ZeldaQueen Yeah, the ramps look like they're made out of pretty cheap plastic. You need something to hold them down.

Just call in a couple of friends to keep 'em steady. Then you can proudly say that you made homocidal shark jumping a group activity.

And Street Sharks rocked!

Captain PirateFace I work for the school district in Las Vegas as Campus Security at a Behavioral School (Kids sent for drugs, weapons and violence) and I am sitting in my office and then watch the video that is included with the article and started laughing my ass off like a madman... so damn funny. My boss (the Principle) came over and asked me if I was alright.. I told him no.

2nd, while watching the end of this video I was thinking to myself.. you know some sick bastard is going to try and have sex with this toy at some point. I know F'd up but what can I say it just popped into my head.

EchoCharlie Oh yeah - can someone get the latest Indiana Jones movie on DVD and shoot some footage of it attempting the perilous stunt. Maybe posting that will give them the hint.

EchoCharlie So does anyone else here think the last bit missing the sharks head looked like Domo-Kun from "Domo-Kun's Angry Smashfest!" doing jumping jacks in a pit? No? Just me then...

It's something I inserted into the video actually... "Deepest Bluest (Shark's Fin)" by LL Cool J from the mega-cheesy shark movie, Deep Blue Sea. It's one of my all-time favorite rap songs because the lyrics are so hilariously bad it kills me every time I hear them.
Manmade terror
Hungry jaws of death
Y'all don't cross my depths
I'll pause your breaths
I cause you to sink down forty thousand leagues
Bleeding to death with no arms and short sleeves
My world's deep blue
Killers gotta eat too
Looking for human flesh to rip my teeth through
Other fish in the sea but Barracudas ain't equal
To a half human predator created by a needle
Jet black eyes baby they stare while you sleep
When your Titanic sinks I'm the one you gon' meet
Hearing terrified screams they surround my team
All you see is trails of blood
Even God won't intervene
Nightmares of darkness
My appetite is heartless
Even if we related, you eliminated regardless
In the deep blue, underwater walls
Half man, half shark
My jaws don't fall
Deepest... Bluest... my hat is like a shark's fin!
And that, my friend, is why the music was included in the shark jump video.

Jesse S. Kinda does make a person wonder just what the hell the manufacturers of this one were smoking.

Tadao Lol, he's been hanging out too close to Compton.

If you really want a shark puppet, I'd recommend looking into the old 90's hand puppet toyline called "Street Sharks".
As you can see below, they were pretty badass...

holy crapcycle!
i had one of those...damn i probably still have it actually...
I collect plush sharks myself at the moment,try to pick one up when ever i go somewhere (latest one is a 20inch chomper from Barcelona)

Angryhydralisk That video made my day, especially when you threw the motorcycle guy in the shark's mouth. OHM NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM.

Great article.

Commanderraf Hey Rog, where you wearing yout AWESOME shirt with the Shark for this perilous demonstration? (Thanks to you and your article on "Over the Top" everytime I see that part of the film I want a shirt like that).

And on the subject of toys jumping the shark, on this side of the border retailers got their hands on about a million containers of this foul toy:

http://z.about.com/d/toys/1/0/f/O/OperationHulk_001.jpg (Interesting, I can neither add links nor images.)

Why would Hulk be happy? Why would he need an operation? Since when Spider Man and Iron Man are qualified surgeons?

Everytime I see this toy I rage so hard...

Jan 20th, 2009 04:36 AM
LittleDollClaudia Oh wow, the video was damn hilarious. I want to get one of those and make a Jaws mini feature.

Or hey, maybe recreate that incredible moment on Happy Days except that Fonz gets eaten by the shark. On film, of course with body parts and fake blood oozing everywhere.

It may be a cheap toy, but it's still a deadly one and I'm not sure if I could make such a monumental leap over the shark.
Jan 20th, 2009 02:47 AM
Viteh Maybe if you take the motorcycle guy and give it an "Evil Knievel" paint job...
Jan 20th, 2009 02:23 AM
hisholiness Was that Domokun under the shark? Damn Target is milking that campaign for everything its worth! Oh and i'm glad to see in these tough economic times that RoG can find low cost entertainment to provide us with. That is "Change" i can believe in!!!

Tetsu Deinonychus At least it was worth buying for the shark.

Julio Feeding your chomping shark a miniature rifle might emulate the effect... Turn them into scrap!
