I know we all tend to let a little too loose on the weekends. Who could blame us? Life is an endless horrible string of stressful events, sometimes you just have to LET GO. There’s nothing wrong with it. Sometimes you just have to grab your board and get in the water, and sometimes you just have to paddle way out, way further out than you’ve gone before. It feels great for a few moments, just relaxing on the water next to some of your friends who are in a boat and some of your other friends who are in another boat and are filming you. So quiet. So peaceful. “Could life get any better than this?” you think to yourself. You feel relaxed and grateful, recharging for what is surely going to be another stressful week at the office. And then you feel it — something’s off balance. Something’s approaching. What could it be? Another surfer? Another boat, maybe? A big bird? A stupid gross fish? And then out of the corner of your eye you see it — AHH! A HUGE WHALE THAT WOULD HAVE THROWN YOU UP IN THE AIR AND PROBABLY EATEN IF YOU HAD BEEN JUST A LITTLE TO YOUR RIGHT!

So let this be a lesson to you. If you’re going to go surfing this weekend, please, watch out for whales. They’re absolutely so big and apparently very sneaky, plus they attract a LOT of noisy, annoying seagulls. Stay safe. (Via StuffIStole.)

  4. Helluva Sea Gull-p

  5. I think the title of the video should be changed to “Pretty Lady on a Surfboard Almost Gets Swallowed by a Whale” can I get Winwood’s approval on this one?

  6. I am AMAZED that you could hear the seagulls in this video but you couldn’t hear one single human voice screaming, “HOLY SHIT WE GOTTA GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE!”

  7. if this were a movie, the whale would have missed juuuuuuuuuuust a little bit closer…and taken that woman’s top with it. Copyright 2011. explainer guy productions.

  8. “Oh look a whale!”

  9. I’m going to attempt to post a .gif but it probably won’t work. If it does though, yea!

    The video cut off a bit early….here’s the real ending. Everyone knows whales love rum ham!
