Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

Shark Week may be pandering, but sometimes pandering is awesome. And it’s the end of Shark Week, so we have to do something.

At the beginning of Shark Week we ran seven GIFs that best expressed sharkiness. Then we posted the best shark videos.

You’d think we’d have nothing left.

You’d be wrong.

This GIF, from Shark Attack 3: Megalodon, could not help but be equal parts awesome and pathetic. Random dude looks out window of jumbo jet, sees Megalodonian Doom approaching. Can he get out of it?

Sure. Seems plausible. Om nom nom, etc. But no.

Doom, boom.
