A video showing three women running into a group of men and beating them up in an underpass has gone viral on social media.

Is it true?: No. The video was first uploaded by French stunt team Campus Univers Cascades and has no connection to the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict.


How did we find out?: In one part of the video, we noticed that one man was wearing a jacket with the letters 'CUC' on the back.

The back of the man's jacket carried the letters 'CUC', encircled in white.

  • Next, we used InVID WeVerify, a video verification extension on Chrome, to divide the video into viral keyframes.

  • We ran a reverse image search on one of them, supplementing it with the keywords 'CUC fight'.

  • This search led us to another fight video on a Facebook page called Campus Univers Cascades (CUC).

  • The page's 'Intro' section called it "the largest stunt school in the world," located in Le Cateau, France, which teaches aspiring stuntpersons and choreographs fight sequences for entertainment purposes.

  • Taking a cue from this, we looked for more details about this school. This led us to their Instagram page, which had uploaded the video from the viral claim on 2 November.

The post's caption carried several hashtags – such as #stuntteam, #cinema, and #choregraphy (sic) – which confirmed that the fight in the video was staged.

The Quint has reached out to CUC and will update this article as and when we receive a response.

Conclusion: A choreographed video of a fight, created by French stunt school Campus Univers Cascades, is being shared with false claims.
