In 2013, someone caught a strange spectacle on camera. The footage later appeared 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. He beginnings to splash his hand in the waves as if to attract something. And then, before too long, a giant fin arrives splashing at his feet.
Undeterred by the mysterious mass in the water, the little boy begins throwing fistfuls of food into the deep. But as he does so, there’s a noticeable stirring in the ocean. In fact, some fish dart out the way, as if to accommodate the unknown sea creature.
