If A Shark Ever Tries To Eat You, Just Feed It Your Expensive Underwater Camera Rig Instead

If you're squeamish about expensive camera gear getting destroyed, or large underwater creatures with rows of razor sharp teeth, you'll definitely want to skip this clip. It's kind of a PSA about the dangers of swimming with sharks, except that it probably doesn't end how you'd except.

In fact, the only thing that gets hurt in this video is an expensive-looking underwater camera and flash rig, someone's pocketbook, and a photographer's ego for abandoning their gear on the ocean floor. There's no telling why the shark grabbed the rig, but the safe assumption is that like anyone amateur with a DSLR these days, it has dreams of becoming a professional wedding photographer.

    It was camera shy and didn't want it's photo taken..

    If a Tiger shark got that close to me I'd probably try distracting it with something too.

    The way the shark wondered off was like a dog with a new toy.

    Smart tactic from the shark. Trying something new. Steal camera gear and hope the
    owner goes swimming after him, breaking away from the pack.
    Then the attack comes... Not from the front.. but from the siideeee Shhwwpppp!!
    ..and the two other sharks. you didn't even notice where there.

    Is the sentence that says "It’s kind of a PSA about the dangers of swimming with sharks, except that it probably doesn’t end how you’d except" supposed to end with "accept" or "expect"?

    Since it doesn't make any sense at all the way it is, I assume it's a typo of expect.
