This one is for real. An octopus-wielding seal singled out a particular kayaker from the group and made it very clear his presence wasn't welcome in another moment of pure, spontaneous, GoPro gold.
Shot on the Hero 7, which helped the smoothness of the video of the even smoother seal, this video was recently captured by Instagram user Taiyo Masuda, who was using the new GoPro to show off its new Hyper Smooth stabilization feature (if you haven't seen it, it's amazing. Our review will be coming soon, but check out Masuda's profile for some excellent examples). Thankfully, this rare incident of an animal using another animal as a weapon was all captured with GoPro's latest camera just days after its release:
It would perhaps be a bit too naive to think this seal was simply trying to deliver a fresh pescatarian meal to the kayaker. Perhaps octo-slapping someone in the face is the ultimate expletive of the sea. But you have to admit: that's one creative seal.
