You are a master of understatement. The guys at the elevator and the cat at the fish bowl reactions were priceless. I haven't laughed that hard in years.

Thanks for posting!

The shark would scare the daylights out of my 3 year old :)

Edit: Toys 'R Us carries them. $49:

What you didnt hear was the sound of them ..that would probably give the game away ..

but, i see a use for them ..gutter inspection ..they look almost safer to use ..placid and harmless..even in amateurs hands...than a helicopter device ..miles better than a god forbid strimmer (weed wacker) engined helicopter device that someone suggested the other day.

all the best.markj

Nice find. I gotta get one of those. The wife has an irrational fear of sharks, and it would be great to hover it above her bed as she sleeps off a nightshift. I wonder if it would handle the weight of a gopro camera to catch the reaction as she wakes up to an "airshark" 2" from her face. :D

Gotta have one of those. No question at all.

That sure is a well done advertising video.

LOL! You have an odd idea of fun -- you should jump into the "What not to say to your Wife" thread :)

I liked that the guy walking behind controlling the fish was dressed in scuba gear. It brings up the question - do they do a mermaid version ?

Yes - the Mermaid one is a blowup doll.

Good bye Dan, is been nice having you here :rolleyes: , when are you planing to have your funereal.

Your wife should get off with justifiable homicide, & there's a stack of guys on here to testify she suffered extreme mental cruelty. :mad:

she'll just get me back with a giant inflatable spider. She has her fear of sharks, I have my fear of spiders. all very normal i assure you.....

This would have worked a lot better if we still lived in the condo. I used to do the SNL "land shark" skit when i forgot my keys and the door locked behind me. Would work a lot better with a "real" shark.
