The victim, who is in his 20s, survived the assault which saw his attackers kick his head against a petrol pump.
The CCTV footage, taken from a petrol station in Birmingham at 4.30am on Saturday, shows the man initially trying to escape.
He is seen to stumble and fall against a car which had finished filling up at the pump before the driver speeds off.
The victim falls over and is kicked and punched repeatedly by two Asian men while he holds his hands up begging for mercy.
The 1.09-minute clip shows the men kicking his head dozens of times before he slumps unconscious with his head resting at a grotesque angle at the foot of the petrol pumps.

A young woman wearing a dress and high heels comes to the man’s aid but is forced to flee when a hooded yob marches over to the unconscious man and jabs him in the throat.
Another man is then seen rifling through the injured man’s pockets.
The man is seen to come to but is savagely kicked in the face knocking him out again.
The three yobs are then seen casually walking away from the man who lies motionless on his back.
Pritesh Pattni, 45, manager of the petrol station, posted the footage on Facebook in a desperate bid to catch the thugs.
The married father-of-three said: “It is the most shocking, savage attack I have ever seen.
“I was not at the petrol station at the time but my staff said that a taxi pulled up with three men inside.
“They started having words with a group of men and then punches were exchanged. They chased one of the men onto the forecourt and he fell over.
“He was punched and kicked against the petrol pump. It was sickening the way he was attacked while lying unconscious.
“The attackers were Asian and black. I don’t know if it was racially motivated or not. I have passed the footage onto the police who are investigating.
“I understand the victim was taken to hospital and suffered a fractured skull and eye socket. He could have easily been killed.”
Two men, aged 19 and 21, have been arrested on suspicion of assault following the “ferocious” petrol station attack.
Despite fears the 25-year-old victim suffered a fractured skull and eye socket, police revealed he suffered non-serious injuries.
West Midlands Police are now appealing for witnesses to the attack to come forward.
Detective Constable Sandra O’Reilly, from Birmingham’s Violent Crime Team, said: “We are aware of CCTV that has been circulated that shows the ferocity of the attack.
“Two men have been arrested and bailed pending further enquiries and we are yet to trace a further two men who we believe were involved in the attack.
“We believe that someone will know the men and would appeal for them to come forward.
“Our enquiries continue and we would ask the men in the footage to do the right thing and hand themselves in; it is only a matter of time before we come knocking at your door.
“The footage is extremely distressing to watch but fortunately the victim continues to recover from his injuries.”
