Gary Ousalice took to his TikTok account @garyousalice969 to share the clip which has racked up over 1.4 million views.

During service at the bar, which is in the New Zealand House, waiters stopped in the middle of the day to suddenly sing their own rendition of AC/DC’s “You Shook Me All Night Long.”

The clip showed the waitresses, who donned the infamous orange shorts and white tank tops emblazoned with the company logo, gathered around a few tables.

The girls then start clapping and singing while incorporating dance moves as people eat their meals.

Others were confused as to why the waitresses were all singing in American accents when they belonged to Scouser.

However, it wasn’t just social media users who hit back at the new restaurant, local Liverpool council weren’t too happy either.

Liverpool Labor councilor Maria Toolan launched a petition against the chain opening a franchise in the city earlier this year.

“Hooters is an archaic, chauvinistic brand and this type of place no longer reflects today’s society,” reads his petition.

“Hooters employs women to promote its business activities in an exploitative way. This demeans and degrades women and undermines women’s equality.”

But after securing a business licence, Liverpool Council’s planning department rejected plans for the illuminated signs that would be erected at the Hooters site because it is located in a conservation area.

City center councilor Nick Small objected to the planned signs, saying they would ‘belong more to Amsterdam’s red light district than Liverpool’s oldest conservation area’.

He added: “The proposed signage, banner and flag are shiny, conspicuous and do not respect the character of the area.”

In a notice of decision rejecting the signage plans, a Liverpool Council report said: ‘Due to size, design and location, the proposed illuminated vertical signs, banner and flag would not reach not to preserve the character and appearance of the Candidature Building and Castle Street Conservation Area and the setting of the adjacent listed buildings.’

Hooters – which has another UK site in Nottingham – was granted a license to open in Liverpool following a hearing in February.

It comes after an Under-10 football team in Nottingham were told they had to cancel their sponsorship deal with their local Hooters bar.

The deal between Burton Joyce FC and Hooters has sparked controversy on Twitter due to the American bar’s reputation for giving its female staff revealing uniforms, leading some critics to call the bar ‘demeaning’ to women .

He has now been banned by the Nottingham FA. Despite expansion efforts, the Nottingham branch remains the only Hooters in the country.
