A video of a man dressed as Winnie the Pooh's best friend, Eeyore, beating up a musician on the Las Vegas Strip is going viral.

The fight reportedly happened on Friday night. The video was posted to both YouTube and LiveLeak.com and has received thousands of views and hundreds of comments.

In the video, the two men can be seen yelling at each other. A woman with the musician also gets involved. Next, you then see the musician swing his guitar at Eeyore. That is when Eeyore unleashes on the musician and body slams him to the ground.

The musician appears to be knocked unconscious and someone can be heard yelling "He's Dead!" in the background. The woman jumps back into the fight and begins pushing and kicking the man in costume. Eventually, a man in a black T-shirt breaks up the fight and begins checking on the man on the ground.

WARNING: Graphic language and violence in video.

It is not uncommon for fights to break out between performers on the Las Vegas Strip and at the Fremont Street Experience. Most performers depend on the money they make for survival, and the performers are often very territorial.

Two performers also got into a brawl in August of 2016. That fight was also caught on camera.

Sometimes, the performers also get into a fight with other people visiting the Strip.

That is what happened in 2011 when a video of a person dressed as Batman became involved in a confrontation with a visitor. That video also went viral.
