This is the viral moment a band plays ‘My Heart Will Go On’ from the movie ‘Titanic’ as water floods a shopping centre apparently mimicking the vessel’s watery demise.
The funny incident was filmed at the Plaza Patria Shopping Centre in the city of Guadalajara in the western Mexican state of Jalisco and posted on Twitter where it has been viewed over 6 million times.
In the footage, water is seen gushing to the shopping centre’s ground floor as people take cover in shops and walkways.
With rainwater flooding the floor, the band plays the opening notes to the instantly-recognisable love song ‘My Heart Will Go On’, the main theme from the 1997 James Cameron blockbuster ‘Titanic’.
After realising that the band is playing the Celine Dion ballad, the cameraperson wanders towards them to film the funny rendition, reminiscent of the scene when the musicians are playing on the deck of the doomed ship as people desperately try to get a place on the limited number of lifeboats.
At one point, a female worker is seen placing a small bucket under the gushing downpour.
According to reports, the incident followed a period of heavy storms that battered Guadalajara, upended trees and caused significant material damage.
Netizen ‘HelloTef’ said: “This is a flood with style!”
‘ErnestoFanoC’ commented: “Women and children first, to the lifeboats! Musicians: ‘We will keep playing’.”
‘ElCotelo’ wrote: “That woman putting a small bucket under the ‘waterfall’ deserves a special mention!”
The RMS Titanic was a British passenger ship that sank in the Atlantic Ocean in 1912 after it struck an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York.
