A MAN filmed causing traffic chaos by eating a takeaway in the middle of a busy road is a self-styled practical joker from Thornton Heath. The clip of a couple eating at a small table while sitting on children's chairs in the street by Whitehorse Road roundabout has been watched by thousands of people since the story was posted on the Advertiser's website yesterday (Thursday). But the man in the black baseball cap and jacket – seen hurling abuse at angry drivers – is actually a serial offender when it comes to inane stunts. He goes by the name Ashley_Inkz1 on social networking website Keek, where users upload video status updates, called "keeks", via a webcam or mobile phone apps for Android or iPhone. Ashley has more than 54,000 followers and nearly 7,000 subscribers on the site, and has posted more than 220 videos. Overall his videos have been viewed more than two million times. Last month Ashley posted a video of himself pulling the same traffic-stopping gag, this time talking on a mobile phone in the middle of London Road in Norbury wearing only his underwear. Again long queues of traffic are form in front of him, but he tells the drivers: "No ones not getting nowhere today."

Some of his other "pranks" involve pulling up to people in the street and asking directions and then swearing at them. In one video he asks a man how to get to Brixton and, before he can answer, Ashley tells him to "go eat ****" before driving off. Other videos see the prankster taking part in impromptu "raves" in venues across Croydon, including restaurant Cosmo, supermarkets and a branch of Subway, as well as pretending to be a rastafarian called "Glenford". In another clip he claims other people on Keek are "copying" his style, adding: "Be original, man. This is me and what I do. I like it anyway, I'm inspiring you out there." In the Whitehorse Road video, Ashley is seen shouting at drivers who are beeping their horns at him as he sits in the road. "I'm eating my food, bruv. What? I'm eating my food. ******* shut your mouth."
