KELOWNA – A very short video shot at Kelowna’s downtown block party reached millions of people over the weekend.

The video titled Girl Does What She Wants shows a person walking down Bernard Avenue during the annual Downtown Kelowna Block Party on Saturday, July 23. She strolls casually towards a dunk tank where a man waits for someone to throw a ball and knock him in the water.

The girl says nothing but gives a look to the camera before sprinting towards the tank and pressing the button. The man falls into the water and the girl takes off.

The video lasts only seconds but after being posted to Unilad, a UK website, it has been viewed almost five million times and gotten more than 18,000 shares.
