I'm tremendously excited about virtual reality's potential. We'll be able to visit far-off worlds and have experiences that haven't even been dreamed up yet! If I was making a top ten list of things I wanted to better understand through VR, however, a shark attack wouldn't be on it.

As part of a promotion for Samsung's Gear VR, the company filmed sharks underwater and asked a bunch of unsuspecting humans to have a little fun under the sea. Most of the footage is calm, serene, and allows you to interact with a place most of us will never visit. It's peaceful.

The whole thing takes a nasty turn towards the end, though.


Maybe you're actually the worst, VR.
