The video which hilariously shows Mr. Bean causing a traffic jam and descending from a ledge of a building using stairs made of an array of vehicles has gone viral because it reminds one of the dangers of “Pokemon Go,” reports Tech 2.

Players who have engrossed themselves in the gaming app are causing inconveniences for people who have no interest in playing the game. “Pokemon Go” players have been reported to use their mobile devices while riding a bike, visiting a museum, which is dangerous and frowned-upon respectively.

People have even filed complaints of gamers trespassing on their personal property to catch a rare Pokemon. But players are continuing to break the law and put their own lives at risk, regardless.
