JOHANNESBURG - While the Bokke celebrate their Rugby World Cup victory with the rest of South Africa, a certain Beluga Whale near the South Pole also wants in on the action.

WATCH: A whale of a time in Durban

In a viral video posted on Facebook on Thursday, an insufferably cute and friendly wild Beluga Whale is seen playing a bit of fetch with a rugby ball.

Alon Kowen says on his post: "Beluga Whale celebrating the Springboks victory somewhere close to the South Pole! Spot the Cape Town build Gemini Craft and the South African accents!

The whale can be seen eagerly swimming up to the boat and waiting for the ball to be thrown, so he or she can collect the ball and give it back.

The people on the boat, believed to be a group of South African's are not shy about entertaining the playful aquatic mammal, despite the freezing conditions at the South Pole.
