We’re Rooting for the Octopus Trying to Steal This Guy’s Selfie Stick and GoPro

Even an octopus totally hates your selfie stick.

Let’s face it, from the point of their creation, is there any invention that is more loathed than the selfie stick? None you can think of? Yeah, we thought the same thing.

So when this guy uses one to stick a GoPro in an octopus’ face, its reaction is totally understandable. The ensuing tug-of-war goes on for quite a while!

This video is priceless:

This footage was shot in Spain by Andries Bik. Even though one would never think it, octopuses are actually much more intelligent than they are often given credit for. Last summer one engineered a daring escape to the open ocean from a New Zealand aquarium.

This octopus was just doing what we’re all thinking every time we see someone using one of these things, right? I don’t think this guy will underestimate an octopus like that again any time soon!
