Have you seen the commercial for Shark Week for Discovery channel. You do know the one I’m talking about – with Snuffy the Seal? Snuffy has been in rehabilitation for an injury and is being released back into the wild and then OH NO!?!
I admit it. The first time I saw this commercial I didn’t realize that it was for the beginning of Shark Week. I was in my bedroom watching my television, behaving for a change. The commercial came on and I was all YAY for the recovery of the cute little seal. And then BAM! I made water run down my leg right there on my wee wee pad in my bedroom. Afterwards, I squealed, ran into the front room and snuggled with mommy shaking. She didn’t know what happened. She held me tight and soothed me down.
That’s when it happened again – the commercial came on the television in the front room. I started shaking again… until mom/dad started talking about Shark Week. Mommy explained to me it was just a commercial – I had nothing to fear. But I’m going to tell you – it does take you back.
I’m attaching the video. BE WARNED. If you are that strong to watch, what do you think? Shivers

Oh wow – that’s really tough. Maybe you shouldn’t watch TV alone, Bacon – you need a TV-ally :o)

I think so too. That was one scary commercial. And I was behaving in my room all by myself. Can you believe that? XOXO – Bacon

you need a pillowholder where you can hide your head when they show you scary things in tv :o)

That sounds awesome. I usually use mom’s lap but I was actually watching my own television in my room for a change. Being good and all innocent – and then BAM! What a commercial! XOXO – Bacon

I know right. That’s why I made water the first time I saw it by myself in my bedroom. I don’t think I *ever* want to go near the beach. This little piggy is scarred. AND to think mom/dad want to watch Shark Week – shivers. I don’t know how they do it and go to the beach. XOXO – Bacon

Oh my! Glad it was a commercial and not the real thing.

Exactly! Poor little Snuffy. Yep, it’s hard being a seal during Shark Week. Shivers to mergatroid! XOXO – Bacon

I couldn’t watch it again here. I’d seen it on TV, and was shocked, but hoping it really was only an ad. Bacon, I’m shaking along with you!

It was an ad – thank the piggy heavens. But the first time I watched it – holy moses! I was shocked. Mommy had to explain it to me. XOXO – Bacon

I did a bit of reading about it and apparently it wasn’t real and the seal is OK. Whew! Thank goodness.!

Thank goodness! It was scary! XOXO – Bacon

That commercial made a certain little pig go “Wee wee wee” (literally) all the way into his mommy’s arms. 😉
