Is that the one where the killer whale grabs him seconds after he is released?

This has been around and posted so many times on so many websites that it isn't even a curiosity any more.

The darn thing has been embedded in no less than 7 gmails from different "friends" over the last 3 weeks or so. Some of the "forwarded to" headers take longer to read than the clip itself.

I haven't seen it before either. I can see how it gets old quick, though. Certainly not the same staying power as Grumpy Cat.

I've seen it over & over on TV and my daughters get more & more upset every time they see it.

Well, Aztec, I hope you are proud of your girls both for their natural compassion and for their choice of TV viewing. I take it they are regular viewers of the Discovery Channel!

Yes and after about the 10th time, I gave up on telling them, "I'm pretty sure that wasn't real."

They do, however, like these:
