heh, that video made it worth while.

Pentegarn Jan 19th, 2009 05:18 AM

Seems it would work better is there were a way to anchor the ramps in place, like with good old fashioned suction cups.

Clayman Jan 19th, 2009 06:15 AM

I want a shark finger puppet...it just looks so adorable,and i can make it a good alarm clock by putting my phone into it so i cant turn it off in the morning...

Why oh why do we not have these gems in Europe D:

Doctor_Who Jan 19th, 2009 07:27 AM

I don't know why I'm laughing at this but I am :)

captain516 Jan 19th, 2009 12:34 PM

I bet if you used the Batmobile hot wheel, It'd be coated in Shark Repelent, causing the shark to explode.

DavidFullam Jan 19th, 2009 01:18 PM

You know what this needs? MANG LAVA!

Julio Jan 19th, 2009 01:27 PM

Hey -RoG-, Pentegarn is right. I was thinking that you had some little trouble with the ramps screwing some of the jumps because of how much they move when something bumps on them. I you were to tape them to the ground that might be of help.

Hah, gotta love how you want the powerful Shark to canniablize his card brethren.

Dimnos Jan 19th, 2009 01:43 PM

Man that video was the best part. lol

Kat Jan 19th, 2009 03:04 PM

You should feed him a zombie.

Yeah I'm sure it would've helped to some extent... but the fact that you can't even build up enough speed when trying to make the motorcycle move forward is pretty pathetic. But hey, at least you get a chomping shark out of the deal. You can never have too many chomping sharks in your life. Words to live by...

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...


CHEWS GUNS INTO SCRAP!

Slobulus has...jumped the shark?

darkvare Jan 19th, 2009 05:14 PM

i still have my street shark toy lol not the puppet though

robo_rob Jan 19th, 2009 05:55 PM

A pull back toy car probably would have made the jump. Not only for their speedy engines, but would weight a little more. Thus keeping the ramps in place better.

greenimp Jan 19th, 2009 06:19 PM

something about the way the shark just kept chomping while a range of incresingly random things crashed around it had me laughing like a hyena

STREET SHARKS?! Oh god how I loved Street Sharks when I was a lad. Thanks so much Rog, I almost completely forgot about those beauties.

The cartoon was pure genius...

Nick Jan 19th, 2009 08:53 PM

I remember those Street Sharks. They were pretty awesome.

Julio Jan 19th, 2009 10:45 PM

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

Tetsu Deinonychus Jan 19th, 2009 11:34 PM

At least it was worth buying for the shark.

You ought to try putting it on the floor and jumping over it, yourself.

excuse me but i believe the correct term is JAWSOME :rolleyes

hisholiness Jan 20th, 2009 02:23 AM

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!!!

Viteh Jan 20th, 2009 02:47 AM

Maybe if you take the motorcycle guy and give it an "Evil Knievel" paint job...

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.

LittleDollClaudia Jan 20th, 2009 04:36 AM

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.

Commanderraf Jan 20th, 2009 11:05 AM

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...

Angryhydralisk Jan 20th, 2009 11:09 AM

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.

Kilgore Cod Jan 22nd, 2009 11:43 AM

Its like its saying "feed meeee"

Protoclown Jan 22nd, 2009 09:47 PM

Haha, nice video. What a piece of shit toy!

What was that music you were listening to? It didn't sound like your kind of thing, so that struck me kind of weird.

Tadao Jan 22nd, 2009 10:01 PM

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

Jesse S. Jan 22nd, 2009 10:33 PM

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

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.

Tanuki Jan 23rd, 2009 07:50 AM

"Om nom nom nom"

EchoCharlie Jan 26th, 2009 02:33 AM

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...
;-)

EchoCharlie Jan 26th, 2009 02:40 AM

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.

Captain PirateFace Feb 2nd, 2009 04:38 PM

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.

sonicteam3000 Feb 22nd, 2009 05:14 PM

WOW roger...nice.........that was awesome!!!!!!! good job

sonicteam3000 Feb 27th, 2009 09:18 PM

Babs Mar 1st, 2009 11:32 PM

ZeldaQueen Jul 28th, 2009 11:29 PM

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!
