In the background are the voices of strangely disinterested onlookers. A voice can be heard saying, “Uh-oh,” in a singsong tone when things start going wrong. Another says, “Oh, my God,” as if he’s not actually present but watching another YouTube shark video at his desk. “Is anybody in there?” asks someone else, as if he’s talking about a bathroom stall rather than a shark cage. It’s all extremely weird. The dissociation of the onlookers is, in its own way, as terrifying as what may be going on in the shark cage. There’s something in their voices implying that their chief worry is not whether a man is being eaten alive, but whether this means the boat will be late returning to the dock, which could seriously screw up their dinner reservations.
