Mick Fanning One Lucky Bastard

There is nothing like live TV to capture your worst nightmare. Aussie legend Mick Fanning was attacked by a shark during a South African surfing event as the cameras were on him. Fortunately he was able to Chuck Norris the beast.

    Yeah, Mike Fanning was pretty cool here and I’m glad he was okay. The shark, on the other hand, has no screen presence whatever. He completely fluffed his entrance, timing it so poorly that he was out of shot behind a wave for most of the clip. Where were the menacing eyes? Where were the gaping jaws? A very poor performance, I’m afraid. (Verdict: * out of ****)

    • I agree, a total let down by the shark. Maybe he got stage fright? Live TV and all….

      Wasn’t totally impressed with Fannings’ swimming efforts either. Looked rather too casual for my liking.

      • He was flapping around like a tit, and the shark, well that brief encounter was a big flop… I am pleased that he was not bitten though 🙂

    as Mike was pulled into the drink
    No blood was lost no trunks striped
    if it be me pants would have been (Sh**)

  3. YEAh I believe attacking from behind is a cowardly act. Shame on ya shark you deserved that punch.
