Shark Surfing is No Bull

Just in time for Shark Week comes the newest fake extreme sport: “Shark Surfing,” in support of the new AMP Energy “No Bull. Just Energy.” campaign. In the video, extreme sport enthusiasts Josh and Damien are back to take on a second over-hyped sport. While the guys attempt to tame sharks on the high seas, MMA champion and long-time AMP Energy athlete Urijah Faber makes a special guest appearance and looks on at this new sport in disbelief.

The brand recently launched its new campaign with a two-part video series introducing the fake extreme sport, Full Contact Skydiving, which had America buzzing about whether or not the new sport was real or fake. The brand then revealed that Full Contact Skydiving was in fact a made-up sport via a second video, letting consumers know that they shouldn’t buy the hype if they are looking for real energy from an energy drink. The two videos combined generated over 2.5 million views.

Shark Surfing is yet another reminder that while other energy drink brands focus on hype and extreme activities, AMP Energy is all about providing real energy without the hype. Check out the latest video below:

The Light from the TV Shows: A Chat with Dick Cavett

Dick Cavett steps out of the elevator, hangs a right, and strolls into the lobby of the Beverly Hilton, a man on a mission: to participate in the promotion of a PBS documentary which premieres on August 8 at 9 PM EST/PST: Dick Cavett’s Watergate, an examination of the Watergate scandal and its effects on Richard Nixon’s presidency that’s structured around archival clips from Cavett’s late night talk show.

After introducing himself, Cavett can’t resist making an observation about the familiarity of his surroundings: “You know, this is the same lobby where I stood when I was out here for two weeks auditioning to be a writer on The Jack Paar Show.” As has been the case for Cavett on more than few occasions during the course of his half-century (and then some) in the TV business, this observation proves to be only the first sentence of an anecdote.

“I came into the hotel one night and I heard singing,” continued Cavett, glancing and vaguely gesturing at the entrance to a nearby ballroom. “I opened a big door, and Judy Garland was onstage. The lights came on, and there were George Burns, Jack Benny, Edward G. Robinson, Barbara Stanwyck, Kirk Douglas, and about a hundred more. It was a huge charity thing. You couldn’t see any face that you didn’t know!”

With this brief recollection, Cavett immediately confirms that at least one of his lines during his memorable appearance on The Simpsons was absolutely spot-on: he really does have some wonderful stories about famous people that involve him in some way.

Who came up with the idea of viewing the Watergate scandal through the prism of your show?

You know, I think (executive producer Robert S.) Bader did. I’m almost certain he did. Yeah, he’s the one who’s most up on tapes that I had and stuff like that, so I don’t think it could’ve been anyone else. He just went through the stuff. I think initially he looked at 350 Cavett shows to make the (Shout Factory) DVDs, and then he just finally had to stop looking at them and start making them! But I was stunned to find how much stuff we have. It’s going to be a strain to make it only an hour. There’s so much good stuff. That’s a luxury, because there are so many shows that are a strain to make even an hour.
