It could be assumed that the restaurant was nearby some sort of convention. Judging by the video, nobody alerted a manager or were too grossed out to do so. Or maybe just shocked from the sheer WTFery of a bunch of poorly-dressed slobs in bad costumes spitting into a plastic bucket with a red heart drawn on it in Sharpie.
The trolls are a race of alien-beings or something in the ''Homestuck'' comics. They're incredibly popular to cosplay as, and their signature zodiac T-shirts go out of stock very quickly from the webcomic's site store. The buckets have something to do with how they mate. According to a fan, "troll reproduction occurs when all members of the species put 'genetic material' in a bucket and it gets sent off to a hive queen thingy that mixes it together and lays the actual eggs. The clear implication is that they jizz into a cup but early on in the troll arc a really weird fan artist decided to be 'different' and draw two of the (13-year-old) characters barfing into a bucket and acting like they just had sex. It was a joke. Somehow it spread and now retards think it's canon."
There's no name for this video that's set in stone, but it has gone by a lot of names:
*slobs in bad ''Homestuck'' cosplay
*that video of the trolls spitting in a bucket
*gross of the trolls spitting in a bucket
