The video shows the tentacled creature desperately trying to escape what seems like a fishing boat. "He can't get through that", a voice exclaims in the video. "You are wrong my friend", says the person shooting the video. The determined Octopus successfully slides out of a narrow gap and drops into the ocean as the people on the boat watch in absolute shock.

The video was shot by Chance Miller, a fisherman from Alaska which is where the video was reportedly taken.
The Octopus amazed social media with its contortion skills. "I guess there's no point in eating it, it would find a way to get out of your stomach.", said a comment on YouTube.
"This is so clearly staged. That's not an octopus. That's a midget Chinese contortionist in a morph suit", said a Redditor.
The creepiest flashback Friday ever!
