The first ad of the season promoting “Shark Week” has a fake news station covering the return to the sea of “Snuffy” a rehabilitated seal.
If you’ve ever tuned into Shark Week, you’re aware that sharks like to eat seals. What better way to advertise the channel’s most popular week of programming than to show a seal and a hungry shark?
Here’s the sad, touching and absolutely hilarious (am I being insensitive?) story of “Snuffy The Seal”.

I've been an emotional basket case ever since I saw that shark kill Snuffy the Seal.—

Just saw the Snuffy the Seal commercial. Advertising genius at its finest.—
