Drunk prankster is filmed going for a swim in hotel’s giant tropical FISH TANK

A drunk prankster is caught on video going for a swim – in a posh hotel’s tropical fish tank.

The intoxicated guest is seen in the hotel lobby clambering fully-clothed into the 12,000-litre glass tank filled with exotic sealife.

He then swims and paddles around – as his giggling friends film him on a phone and laugh in the background.

The man – called Matt – went for a dip in the 6ft tank while staying at the four-star Radisson Blu hotel in Jersey.

But his fun was soon brought to an end by a burly member of staff who shouts: “What are you f***ing doing?”

As Matt finally clambers out dripping wet the furious employee frogmarches him towards the exit as pals urge him: “quick go.”

Bosses at the swish waterfront St. Helier hotel – where rooms cost up to £184 a night – are reviewing security measures following the prank at 10:30pm last Saturday.

Lydia Smith, director of sales and marketing, said the fish were all unharmed.

She added: “It was a careless act and dangerous for all involved, including the fish.”

Footage of the incident has been posted on YouTube where it has been viewed more than 10,000 times.

But YouTube users were equally unimpressed after the video was posted online, with one commenting: “Did you check to see if they had a pool?”

Another web user who came across the 44-second clip wrote: “Maybe try filling the tank with piranha fish”.
