Video: Shark Devours Man, Blame Snickers

Snickers Shark Week commercial
With all the controversy surrounding this year's Discovery Channel's Shark Week, it's time to take a step back and look at one of the funniest moments from the week.  If you watched Shark Week using a DVR, there's a good chance you missed it since it was actually a Snickers candy bar commercial.

Did you ever wonder about the taste pallet of a shark?  If so, it seems Snickers has the answer for us.  It's all about chocolate and peanut butter.

After reviewing some of the comments on the video, I'd say the vast majority of viewers felt the commercial was hilarious but there were a few who felt it was perpetuating the belief that shark are pure man-eaters.  But c'mon, let's give the candy company a break, after nearly a week of Discovery telling stories about serial killer sharks and boat eating megalodon sharks, Snickers should be allowed to have a little fun.

The commercial is 32 seconds:
