Man With GoPro Attached Escapes Great White Shark

great-white-escape.jpg

This is a questionable video of thrill-seeker/possible jackass Terry Tufferson illegally jumping off a cliff into Sydney Harbor when he encounters a great white. So what does he do? Involuntarily shit his bathing suit like a normal person? Maybe. But he also managed to escape. DETAILS AT ELEVEN. Jk jk, details in the little paragraph I copy/pasted below.

As soon as he jumps in, he surfaces and his mates scream, "shark!" Terry, instead of panicking and swimming away like many of us mere mortals would do, actually did what experts say you should: face it, kick at it, and don't panic.

First of all, while he certainly did face it and kick at it, I would argue there was definitely still some serious panicking going on. Secondly, if I've said it once I've said it a million times: we need to fill the oceans with concrete. Sure they cover 71% of earth's surface and are largely unexplored, but come on. If Godzilla, Pacific Rim, H.P. Lovecraft and old pirate lore have taught us anything, it's that whatever surprises the depths of the oceans hold are inevitably going to kill us. Plus if we did fill the oceans with concrete we could drive to any continent! Want to visit Japan or the Egyptian pyramids? Drive or take a train! Don't act like I'm not on to something here. "Earth would die." EARTH IS GOING TO DIE ANYWAYS. Now, meet me at the beach this weekend with as much Quikrete as your local Home Depot has for sale. "That's going to take forever." Hey -- Rome wasn't built in a day.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to fill 'er up, who agreed to help me with my fill the oceans with concrete plan as long as I promised to make a sandcastle first. DEAL.

    It's a fake... I dont know this place, but i think that at the bottom of the cliff the depth is less than 50 meter... as we can see at 00:58 and after...

  • Eddie Gooch

    Fake! The shadows are all wrong. This is just like a scene in the movie... bla..bla... I cant remember the rest

  • asdfasdfasdf

    NEVER BACK DOWN

    should have turned and fought the shark not run, just a couple good jabs at the nose, maybe punch your arm into the gill slits or something for good measure
    or stab it in the eye or something
    "drown" it with piss like how squid spray ink

  • Jonny Campbell

    Fake.

  • Johna Daya

  • NO NO NO. NOPE. NO. NO..... NOPE. NEVER. NO. NO.

    NOPE.

  • Looks like a "Dave"

    The shark swam away because he couldn't 'breathe' with all that pee in the water.

  • doctor stinkstah

    I think I also spotted a dingle berry. thestinky dot com

  • Jenness

    Maybe the shark just ate something and wasn't hungry for "idiot".

  • DeathBotGamma

    I think the Shark needs a web redemption on Tosh.0

  • Kelsey Custodio

    Dude, the shark did shit all, it was just swimming, it wasn't even going for him.

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    I was swimming around when I heard a loud noise, like when a dolphin jumps. I was pretty sure there were no dolphins around but I went to check it anyway. Like they say, there is aways space for some dolphin.
    When I found it it was no dolphin, it was pale had 4 tentacles, and when it saw me it looked at me and made a horrible noise!

    Dude, it was just some octopus!

    No man, an octopus wouldn't make those noises! It didn't moved like anything I ever seen! I swear to you! It was totally an alien!

    In the words of benny.... at 0:58 the shark teleports, we're all fucked if sharks can now teleport.

  • Zachary Zarko

    That cliff needs a "Caution: Shark Pit Below" sign.

  • Closet Nerd

    DAMN YOU DARWIN!

  • Sam E

    It's obviously fake. What were the chances of this? And he seemed pretty chill afterwards.
