Best title ever?
We know what you’re thinking and yes, you saw that right: A whale just shot a rainbow out of its blowhole. A rainbow.
While the video is from 2011, it’s still full of awesome.
According to YouTube user rsean9000, the double-take-worthy incident occurred while on a whale watching cruise off Nova Scotia.
“It was not until I watched the video much later that I saw the spray of the whale closest to the boat catch the sun and turn the spray into a rainbow,” rsean9000 said in the video’s info section. “It looks as if the whale is blowing a rainbow out of it’s blowhole.”
The crazy moment harks back to some amazing whale footage from last year in which a humpback whale danced for miles after boaters saved it from a being tangled in nylon netting.
As the video documents, the crew worked for more than an hour to free the whale and save it from drowning.
