GoPro Captures Crazy Encounter with Great White Shark in Sydney Harbor

In a rather raw video posted to Youtube earlier today, a man jumps off some rocks and into the water only to find his friends screaming, "Shark!" behind him. Captured from a GoPro he attached before jumping in, this video gives us get a pretty good POV glimpse of what that would feel like. What would you do in that situation?

There's no way that's real, right?

I don't doubt it's real. Australia is the land of sharks and enormous spiders.

Fake. As Dave Oliver points out, exact same "shark" footage used in another video. Also above water they are looking around with the camera constantly, but under water is a perfectly smooth well composed vid of a shark swimming past.

One thing I have never been able to tolerate is people try to lie through a video or photograph and try to tell me is real. I don't know why this makes me so angry. Lately, I also saw a video of bruce lee playing in a ping pong tournament, and a ball girl doing an incredible catch at a pro game. They looked amazingly real. So I post it on Facebook and end up looking like an idiot. I think this world has got in the habit about lying about whats really reality, "Kardashians"…. Sorry, this is a sore topic for me when I see this stuff. I realize some peoples intentions I guess are just for fun.

whoa Dave...it's meant to stir interest not anger..The video looks good, it's most likely fake, but you know what? When I ask my clients to dip in a photo...totally fake..they don't dip in reality.

Reality is what you make it and for many, what you accept it to be.
Tongue-in-cheek tom foolery like this is entirely good natured as is the ball nearly hitting the reporter and so forth

Why on earth is it uploaded at 480p it shoud be at least 720p coming
from a GoPro. There could be something fishy going on here! Still cool though.

Clearly a fake have a look at the begining of it. Keep an eye on the bird flying over the water.

Also shark behavior is wrong and it jumps arround. The guy pointing is not pointing where the shark is in the water and it goes on and on.

Very clearly a fake :)
