    Shark Week ?

    Advertisements
    I'm watching Street Outlaws on Discovery, and they just ran an ad for Shark Week.

    It's set to some flippin' cheery Christmas song. (I'll think of it eventually - it's the happ-happiest time, of the year .)

    In light of the two shark attacks in NC yesterday, should they maybe reconsider running that?

    Or am I just being too sensitive?

    No, I don't think think they should pull the ads but maybe they should reconsider the song choice if they get a lot of backlash from it. Is Shark Week the same week every year? I feel like that's just really unfortunate timing

    I'm just waiting for Sharknado 3. I have Sharknado leggings. Shark week has become a joke, it's nothing like what it was when I was growing up. I remember Jaques Cousteau documentaries and stuff, now they play a bunch of cheesy shark movies (Ghost Shark is a good one and Sandshark(s) is like tremors meets sharks and so ridiculous it's amazing) and it's pretty "Meh."

    Eh I think it's fine. Unfortunate timing for sure but I don't find it insensitive or offensive at all.

    No, the ad is fine. I'm sorry those kids got attacked, but Shark Week is usually scheduled around the same time every year. They've probably had this planned for quite sometime. I love Shark Week, I've watched it since I was little.

    It is unfortunate that those kids got attacked and all, but this is something they do every year. They can't be expected to take it off of the air because of an attack. That is kind of unfair to them.

    This seems like one of those "shit happens" things in regards to the timing. I feel awful for those kids, but if we catered shows around every tragedy that happened, most shows wouldn't even be on the air.
