Various videos frequently go viral on social media, garnering thousands and even millions of views. Often, these videos are shared by accounts with hundreds of thousands of followers, but sometimes a video from a lesser-known account suddenly gains traction.
That might be because the video contains an unusually clever trick or an incredibly cute animal. It could also be for the simple reason that the video is truly unbelievable.
That's exactly what happened with a video shared by TikTok user @brookesirah, who has fewer than 10,000 followers on the platform.
The video has been viewed more than 22 million times in just one day. Considering that @brookesirah's videos usually get only a few thousand views, it's incredible that this video received one million 'likes' in a single day.
When you watch the video, you'll understand why it's so captivating. The sight in the video is truly unbelievable.
According to the person who shared the video, the octopus let go and dove back into the depths shortly after the video ended.
