Alessia Cara Scars To Your Beautiful
Left Shark Etsy Merch

One thing we've learned from our many years as internet aficionados: If you accidentally create a meme, DON'T try and make money from it; unless you want to become an example of the cringiest attempt at capitalism known to man. And if you really really really have to: a) do it fast, and b) do it well.

Unfortunately, nobody told any of this to Katy Perry or her marketing team. Which is why, over a month after her performance at the Super Bowl was overshadowed by a certain nervous shark who just wanted to make it as a dancer, Katy's official merch store now has a "Left Shark" section, which includes a pretty lame Left Shark t-shirt, and this... abomination.

Katy Perry Left Shark Onesie

Yup. Stylised as a "Belovesie" (did you know "onesie" is trademarked? Yeah no-one cares), this thing... exists.

Now you too can look absolutely nothing like the beloved dancing shark from the halftime performance, and instead a horrifying perversion of his image, all for the low, low price of $129.99! I'LL TAKE EIGHT.

Or not. Because unofficially, there are plenty of other, more worthwhile options available to show off your Left Shark Love. Perusing online craft store Etsy yields hundreds of results alone.

While most of these will probably all get cease-and-desists from Katy's people by the end of the month, with the $129.99 you could spend on that horrible thing above, you could buy:
