Yes, it’s random, but it’s funny and weird and that’s all that matters. This was probably just poor timing, but it’s hilarious if you imagine that the fish was having none of it and decided to strike back.
The skier is actually on a college team and posted the video to his Twitter account, so it’s safe to say that he was okay after the incident.
Shout out to HuffPost for sharing this gem. Also, does anyone remember the game of America’s Funniest Home Videos, “Head, Gut or Groin?”
