Suffice to say, this whale watching tour got a leeeeettle too close to its subject. What happens next is probably the most painful, greatest travel story this girl will ever have.
While on tour with the Live Different Academy in the Baja Peninsula, Chelsea, for reasons that have not been shared in the YouTube description, decided to turn her back on one of the largest animals that’s ever lived on our planet as it loomed ever closer. Our whale friend, sensing its opportunity to touch the funny little human, chose this moment to “pet” Chelsea with the force of a collapsing bunk bed.
Keep watching for the slo-mo version and Chelsea’s cartoon head-wobble reaction.
Chelsea’s fine, by the way.
