YouTube Prankster Screams at Boat Captain, Suddenly Goes for Unexpected Swim
(Not a lot of us here at Conservative Tribune are viewers of YouTube prank videos, so when this story came across our radar as a fun little human interest piece, none of us knew that the “brat” here was Stephen Quire, auteur of the “Greatest Freakout Ever” series. Even though this video is a well-made fake, it still is a fake, and we apologize for not doing our due diligence with this one. We updated the headline of the article a few hours after publication to reflect the true nature of the video. — Ed. note)
If you’re a bratty teen and you’re going for a boat ride, here’s a good idea: Don’t rile the boat captain.
Unlike your parents, the captain probably isn’t going to indulge your ridiculousness. And when you get thrown out of a boat, it’s a bit different than being thrown out of a bar.
That’s the lesson from a viral video that’s been making the rounds on social media intermittently ever since being posted online seven years ago. The bratty kid clearly isn’t having a good day since he doesn’t want to feed the fishes, he wants to go fishing for them — which, one would assume, isn’t part of the tour.
The video begins with the cameraman saying that they’re on a Bahamas water tour and that “Steven’s been acting up all day.” The camera then focuses on the dumpster fire.
“I wanna catch them!” the whiny brat says. “I don’t care about feeding him.”
Someone, presumably his mother, tells him to sit down.
“No!” he shoots back. “Stop telling me to relax … I don’t want to sit down!”
The captain makes it clear that fishing isn’t going to happen.
“We paid to get on the boat, I’ll go fishing if I want,” Steven says.
“You want to look at the fishes or you want to swim with the fishes?” one of the boat captains says.
“I want to fish them. I don’t want to swim and I don’t want to look at them,” the brat continues.
Well, that wasn’t on the menu. This meeting of the minds continues even after Steven is told to sit down. At this point, pretty much everyone is laughing at his meltdown.
He even complains about the music: “I don’t want to listen to stupid reggae! Put on some rap!”
At this point, the captains get serious, telling him to behave himself. “No! I don’t want to behave myself!” Steven responds.
They then intimate that there’s no police around, which he interprets as a threat. This makes him more indignant. He asks how he’s going to leave the boat, at which point he’s flipped into the water.
“He pushed me! That bastard pushed me!” Steven can be heard screaming from the water.
Yes, yes he did. And those around him were laughing hysterically. I was laughing, too.

Bon voyage, Steven! Hope you enjoyed not fishing.
