Three men were detained in North China's Shanxi Province after they posted video of themselves parading down the street with machetes and air guns "for fun."

The video uploaded on Saturday shows the men with what appear to be guns, machetes and grenades hanging from their waists, read a WeChat post by Quanyang police.

The video has since been deleted.

An investigation revealed the men were carrying air guns that were no longer functional and the grenades were fake. The machetes, however, were real.

The men told the police that they recorded the video merely for fun and wanted to appear as "gangsters."

The three men are currently being held in detention.
