Seeing gators swimming directly at you triggers that innate survival response where your brain tells your body to haul ass out of there if you want to live. And that’s the exact response we see from all of these people who get trolled to the point of panic when this guy attaches a remote controlled boat to an alligator head.
When gators are swimming the only parts of the body you see are the head and the tail. When they’re sitting in the water you typically only see the head. So this is actually pretty terrifying in how realistic it is as a prank.
This may go a bit too far. What do you think?
