A woman puts in a coin and attempts to use her skills to grab one, but she is unsuccessful and the cats carry on regardless.

The clip, which at first seems like a bit of fun, has come in for fierce criticism online.

Facebook users were unhappy after the video, believed to have been filmed in China, was uploaded with the caption: "This claw machine is so rigged!"
