We all know what happens when you assume.

A male fan thought he was giving out free tickets to the gun show at an Arena Football game two weeks ago when the “Flex Cam” zoomed in on him.

Arena football team Philadelphia Soul games feature a “Flex Cam” during a break in the action, encouraging spectators to flex for the camera shown on the jumbotron. One woman attending a game gave fans a big surprise when the “Flex Cam” was aimed at her.

The video, posted to the Soul’s YouTube channel, begins like most others, showing fans flexing for the camera. At one point, he turns around to look at two women who were laughing behind him and points to his bicep as if to say “Don’t act like you’re not impressed.”  The camera focuses on the man showing off his muscles. A little later, the camera comes back to the woman sitting behind him. She flexes her own muscles, and the crowd goes wild as she shows him up.

The announcer can be heard laughing at the man and saying “Man, you’ve been stoned, my brother!”

According to a local TV station in the area, this whole thing was staged. The man in the video is a strength and conditioning coach, and the woman showing off her muscles was his fiancee!

The Soul’s YouTube version of the video has been viewed nearly 5 million times. The woman said she’s encouraged by the feedback the video has gotten from other women. The man said his friends praised him for his acting in the clip. He denied this, saying:”That wasn’t an act,” he said. “I’ve never seen her flex before and when I saw her do it I was very impressed.”
