*Disclaimer: No one in this video dies. I mean, they do eventually, just not in this video.
Upon first viewing, what stands out as scary in this video is the great white shark. It gets super close to the surfers, even darts at them before turning away. However, it doesn't seem like the second guy who the shark gets close to ever actually notices the big fish. To that guy, he's just out there surfing, having a ball without a care in the world beyond his idea-only startup (it's toothpaste you can swallow) and alleged passion for universal healthcare (at least that's what he says all over his Facebook). It's a no harm, no foul situation. To be fair to the surfer guy, that's probably what it's like whenever someone's surfing: sharks all over the place below the water, getting really close before swimming away because they're real smart or picky eaters or majestic or whatever people who go in the ocean would tell you to justify being around all that unknown scary stuff.
What's really scary about this video is the drone. These dudes can't even go out on the water without being stalked on by drones? Isn't water supposed to kill drones? At least sharks don't go on land. But drones go over the water? That's not fair. Sure, it's probably another one of their looks-like-he's-29-holy-shit-he's-43-years-old friends filming them, but still, they're in drone danger. Fortunately this drone didn't attack them or fall on them or anything like that, but if it weren't for this drone film, they would have never known about the shark. What if they saw this footage then had a heart attack and died? We don't know yet if chia seeds or acai berries don't actually just predispose surfer dudes to heart attacks, ticking time booms waiting to go off when the ocean-riding types finally experience stress for the first time in their lives. It'd be a hell of a way to die, and a sad, technological one at that.
That's why it's better to get killed by a shark than a drone. It's natural, respectable, and pretty frickin' cool, to be honest. After all, Steven Spielberg never made any movies about a bloodthirsty drone terrorizing an entire region. That is until someday when he does the Barack Obama biopic.
