In 2013 someone caught a strange spectacle on camera. The footage was then posted on YouTube, where over 50 million people have watched it. And it’s not hard to see why viewers have found the video so mesmerizing.
The video opens with a little boy stood in the water on the edge of Valle Gran Rey harbor. As if to attract something, he starts splashing his hand in the waves. And then, not before long, a giant fin arrives sloshing at his feet.
Undeterred by the mysterious mass in the water, the little boy begins throwing fistfuls of food into the deep. As he does so, there’s a noticeable stirring in the ocean. Yes, as the unknown sea creature nears the shore, a number of fish dart out of the way to accommodate it.
