The video, posted by the group Spotted in Victoria, shows the unidentified woman after she's told she was too late to board the ferry even though it hadn't left yet.
"We're at 400,000 views now on the video. The post itself has reached up to 800,000 people," said Austin Singhera, of Spotted in Victoria.
Singhera and friend Pavitar Sidhu are university students who started the Facebook page Spotted in Victoria last year.
"She may have been going to a party. We're not sure. This was on New Year's Eve, so she was maybe coming back to Victoria for a party or a get-together or something, but she'd missed it by three minutes," said Singhera.
He said they've never seen this type of reaction to anything they've posted.
"Obviously, it's something that people found funny or found interesting so they shared it with a lot of their friends and it's just the power of social media now. We never thought something like this could be possible," said Singhera.
