The truth behind the viral video with a twist so crazy the internet can't believe it

It's a viral video with a twist so crazy the internet can't believe it.

The video, which appears to have been taken by a bystander in New York, shows an angry bus driver appearing to pick up a young child's toys and throw them off the vehicle.

The 'child' is then picked up and hurled off while the driver screams obscenities at the boy.

The shocked public reacts in anger, yelling in anger and disbelief. One woman attacks the driver, screaming "that's a kid".

"What's wrong with you," another shouts.

The bystanders rush to the child's aid as he lies motionless and face-down.

But when the so-called child is helped to their feet, the truth is revealed. It's actually a very short bearded man.

The video has taken the internet by storm - and taken many people in.

"Arrest him and file assault charges. Oh and fire him first," one person commented on the video.

Now the video creator has revealed the truth in a behind-the-scenes video.

"He's a school student that's getting on my f**king nerves. So I'm the angry bus driver who's just fed up and had enough of him. I'm not even going to walk him off my bus, I'm going to throw him off this bus," the creator, Daniel Jean says.

"People are going to get mad watching this!"
