What do a group of South African rugby fans and a beluga whale near the South Pole have in common? They both love rugby, apparently.

On Wednesday, a video surfaced showing a beluga whale playing fetch with a group of South African rugby fans as they were sailing by.

“Beluga Whale celebrating the Springboks victory somewhere close to the South Pole!” Alan Kowen wrote on the original post.

Beluga whales are known for being playful and interacting well with humans. Apparently that trait extends well beyond the beluga whales at waterparks.
