One poor kayaker was simply minding his own business during a trip with colleagues, taking in the serenity of the open water, when suddenly the WEIRDEST thing imaginable happened.
A seal suddenly emerged from down below and SLAPPED HIM in the face with a freaking OCTOPUS! And yep, the whole thing was caught on camera!
Kyle Mulinder had been paddling with a group off the coast of Kaikoura, on New Zealand’s South Island, when the strange incident happened and was caught on a GoPro.
Speaking with Yahoo7 News, Mr Mulinder said that the seal had seemed harmless at first.
“We were just sitting out in the middle of the ocean and then this huge male seal appeared with an octopus and he was thrashing him about for ages,” said Mr Mulinder.
Suddenly, the seal dove back into the water before re-emerging and jumping straight for Mr Mulinder, whipping him with the sea creature directly in the face!
“I was like ‘mate, what just happened?’”, he continued. “It was weird because it happened so fast but I could feel all the hard parts of the octopus on my face like ‘dum du dum’”.
Watch the seriously strange moment occur in the video above! We promise it’s the best thing you’ll see all day.
