Shaq was a basketball beast down low for the Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Lakers back in the day. Today, the same Shaquille O’Neal is going to go down low into an ocean to confront his fear of the only thing that could possibly make him quiver in his size 22 sneakers:
Well played Discovery Channel, well played.
The clever promo deserves praise, as does the added bonus that Shaq is a likeable person to NBA and non-NBA fans alike. He’s accomplished yet funny, personable and intelligent. You just wonder if the Discovery Channel crew will take the ultimate bait by inviting Charles Barkley to be a surprise cameo?
That would be great.
Shaq Shark Week starting Sunday, July 22 at 8 p.m. on the Discovery Channel.
There are so few words needed to describe what you’re about to see for the forthcoming “Shark Week” on The Discovery Channel. Please click the video below and get ready to have your mind blown.
I just wish I could’ve been in the meeting when this idea was pitched.
This is “Shark Week,” which has inspired today’s “Throwback Thursday.”
Sharks are powerfully majestic creatures, though we never want to be swimming in the ocean and see a fin hovering just above the water’s surface. But even as terrifying of a sight as that is, sometimes a story can have a similar effect. The video below is known as one of the greatest monologues in the history of cinema. The setting is rickety old boat, bobbing up and down in the middle of the ocean off the coast of a vacation town in the American northeast.
It’s real. It’s raw. It’s got a real bite to it.
Happy Throwback Thursday!
In honor of The Discovery Channel’s annual phenomenon known as “Shark Week,” today’s post will (of course) feature a shark-related video. Is it the teeth? The fins? The terrifying mystery of whether a shark is swimming beneath or around you in the ocean? Is it pure curiosity stemming from watching a movie by this guy named Steven Spielberg that practically scared everybody from swimming at beaches in the summertime?
Whatever the reason for tuning in is, it’s a fascinating time of year to safely observe and learn something new about the most feared (and possibly admired) predators in our oceans.
Take a Real Bite Out of This Week!
