Julie Rossman's reaction to witnessing a pod of whales has gone viral on YouTube. / Getty Images/iStockphoto

Julie Rossman likes whales. No, she really likes whales.

The newest video going viral captures the 30-year-old Brooklyn-based designer's pure, unadulterated joy during a whale watching trip off the coast of Provincetown, Cape Cod, in August 2011.

"The breath of a whale, right here at 1 o'clock," Rossman begins in a calm voiceover, and then -"holy moly!" - her screams of glee begin as more than 20 whales break the surface of the ocean.

The rest of the rare natural occurrence is set to her gleeful exclamations.

"To see so many whales was just shocking. I sound like a fool - but it's such a lucky moment captured in real life," Rossman, a self-proclaimed animal lover, tells USA TODAY Network.

"When we were on the boat, there were only one or two before the huge pod. It was also a full moon, which apparently makes whales more likely to come up and make sound," she said.

Rossman's brush of Internet fame, including a shout-out from the "Double Rainbow" man himself, took three years of encouragement from friends. She says it would often come up in conversation, and they were convinced it would go viral.

"I was embarrassed, but the reaction is one of happiness and joy, so there's nothing to be ashamed of," she said.
