Video of the Week: Ford Workers Fight It Out

We don't know why these workers at a Ford plant -- it says KTP, so we assume it's Ford's Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville -- are fighting, but we can't stop watching.

A fight club? Is someone mad at their co-worker for whatever reason? Simple boredom? Again, the reasons are unknown, and it's hard to hear from the audio.

All I can say is that fighting in the middle of an active factory floor seems quite dangerous.

Take a peek at it here.

    They stopped when the forklift approached (had a family friend killed by a forklift).

    Oddly, there will be a recall for vehicles assembled on this day and shift. 250 affected units. Was it a Friday?

    I work at this plant and these are NOT Ford employees. They are contracted cleaning crew.
