Whale Becomes Viral Star After Slapping Girl In Face With Fin [VIDEO]

Over a million people have tuned in to this hot new viral vid that just dropped on YouTube, showing a tourist on a boat taking a fluke to the face. Basically, the whale tale (researchers believe the animal’s appendage was named after the part of a girl’s thong underwear that hangs out of her jeans) comes out of the water and clocks 19-year-old Canadian Chelsea Crawford while she is on a whale watching expedition down in Mexico.

I guess you could say she’s got a whale of a tale to tell her friends and the video evidence — captured by a friend — to back it up.
