4. Jokeroo is the name of the guy who posted it
I kind of think it is fake. I don't know how he did it, but it doesn't seem right to me.

7. That one's floated around for a while on diving and surfing sites - it's definitely real
The shark looks too small to be at the mammal-eating point however, so the filmer wasn't in any significant danger, although I'm sure it felt that way.

Really an awesome experience for the guy - I'm kind of jealous...
