Karl Stromberg was a James Bond villain who in “The Spy Who Loved Me” dropped 007 into a shark tank. It wasn’t the webbed-fingered villain in the Bond-themed museum exhibit that had a grandma falling on the floor in shock though in a recent viral video: It was her very own prankster family.
As the grandma made her way though the International Spy Museum’s exhibit about James Bond villains, she came upon the shark tank emulating the scene from the 1977 film and her family was waiting for her.
Many aquariums kindly ask that visitors not touch or tap the glass, and the Washington, D.C., museum’s trick might show why.
“Keep touching,” they encouraged her.

Since being posted on YouTube on June 25, “Shark Attack on Grandma,” which features a realistic-looking but digital shark, has gotten more than 1.7 million hits.
“That scared the crap out of me,” the grandma said.
Though everyone was laughing and Grandma seemed in good spirits afterward, it does appear that someone got a good-humored slap at the end for pulling the prank.
