It’s very rare that you can call something “terrifying” and “awesome” in the same breath!

The Seattle Aquarium recently had a moment there go viral when a Giant Octopus tried to escape its tank and was THIS CLOSE to succeeding!

And the whole thing was caught on camera and the footage will scare the ink out of anybody who watches it!

A spokesperson for the aquarium says the video has been “blown out of proportion”! Here’s what Tim Kuniholm said:

“It’s a new octopus Ink in a new exhibit exploring his boundaries. In the video that’s been shared by the public it’s one of our staff members helping Ink bank into his exhibit after exploring the edge.”

The Seattle Aquarium is renowned for its work with the Giant Pacific Octopus species. They do work with them on the regular and later return them back to the ocean, which we’re assuming will be the case for this octopus internet star!

And from the look of things we’re thinking Ink is giving us more than an inkling that the octopus wants to leave the tank its in and return to the ocean ASAP and lay waste to anything in its path!!

Check out the terrifying slash amazing video (below) !!!
