If you are one of the 13 million people who has seen the viral video this week of Adult Film star Molly Cavalli being supposedly “attacked” by a shark off the coast of Florida, this may come as a surprise but local experts are now claiming that the video is fake.
“It’s a hundred percent fake,” said Bryce Roher with Florida Shark Diving. “We were contacted by a film production company to film a fake shark bite in order for the story to go viral”
And boy did the video go viral, being featured in major online publications all over the world and the video being shared millions of times on social media.
Roher wanted no part of the project after they described details of how the shark bite should look.
“They texted us in detail how they wanted the to pose a shark bite,” Roher said.
Sadly this attempt to cash in on the “danger” of sharks is likely to cause yet another backlash, public hysteria, and calls for more culling of sharks.
Despite the actress being in a cage which would make a shark bite nearly impossible, and the fact you can see divers swimming around outside the cage (including the camera person), a lot of people will fall for the elaborate stunt being used to promote the actress and the camera technology
Sharks are vital to the health of the oceans, we are killing over 100 million sharks every year which could cause 20 species of shark to go extinct by the end of 2017.
