Blah, blah, blah, New England Patriots—the real winners of Super Bowl XLIX were Katy Perry‘s backup dancer sharks. They were only in the spotlight for a few glorious minutes, but they’ll be in our hearts forever. Even better, they may soon be in our wardrobes, too.

Online clothier Bonobos turned a spur-of-the-moment Super Bowl joke into a full-fledged online promotion, offering to produce a shark costume based on the Super Bowl sensations “if we receive enough interest.”

To register your interest, simply enter your email address on this page.


It’s fitting that the name of the site is Bonobos, because shark-suit fans on Twitter are reacting to this news by going ape—well, you know.

In the meantime, if you absolutely must have a Super Bowl shark costume right now, 3D printing has you covered.
