Young man scolded on video says he just wants the 'laughable' saga to die down The young man who was scolded by the infamous Bus Uncle yesterday made an appeal to the media: 'Don't bring him to see me.' 'I really do not want to see him again. I would like to call on all media workers not to bring him to see me. Don't bring him to see me please,' said Elvis 'Alvin' Ho, who was the hero of a six-minute video which has been viewed on computers millions of times in Hong Kong and overseas. The encounter took place on the top deck of a double-decker 68X bus travelling to Yuen Long from Jordan. The footage shows Bus Uncle shouting the young man down. Remarks from the harangue have become the talk of the town. 'I face pressure. You face pressure. Why did you provoke me?' was one comment. 'This is not solved. This is not solved,' was another. Mr Ho said: 'I do not want to be put under the spotlight so that some people can use me to make more drama. I really hope the whole saga can die down soon.' Mr Ho's remarks came as a Next Magazine report claimed to have identified the so-called Bus Uncle as 51-year-old Chan Yuet-tung, who made three failed bids for the chief executive post in 1997, 2002 and last year. Reporters yesterday launched a frantic search in Yuen Long in the hope of finding Bus Uncle, who gave an interview to the Chinese-language magazine. Some journalists even suggested arranging a meeting for the infuriated middle-aged man and the 23-year-old property agent. 'I hope all attention on me will be diverted to the World Cup very soon so I can be free again. I now collect all newspaper clippings about this incident and it has become a hot topic when I chat with my family,' said Mr Ho. He said he understood that the incident had attracted lots of media attention in Hong Kong and overseas, but it was still a shock for him. 'I guess it is because the online video is the first reality footage which has been viewed so many times. 'Footage about students being bullied was also posted on the website some time ago, but nobody talked about it after a few days,' he said. 'I still find the whole thing very laughable. Many reporters have been working on this for two weeks. When are they going to stop?' Social worker Shiu Ka-chun, who expressed sympathy for Mr Ho and Bus Uncle, said the media coverage had spun out of control. 'They even want to arrange a meeting between them. Do they want to invite the young man's mother to have tea at a restaurant as well, and ask her to comment on the use of profanity in the footage, and ask them to pose for photographers to take pictures as well? This is crazy.' Mr Shiu said the popularity of the online video around the world demonstrated the effect of globalisation. 'Although the incident happened a month ago, viewers - no matter where they are or when they watch the video - still feel like it is happening right before their eyes. We are living in a world with no borders.'
