Discovery Snaps Back At Syfy’s ‘Sharknado Week’ With Shark Week Promo: Video

One day after Syfy took a bite out of Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, announcing its first Sharknado Week,Discovery Channel returned the favor — releasing its first promo for 2014 Shark Week, which pokes run at Syfy’s Sharknado. In the video, a guy climbs out of a gimongous shark that looks suspiciously like the one out of which Sharknado star Ian Zierling climbed, rescuing a damsel who’d been swallowed whole by said beast. But Discovery’s shark-climber-outer trumps Zierling’s performance; he saves a baby seal — maybe the one swallowed by the shark in last year’s Shark week promo. Judge the winner for yourself:
