Monday, July 7, 2014, 10:48 AM - A shark attack at a local aquarium is certainly nothing to laugh at.

Scaring a grandmother and catching it all on camera however, is a prank her grandchildren will always remember.

The woman is being filmed at the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C. where her grandchildren encourage her to touch a computer screen imitating a glass panel of a shark tank.

"Keep touching the glass," you can hear them saying, knowing that a "shark" behind the glass is lurking.

All of a sudden a huge Great White smashes through the glass, sending grandma falling down backwards onto the floor in shock.

Fortunately, she took the whole prank in good humour telling her family they scared the life out of her.

The shark is part of the 'Exquisitely Evil: 50 Years of Bond Villains' exhibit at the International Spy Museum.

Since the video was posted on YouTube on June 25, it has already picked up more than 1.8 million views.
