Watch This Man’s Extreme Joyride on a Moving Shark [VIDEO]

Man joyrides on shark

In a stunt that brings new meaning to the phrase “jump the shark,” a Cape Cod man actually jumped on top of a shark, riding atop it for 15 feet through the ocean. Naturally, he got footage of the whole thing.

“I’ve been waiting for an opportunity like this my whole life,” said fisherman Erik Jacobs, who spotted a basking shark swimming around his boat, and then pounced.

Although basking sharks are the second biggest fish in the ocean, they eat plankton and small fish, and it’s unlikely one would munch on anything as large as a human.

Nevertheless, wildlife officials classified Jacobs’ joyride as “dangerous.”  See the video below:
