A lot of people claim they have the worst friends in the world, but this guy can make a serious bid to claim that title, as his friends blurred the line between a harmless prank and attempted murder by pushing him off a boat into shark-infested waters.


The YouTube video shows the surfer sitting on the side of a boat as his friends, the worst friends in the world, push him overboard.

Sounds harmless, right? Suddenly, a giant shark is seen rapidly approaching with its mouth wide open.

The surfer swiftly climbed back into the boat just as the shark swam by, looking for a meal.

According to the guy who uploaded the video, it was shot in Ireland off the west coast beach town of Rossnowlagh. 


The man’s friends didn’t panic or show concern as he struggled to get back in the boat on the brink of death, but rather laughed like hyenas.


“What the fuck?! That was mad!” the cameraman says after the victim was pulled back aboard.

The victim of the nearly deadly prank was a surprisingly good sport.


“He kept coming at me,” the surfer said. 

He said he punched at the shark to beat it away.

As crazy as the video looks, the pranksters claim it wasn’t as dangerous as it seems.

The shark in question is reportedly a basking shark – a gentle plankton eater that is not dangerous to humans. 

I don’t know, but if I get thrown off a boat in front of a shark, I probably wouldn’t be as good of a sport.
