Michael Bergin of Malden, Massachusetts, and his friend came across a strange fish. Then they proceeded to freak the fuck out in the most perfect Massachusetts way possible. Listen with sound for A+++ Boston accents:
"I don't know what this is, but Jay says it's a big sea turtle. No, it's a baby fucking whale! Holeee shit, we are witnessing a baby fahking whale right now, bro!"
"Oh man, Jay, that's a tuna, bro! Look at that thing! We are seeing some shit we have never seen before..."
Someone dubbed Michael's voice over an '80s ad for the New England Aquarium:
And someone made this Jaws mashup:
The fish is almost certainly an ocean sunfish, or a common mola — a large weirdly shaped thingy that's not totally uncommon in the Atlantic Ocean. Don't worry — they mostly eat just jellyfish.
This is Michael in happier times when he's not seeing monsters of the deep:
Thank you, Michael. You may not be the hero Massachusetts wanted, but you're the one we deserve.
