Funny or Die brings Sharklumbo to life in this parody starring Kevin Pollak (and his excellent Peter Falk impersonation).
TV is a little shark-crazy right now, with Shark Week and Sharknado 2 (and soon to be Sharknado 3)... and Funny or Die's Sharklumbo fits perfectly into the sharkstravaganza. The premise is simple: "It's a shark. And it's also Peter Falk as Columbo."
Basic? Yes. But it's more justification than we had for this week's Discovery Channel slate of Sharkzilla, Sharkpocalypse, Sharkageddon, and Sharksanity, so why not roll with it? Sure, it's ridiculous (and a bit gory, in a fake CGI kind of way), but it's the sort of ridiculous that we love -- plus Kevin Pollak's great Peter Falk impersonation holds the entire thing together and, surprisingly, even gives it a sort of heart. Though in the world of Sharklumbo, that heart's probably soon to be eaten by a shark.
