Variables Production is outdoor clothing line Patagonia’s new adventure YouTube channel. Their debut video has already gone viral. Spear fisher and Patagonia ambassador Kimi Werner stars in the video as she free Dives in the Pacific Ocean looking for fish.
On one dive, she encountered the biggest Great White shark she had ever seen. Instead of fleeing, she swam towards the great beast, until the two were swimming together.
“I know she could have eaten me at any second she wanted to, but in this moment we are just two animals, two predators swimming together.”
Surprises while fishing are almost guaranteed to go viral if caught on camera. Last summer, Sarah Brame went viralviral after a shark stole the catch she was reeling in–all caught on video. Now, her video stands with over 11 million views.
After the initial excitement calmed, Isaac couldn’t help but scream expletives as a way to cope with the quick surge of adrenaline and energy. It’s not everyday you find yourself just feet away from a such a powerful beast and live to tell, or post online, about it.
