Since hardly anybody is going to watch the most boring Super Bowl match up in decades, tonight we have an extra-special video for you. It’s a full episode of The Aquabats Super Show, from their little-seen third (ish) season. The Aquabats, of course, are the world’s greatest crime-fighting, superhero rock n’ roll band!
“Shark Fighter” is based on a classic Aquabats song, and this episode guest starts Rhys Darby, who you may recognize from The Flight of The Conchords and What We Do In The Shadows. A relaxing day at the beach turns south for The Aquabats, when frenzy of land sharks attack… all seems lost, until the Shark Fighter(Darby) shows up!
The Aquabats Super Show had a brief, but successful run on the short-lived HUB Network, back in 2012-2014, and the show will return on the web later this year, thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign last summer. The show blends the humor of The Monkees with the music of DEVO and SKA, the action of the Batman TV Show, and a dash of the Kaiju-type monsters from The Power Rangers.
Members of the bard were the creative force behind Yo Gabba Gabba, and the end result of their efforts here was the perfect goofy action show that was appropriate for all ages.
In addition to new webisodes of The Aquabats Super Show, we can also expect new studio and live albums from the band this year, and who knows what else the future may hold?
