A few days ago a video had gone viral showing a frozen fish coming back to life when dipped into a jar of water. Here comes another shocking video of a fish which is served on a platter with opened mouth which suddenly closes after having an alcohol shot.

It was a shocking moment when the fish came back to life, the video is believed to be captured in China. It shows the carp with large slices cut into its back.

Just as the alcohol shot is poured into its mouth the fish gulps closing its mouth tightly and opening it once again - and appears to swallow the liquid before returning to a vegetative state.

The video has sparked an online debate with many believing it to be alive. While others drew their conjectures that the creature had been prepared in the style of Yin Yang fish - where the animal has its head wrapped in a wet cloth to keep it alive while its body is cooked.

Though the practice has been banned in many countries owing to the excessive cruelty and has also been criticized by animal activists. But its not clear yet whether the fish has been prepared in this way or not!
