Yet another wild video shows a large crowd gathering in a Chicago apartment for a party, but this time they have a stripper for the unhygienic occasion.
The clip comes as Chicago police charge a woman in connection to another party that had more than 1,000 in attendance.
The latest footage, filmed by Marlene Ellis in Chicago, shows a woman dancing to music as partygoers throw money onto her. While she is wearing a top, it does not appear that she is wearing bottoms.
Footage obtained by TMZ shows that no one in the crowd was wearing masks or any form of protective gloves, and social distancing was clearly not in existence.

Folks can be seen slapping the woman on her butt as she dances for the money.
She dances for a couple of moments before exiting out of the room and some folks come to collect her money.
The video comes as Chicago police cite a homeowner for disorderly conduct following a crowded weekend house party that was later condemned by Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Gov. J.B. Pritzker.
Officers responded to the northwest side home early Sunday after receiving multiple calls and dispersed about 50 people from the residence, Chicago police spokesman Luis Agostini said. Illinois is under a statewide stay-at-home order as part of efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus, and the party drew media attention after video from it was posted online.

Police cited the homeowner Monday, Agostini said, the same day Lightfoot blasted the party, which to her looked like 'hundreds' of people standing 'literally cheek to jowl.'
'It goes against all the things we've been talking about,' Lightfoot said.
The party was 'foolish and reckless,' she said.
'Every single person there who put themselves at risk puts the next person and the next person that they come into contact with at risk,' Lightfoot said.

Pritzker on Sunday criticized the people at the party for 'putting everyone around you in danger,' the Chicago Tribune reported.
Videos emerged on social media showing the raucous group dancing, drinking, and chatting in a packed room on Saturday, ignoring warnings to practice social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Lightfoot and Pritzker have been strict in their lockdown orders, barring people from leaving their homes except for essential trips and banning gatherings of over 10 people through May 30.
However, the group of youngsters defied all preventative measures and gathered for an evening of fun.

'[There] were about 1,000 people in the yard and in the house. It was really crowded and hot,' one 23-year-old attendee said to MTO News.
'I'm not worried about [the coronavirus]…but if I didn't have it before, I probably got it now. Oh well,' she added.
The source said attendees were enjoying themselves and were not worried about the coronavirus pandemic, which has infected 48,100 people and killed more than 2,100 in Illinois.
Social media users voiced their outrage over the gathering as Chicago reels from the impact of COVID-19

'This upsets me because everyone is thinking about themselves and not others that they may be spreading it to. Death just doesn't seem like something to be serious about to most during this pandemic,' Chicago resident Jayna Lynn commented on the video.
'The carelessness/selfishness shown here, is going to hurt so many, and knowing that is so disheartening. People are legit dying & from the looks of this, more deaths to come,' one Twitter user added.
Last week Pritzker extended lockdown orders through May 31 for Illinois.
'I know how badly we all want our normal lives back. But this is the part where we have to dig in and understand that the sacrifices we've made as a state to avoid a worst-case scenario are working — and we need to keep going a little while longer to finish the job,' he said.
The new order requires residents cover their faces in public spaces and practice social distancing.
Chicago's mayor commended the announcement as 'appropriate' and said she could extend the city's lockdown into June.
