This Ridiculous Video Slipped Through The Cracks While We Waited For A Prime Minister

Yes, it does involve a jumping shark.

While the rest of the nation was voting, and then waiting, and waiting for the next Prime Minister to be announced on Saturday this ridiculous video of a jumping shark went viral.

The footage is almost as mind-blowing as the non-election outcome so we thought we'd put it out there for anyone who missed it. And let's be real, there's time for a few of these as we wait for postal votes to determine the fate of the next government.

The footage was taken by Perth man Jake Beazley 10 miles out from Point Peron in Western Australia where the group were fishing in water just 35 metres deep.

Beazley said the shark jumped out of the water three times before it disappeared, but he only caught the final jump on camera.

If only the election outcome was as crystal clear as that WA water.
