A viral video shows the moment scores of motorists helped themselves to bottles of beer strewn along a highway.

A beer truck appears to have lost control of its load, strewing bottles of beer on the side of the highway and along an on-ramp.
Some motorists saw this as an opportunity for "free" beer and stopped their cars to grab several bottles. The scramble caused a minor traffic backlog.
The incident sparked debate among social media users. Some thought that those who engaged in the scramble had no self-respect and reflected badly on society.
However, others had a more humorous take on the unfolding scene.
