A video of a couple having sex in the fitting room of a Uniqlo store in a busy district of the Chinese capital has gone viral on Chinese social media, news site Shanghaiist reported on Wednesday.

Captured on the mobile phone of the man involved, the video has been making the rounds on messaging app WeChat after being leaked online.

Netizens managed to hunt down the accounts of the people on social media site Weibo, although both users denied that it was them in the video.

It is unclear who leaked the footage online, although some have questioned whether the video was some sort of publicity stunt orchestrated by the normally family-friendly Japanese clothing brand, said the website.

The video has reportedly been removed from the Chinese web, but is apparently still available on WeChat.
