Guy Captures Terrifying Close Encounter With Great White Shark on GoPro Camera: VIDEO


So some online are saying that this video of a guy in Sydney Harbour capturing a close encounter with a Great White shark on his GoPro camera is fake – but you be the judge.

Fake or not, I still found the video horrifying in a “scream holy sh*t at your computer screen” kind of way.

  2. Hmmm, every scene with the shark is slow and steady and all the others are whack.

  3. Sydney, not "Sidney". It's one of the largest, most prominent cities and metro areas on the planet. Come on.

  7. Fake. How convenient that as soon as he hits the water his pal on the cliff screams out, "Shark!" Because, you know, the shark wasn't at all visible before the swimmer jumped off the cliff. And further, the guy swimming really does not exactly swim a beeline to land, now, does he? #poser

  8. Nothing scary about that. Just made me seasick.

  9. Sidney? Is that near Melbin or Pirth?

  10. Yeah...splashing around like a wounded animal in distress is just what you should do when you see a shark a few feet away. Bleeding a little would also help.

    My vote is its fake but its interesting to watch.

  12. Also it's Sydney 'Harbour' not 'Harbor'. Jeez Louise.

  13. No Australian in their right might would swim TOWARDS a shark, or spend that long in the water with one. I'm almost certain this is fake. Still, both the guy and the shark are pretty (in different ways!)

  14. Who yells "shark..." when their friend is near a shark. And are these dudes gay? Why is this happening to us?

  15. Totally fake. How is that not obvious?

  16. This shark hysteria is a sign of crazy...they keep the oceans clean....

  17. Nice bulge though.

  18. This has a very "Blair Witch Project" feel. Complete with wet face at the end. (Seawater this time though, not boogers.)
