(KPLR) – With friends like these, ho needs enemies.  A new YouTube video shows a prank where friends push a surfer into the water, directly in front of an oncoming shark.

The man's friends laugh as he struggled to pull himself back into the boat.

The victim apparently thought it was funny too, saying he had to punch the shark to keep it away.

The video's poster says it happened off the coast of Ireland and it was reportedly a harmless Basking Shark which is gentle and only feeds on Plankton.
