Your TGIF Minute: A Whale Playing FetchNewser — Jenn Gidman
That's not what makes the encounter awesome, however: It's that the people on the boat are playing a game of fetch with the playful creature.
The video starts with the whale cruising alongside the boat with a Rugby World Cup ball in its mouth, getting near enough to one of the boaters so that they can reach down and grab the ball.
The boater then hurls it back into the water, the whale giving chase. It catches the ball, loses it momentarily, goes back to retrieve it, then catches up to the boat to once more do the hand-off.
"It's crazy, yeah," one of the men says off-camera. What's crazy is not watching this at least 10 times to kick off your weekend.
