Shark With Frickin' Laser Pointer
It's a laser pointer... mounted on a frickin' shark! How awesome is that!? We're sure Dr. Evil would approve.
And really, what would make a better laser pointer? Not much.
Of course they're great for playing with cats and making them run up walls and such too. Oh sure, they can be used for boring things like keynote speeches and presentations, but the vast majority of laser pointer usage is for playing with cats. In fact it's actually 87% of all laser pointer usage. (This stat is not verified and we did zero research to arrive at that number. But just try and prove us wrong.)
And just about 15 years after the 1st Austin powers movie, we can look back and see that it's still funny! It was groundbreaking and weird at the time, and sure Mike Myers had his misses to (*cough* The Love guru *cough*) but Austin Powers was awesome. And sure, by the 3rd Goldmember movie it was kind of rehashing things, but there was still a lot of humor value in it.
Here's a quote from the Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery that introduced the concept of the shark with lasers:
You know, I have one simple request. And that is to have sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads! Now evidently my cycloptic colleague informs me that that cannot be done. Ah, would you remind me what I pay you people for, honestly? Throw me a bone here! What do we have?
And in the 3rd movie, Dr. Evil's son Scott finally wins over his dad by giving him what he always wanted - Sharks with frickin' lasers on their heads:
Dr. Evil: Are those sharks with laser beams attached to their heads?
Scott Evil: [nods]
Dr. Evil: Cool! You mean that I actually have frickin' sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their frickin' heads?
It's a pretty damn evil laser pointer is all we're saying. (And it doesn't cost anywhere near one million dollars.)
