After shark attacks plagued the Outer Banks of North Carolina in the last few weeks, the Bergmans thought of an interesting way to quell the possibility of further attacks.
Using PVC pipes, Scott and Sandi Bergman made protective cages that they then painted silver to look like steel.
Beachgoer M.K. Rainville remembers watching the two casually walk into the ocean with their homemade shark-protectors.
“We first knew something was up when the wife was taking photos of her husband with the cage and then proceeded to take a video,” Rainville told WTVR.
A video of the event has since been uploaded to YouTube, and currently has just over 950,000 views.
In it, the two are shown taking on the wavy waters, while hoisting the ‘steel’ cages above their knees.
The couple are then seen getting a few feet away from shore, but are they quickly called back to shore by a confused-looking lifeguard.
It has since been revealed that the entire operation was a prank.
