Finally, a Shark With a Laser

Relax, Dr Evil. Your inspired request for “sharks with frickin’ laser beams attached” has finally been fulfilled in the real world.

Marine biologist-cum-TV personality Luke Tipple attached a 50-milliwatt green laser to a lemon shark off the coast of the Bahamas in late April. The escapade was sponsored by Wicked Lasers, a consumer-focused laser manufacturer based in Hong Kong that produces some of the most brilliant — and potentially dangerous — handheld lasers in the world.

Looks totally fake. I have those same lens flairs filters on PS.

Also it says it was a 50mW Krypton. I wasnt aware they sold 50mW Kryptons.



It says hes holding it here.

Sure dont look long enough to be a Krypton.

I call shenanigans.

"I really don’t care. It was a low-powered laser that couldn’t be dangerous to anyone, and there’s actually useful applications in having a laser attached to the animal.”
Really?

I'm no expert on sharks, but seeing as they wouldn't normally have things clipped to their dorsal fins, I would think they'd notice, and try to take a chunk out of whatever it was?

Any cat/dog I've seen with even a peg clipped to their fur tried to get it off fast.

Relax, Dr Evil. Your inspired request for “sharks with frickin’ laser beams attached” has finally been fulfilled in the real world.
Also very sure Dr. Evil wanted sharks with freaking laser beams on their heads
