Seal slaps man in the face with an octopus

Kyle Mulinder was kayaking off the coast of New Zealand's South Island with a group of GoPro content creators, Time reports, when the seal emerged from the depths and hurled an octopus into his head.

As the pair sat in a two-man kayak, a blazing blue sky above them, Mr Masuda noticed movement in the water below them.

Mulinder was generally minding his own business when he spotted a massive seal fighting an octopus just below the surface of the water.

"I'm not sure who got more of a surprise the seal, the octopus or me".

The seal threw the octopus into the air, smacking Mulinder square in the face.

Meghan Markle Shuts Her Car Door, Stirs Debate On Breaking Royal Protocol
Social media lit up with those who wanted to have their say on the matter, and opinions were mixed and often humorous. Whether her security is quicker to shut the door for her after this remains to be seen.

"We were just sitting out in the middle of the ocean and then this huge male seal appeared with an octopus and he was thrashing him about for ages", Mulinder tells Yahoo.

At the end of the clip, Mulinder can be heard letting out a defiant roar amid a raucous response from his peers.

Fellow UPROXX writer and all-around comedy genius Mark C. Stevens posed an important question, one that we will be asking ourselves for years to come: "Would you say the kayaker got a kiss from a rose on the (wave)?"

The video shows a slightly stunned Mulinder after the quick face beating.

According to Mulinder, the octopus managed to escape being the seal's dinner as it latched onto the end of the kayak while the seal went on to search for other, less hard food.
