Video: Shark Week Drama as They Attempt to Put a Camera on a Great White Dorsal Fin

Great white and the dingy - Lair of the Mega Shark (Shark Week)
I guess it just wouldn't be a proper Shark Week without barrels and barrels of drama heaped in a bucket and served in dingy.

In this segment from Lair of the Mega Shark, shark experts Jeff Kurr and Andy Casagrande attempt to put a camera on a great white while bobbing along in a little dingy. Or, as the scene is more enthusiastically explained in the Discovery narrative, the two are "in a small boat surrounded by giant great whites in this heart-pounding scene."

We do have to agree with the one guy on the boat who at the end of the video states, "I don't think this is such a brilliant #%&#@ idea you know...I don't think we can have a boat in there. I really don't."

Video posted by Discovery and is just over 2 minutes in length.
