Here’s a tip for everyone: Don’t tap the looking glass in aquariums, it distresses the animal inside.
A visitor to the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., didn't pay attention to this rule, though. He also seemed to have forgotten that the museum he was visiting is dedicated to spies presumably playing tricks on each other.
The display, according to The Huffington Post, is part of an exhibit called “Earth Redesigned.”
"The show includes the vision of fictional character Karl Stromberg of the James Bond book and film 'The Spy Who Loved Me,'" the Post reports. "And his ideas about a post-apocalyptic war world beneath the sea."
The video of the visitor shows him cautiously tapping the glass. As nothing happens, he is emboldened and taps the glass with a little more force. And that proves to be his undoing.
This is apparently a very common prank played on visitors, as the YouTube videos attest.
