Super Bowl insiders reveal the genesis of Left Shark

Stashed in: @katyperry, Superbowl!, Left Sharks!

Hamilton says the Left Shark was inspired by a Scissor Sisters performance at the 2005 Brit Awards, which he directed. The group played “Take Your Mama” in front of a surreal farm yard complete with glittery chicken eggs, a talking barn, and massive bird-like puppets. “We were trying to work out how we could bring a beach scene to life and so one of the references that we looked at was that Scissor Sisters’ performance. The genesis of the Left Shark was actually a singing melon.”

A singing melon?!

It's on! says Chris Martin.

It's on what? He will feature Left Shark too?

I did enjoy this Chris Martin James Corden clip:

I would so love to see Left Shark again.  He really endeared himself to the audience.  :)

He did!

They're bringing Beyoncé and Bruno Mars back for Super Bowl 50 so maybe they'll bring him back too.

Left Shark should become the universal Super Bowl mascot! 

I'd like to see that, Geege. I think a lot of people would!
