In the video, a man can be seen wearing a beige button-down shirt, black jeans and sneakers as he walks down the pavement with a brown leather satchel across his body.
He crosses the road before stopping outside a clothes shop to turn around and face the woman.
The man smirks and waves toward the camera before even doffing an imaginary cap in her direction.
He then strolls back across the street toward the woman once again which is where the video ends.
