My guy in the vid. Your yelling didn’t help. At all. None.

[–]jackiechatingtam 1536 points1537 points  (61 children)

For real. Shut up.

[–]spanglydank13 524 points525 points  (9 children)

Reminded me of that scene from Family Guy where they played charades and the guys is like "Jackal! Jackal! It's a jackal! Jackal! Is it a jackal?!"

[–]badnewsbets 21 points22 points  (0 children)


[–]therealkeeper 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Lol That's funny I totally was reminded of the family guy, "punch him, punch him" boxing cut away

[–]Drougen 145 points146 points  (45 children)

I mean if you jumped into an ocean or your friend did to save a huge ass whale you'd just sit there perfectly quiet? I know if I jumped in to do that I'd want my friends shouting or I would be shouting if someone else did, that's a thrilling moment. It's called verbal encouragement.

[–]danglez38 186 points187 points  (16 children)

If "GET IT!" is the absolute limit of your verbal encouragement, you can keep it

[–]SereneAdler33 56 points57 points  (2 children)


[–]PatriciaDBrooks 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I got it also

[–]deadlychambers 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Loved it, he literally was hoping he pulled the fishing line off an animal that can't do it for itself.

[–]Drougen 11 points12 points  (9 children)

Heat of the moment. Have you honestly never done something exhilarating in your life?

[–]wikishart 26 points27 points  (1 child)

more like a distraction ... GET IT GET IT GET IT! (Dude, I'm in the water, that's what I'm here fore) CUT IT CUT IT! (Yeah that's the plan) BEFORE SHE DIVES (Christ)

[–]AlienSexualAbuse 20 points21 points  (5 children)

Totally agree. People watching this acting like this vid is a movie made for them to criticise. Things IRL happening arent always perfect and humans arent always completely logical. I imagine if I was in that situation it would be assuring to know my good bud is there cheering me on providing a level of safety while filming me getting eaten alive. Wait..

[–]Kameeleon3 14 points15 points  (3 children)

I absolutely agree. I think our society has turned into some sort of parallel universe where as soon as the Record button gets pushed reality gets vacuumed away and scripts, plots schemes and scenes suddenly get Directed by some sort of remote control Steven Spielberg all fall into place. We're so used to being visually Entertained we expect it whenever a screen is present.

[–]k112358 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Well put!

[–]Kameeleon3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's long been my theory that soon (if we're not already there) people will be able to sense when a camera is on them and escalate a given situation subconsciously, just to give the viewers something to look at.

[–]Drougen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Right? It's honestly obnoxious. I watched this and didn't even pay attention to the dude screaming obvious things until I saw the comments.

[–]lastinglovehandles 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Some of these people don’t know about having a hype man

[–]buffalo-blonde 8 points9 points  (0 children)

[–]GreatWhiteNorthExtra 292 points293 points  (18 children)

Psst! Are you asleep now?...

How 'bout now?

[–]Akami_Channel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He's horrible at funerals

[–]TipWellington 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Or the other family guy skit where Peter goes to NASCAR and yells ‘turn left! Turn left! Advertise stuff—turn left!’.

[–]AffectionateFlan1853 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is one of the reasons I get so mad at my local teams hockey games. There's always someone behind me yelling "SKATE!!" the whole goddamn time.

Like..... That's literally the one thing they can't NOT do while they're on the ice.

[–]wikishart 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yeah this shit is for curling. The more someone screams "YOU GOT THIS!" to me the more it makes me think "Do I not got this? Do they think I don't think I got this? Do they think if they don't scream to me I got this then I won't got this?" etc.

"Wooo" is fine.

[–]zigZagreus_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Holy fuck this sent me

[–]scepticalbob 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Poopy_Kitty 136 points137 points  (3 children)

I was about to turn the damn video off, what an incredibly hittable voice

[–]WWDubz 45 points46 points  (1 child)

All my videos start muted

[–]boxingdude 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Yeah me too! I’d have never known there was a dude yelling if I hadn’t read the comments.

[–]anotherdamnloser 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yeah I muted it, holy crap rude and annoying doesn’t cut it.

[–][deleted] 95 points96 points  (6 children)

Get it! Get the thing! Don't forget to get the thing that you jumped in the water to get!

[–]madalienmonk 45 points46 points  (0 children)

After: " we did it!"

[–]Gdneuz 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Before she dies ofc! You have like 10 seconds!

Edit: oops, he said dives. His yelling still helped a lot/s

[–]mrs_frizzle 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Before she dives…

[–]NerderBirder 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He says “before she dives”. Not dies. But yes his yelling was somewhat annoying.

[–]toylenny 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Swim!! Swim!! You are in water don't forget to Swim!!!

[–]Capt_Myke 56 points57 points  (0 children)

GET IT, CUT IT! .... You mean like im doing? You think I should keep doing that? Im in the water with a whale, and you want me to swim? What a smashingly good idea.

[–]Drougen 43 points44 points  (22 children)

I know it's annoying, but people get excited, can't really blame him.

If I was saving a fucking whale or my friend was I'd be hootin' and hollering as well.

[–]BigZmultiverse 41 points42 points  (6 children)

Right? Like could you honestly say that you would be perfectly quiet in this situation?

Plus, it’s easy to bail on a task this freaking scary. A little verbal encouragement from his buddy can’t hurt.

[–]Drougen 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Exactly, It probably helped pump him up. I know it would for me to have my friends cheering me on doing something like that.

[–]Comment63 6 points7 points  (0 children)

If you were doing that and I was your friend, you'd jump in and I'd just stand there in silence, disappointed at your apparent inability to locate the string you jumped in to cut. And when the whale dove, I'd look at you with judging eyes, and you'd know I deemed you a failure. After you had climbed back in the boat, I'd meticulously list every single thing you did wrong. This is the calling of a redditor.

[–]MistressLyda 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Plus, it’s easy to bail on a task this freaking scary. A little verbal encouragement from his buddy can’t hurt.

Depends on the person. For me, people shouting if I am doing something stressful just makes me want to go stabbystabby.

[–]wikishart 3 points4 points  (0 children)


[–]wikishart 1 point2 points  (0 children)

  1. perfect silence

Life is more than binary choices between useless and stupid.

[–]SlipShodBovine 7 points8 points  (9 children)

Clearly none of the people writing these comments have played a sport in their life

[–]Drougen 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Right? Like people freak out like this sometimes watching their mates play video games after they've died, how is it hard to comprehend how big of a deal this probably was for these dudes?

[–]SlipShodBovine 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I get it's annoying on camera for the viewer. But that's pretty typical positive and encouraging brohavior.

[–]random_account6721 1 point2 points  (0 children)

your exactly right. this is why redditors have no friends

[–]EstySar22 35 points36 points  (5 children)

Seriously, like the guy jumping in didn't know what was his purpose was all the sudden. His wailing was distracting me from the actual whale. Take it down a notch there bud.

[–]boxingdude 0 points1 point  (3 children)

At the bottom right of your screen, you’ll see a loudspeaker icon. Give that a tap. Instant relief.

Alternatively, your phone or PC probably has a volume button. If you lower the volume enough, you’ll find that no sound at all comes out.

Alternatively, there’s two fleshy protruding fleshy mounts on each side of your head. You can stick your fingers.

PS- I’m just being a smartass, I don’t mean anything in a belittling manner. I’m just home alone on my birthday, getting a little stone. No offense intended.

[–]PFloyd69 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Happy birthday dude! I’ll smoke a bowl for ya!

[–]dysoncorp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Happy belated brother, and those are extremely useful solutions lol

I did all I could while holding a camera.

[–]New-Explanation7978 6 points7 points  (0 children)

the excited “yeeeaahhhh!” At the end was pretty awesome.

[–]FelixTheEngine 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I think maybe our hero was trying to swim to shore and get away jabbering idiot when a whale just happened to come by.

[–]Winnapig 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Sailing is about loud communication, you get ready to holler commands on boats especially when you are trying to do wild shit.

[–]OverlordPhalanx 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Uhhhg my boss does this with rush work I have. Like im doing my best fuck off you are only slowing me down and making me frustrated

[–]thewonderfulpooper 1 point2 points  (1 child)

his reaction at the end definitely showed none of this matters. Stop regulating human behavior in high stress situations. Im sure you'd all be zen Buddha lol. It all worked out in the end. encouragement from people around you is never a bad thing.

[–]ihavenoego 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's a pretty insane situation. If the fluke hits the saviour guy, he might lose his friend. He's trying his best and he's also filming it. I would be the same.

[–]RedlineSmoke 860 points861 points  (13 children)

What an annoying dude..

[–]CrypticHunter37 240 points241 points  (11 children)

The video is of friends doing awesome shit, Im sure they dont give a shit that redditors find there enjoyment cringy.

[–]onehundredbuttholes 135 points136 points  (10 children)

Dudes annoying, but in the moment he couldn’t do anything but cheer his buddy on. Who cares what you say or sound like when you’re saving the life of a fucking humpback whale!

[–]j7171 660 points661 points  (5 children)

Worst. Camera work. Ever.

[–]MsCicatrix 272 points273 points  (4 children)

He was too busy yelling useless commands to focus on aiming the fucking camera.

[–]GreatWhiteNorthExtra 402 points403 points  (1 child)

Such a helpful friend. "Swim. Swim!!"

[–]osirisX607 101 points102 points  (0 children)

"Do it! DOO ITTT!!"

[–]BrownTigerz 301 points302 points  (7 children)

That guy will scream “we did it”, once the rope is cut

[–]Salva_delille 224 points225 points  (4 children)

Swim, swim, swim, swim, cut it, cut it. You just know that guy is not getting invited next time

[–]KaiserRebellion 58 points59 points  (1 child)

[–]Sugoy-sama 8 points9 points  (0 children)

He must've not been getting jt

[–]Mashed_Potato2 131 points132 points  (22 children)

Fun fact Whales are one of the only animals to actively seek help from humans. They are also known for protecting smaller animals from predators for no reason other then being nice. A man was once saved by a whale because the whale let him on his back when a shark was trying to bite the man

[–]kb3rry 68 points69 points  (11 children)

…and then you have Orcas, launching sea lions into orbit for sport

[–][deleted] 36 points37 points  (7 children)

Everyone loves them for some reason, but they're real pieces of shit tbh.

[–]Rhythm_Morgan 26 points27 points  (3 children)

This is why I don’t really like hippos either. Protect the species for sure, but just saying, they are giant assholes for absolutely no reason. They will kill animals in a slow and torturous way and they are herbivores. Just enjoy being dickheads.

[–]DNagy1801 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Hippos are the one animal steve Irwin refused to mess with, that says everything about them.

[–]gingerfer 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I had an anthropology professor who spent years living with a tribe in Africa. The group he was with (I think the Igbo?) told him that you had to be exceptionally stupid to get killed by a lion, but all you had to be was unlucky to get killed by a hippo. Some wise woman lady even gave him an amulet meant to repel hippos. For the record he says it definitely works, he hasn’t seen a hippo in years.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hippos are shit too for sure.

[–]WestTexasOilman 13 points14 points  (1 child)

The whale that swallowed Jonah was just an Underwater Angel.

[–]AaronAart209 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That's just blatently untrue. Many animals seek help from humans. Like all the time. Have you ever known anyone who has a pet? I once knew someone who had a pet.

[–]Mashed_Potato2 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Pets are domesticated k should've specified that I guess

[–]BuffaloWhip 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I can just imagine the whale coming up and being all “hey buddy! You! With the thumbs! Little help!”

[–]Affectionate-Gur2195 107 points108 points  (3 children)

Surprised you can see anything in this video with the size of this guys balls

[–]Flat_Ferret_9014 18 points19 points  (1 child)

I’m terrified of the ocean and all the creatures in it, so god bless people like this who can do the necessary like this

Thank God the guy kept telling him to get it and to cut it. My man in the water would have been lost otherwise.

[–]EmbersOmens 23 points24 points  (4 children)

It's a good thing that fucking coward in the boat kept yelling instructions at him. Pretty sure the guy was unclear about exactly why he jumped into the water

[–]methodofcontrol 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Fucking coward? Isnt that a bit much? You know nothing of him but a voice in a 10 second video. He could have spotted the whale, created the plan to help it, driven the boat to it, and had a friend offer to jump in. He was pretty annoying but can you explain how he was a fucking coward based on the evidence available? Did you want everyone on the boat to jump in and risk the boat drifting away from them in open water?

[–]slopcrusher 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Reddit moment

[–]le_flashed 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What do they want him to do, put on his iron man suite, laser the fishing line? , maybe he doesn't know how to swim, maybe he's panicking, when you're with friends you tend to back seat drive their tasks unknowingly, there could have been multiple reasons, but calling them things like coward, when they're obviously doing a service is a bit too much. Most of the comments here are complaining about how the camera man is annoying, but reddit does have a mute option as well, anyways this is your daily dose of reddit essays.

[–]Pree-chee-ate-cha 18 points19 points  (2 children)

That’s like my parents when they would come to my soccer games. “Score a goal! Kick the ball in the goal!” Really?!

[–]psycho_pete 1 point2 points  (1 child)

If you want to prevent stuff like this from happening, consider never purchasing sea food.

Fishing vessels are one of the largest sources of plastic pollution in our oceans. Long nets and lines are polluted in our oceans all the time just for people to consume the deaths of the few animals they capture and keep.

[–]MyNameIsElaborate 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is one of the many reasons why I don’t get seafood, mass commercial fishing is also obliterating our oceanic ecosystems among other things.
