Shark Week Audition

Eko and Penny are kitchen sharks, through and through. We never feed them from the table, but they coast around the center island, eternally hopeful of discovering an unsuspecting crumb. We don’t countenance the behavior with any human food, but I figured there is another way to put my sharks
Eko and Penny are kitchen sharks, through and through. We never feed them from the table, but they coast around the center island, eternally hopeful of discovering an unsuspecting crumb. We don’t countenance the behavior with any human food, but I figured there is another way to put my sharks to good use. Discovery Channel’s Shark Week always stages reenactments and they must be looking for new actors about now. I have just the pups for the job.

Can they ominously stalk their prey? You bet.

Can they hunt with singular focus? No problem

Can they rise up with the crescendo of the JAWS theme ? Of course, they’re professionals

I mean, the realism here is second to none. Can you even tell this is not a real shark?

Ok, yeah, he may be a tad gentle, but we can work on the whole chomping thing

Not all sharks are Great Whites, so for those scenes where you need smaller sharks we’ve got you covered.

Ferocious

The Penny Shark hunts in shallower waters. What she lacks in size she makes up in speed 

She spies her prey

And pounces! TV viewers won’t be able to tell it’s not a real shark

The likeness is uncanny

So, Discovery Channel CEO-person, I guess there’s really only one question left at this point. When do we start?

Comments for Shark Week Audition

  1. Do you think Roy Schneider would be brave enough to meet this sharks in the next movie? … I made the noises of Jaws theme while reading… the pup ran away… either Easy fears the sharks or he dislikes my singing…

  2. Victoria says:

    The last photo is hilarious – is that a yawn!! or a ferocious shark bite! I love the creativity – maybe you can put a treat on your leg and have them go for it for your audition video -that might do the trick

  3. cathwhistler says:

    It’s so funny, I’ve listened to enough of your videos that I can hear your voice when I read the captions under the photos, and that is just as much a part of the humor as the the picture and caption! Great fun!

  4. Jesse says:

    This is awesome!

  5. Those doggies are exactly what Shark Week needs. “….We’re gonna need a higher counter….”

  6. Kismet says:

    Our small dogs can’t reach the counter so they’re catfish-bottom feeders who wait for something to fall.

  7. oh my gosh this made me smile, how did you get that fin attached to their heads. So cute. I love sharks.

  8. coastingnz says:

    Cathwhistler summed it up perfectly – I was so looking at these photos and “listening” to you doing the narrative – hilarious!

  9. Ha, ha…the JAWS theme will be in my head all day now and Penny will be the perp. 😉

  10. Emmadog says:

    You two are doing some awesome counter surfing. Nice work.

  11. Tietser says:

    Kitchen Sharks do not need to come in for audition. These photos are enough and have convinced me to make the documentary. The set will be altered somewhat: each Kitchen Shark will circle his/her own counter. Prey will be hidden from Kitchen Sharks but these pro’s will have no problem with this aspect because of their long and obvious experience as Kitchen Shark. We are very honoured to finally meet the Kitchen Sharks.
    Yours truly and with kind regards,
    “Discovery Channel Ceo person”

  12. Great fun reading this. Some imagination you’ve got there!

  13. Hey – shouldn’t there be TWO questions to ask that CEO? “When do we start?” is one of them but how about “What’s the salary?” ???????

  14. Love the use of velcro to attach the fin! That must have been Eko’s idea because I think he is the true brains of the operation 🙂
