VIDEO: Rob Lowe rides two sharks, for some reason

YES, that is heart-throb Rob Lowe riding two sharks.

Yes, he is throwing what appears to be a meaty kind of ticker-tape as sharks ascend from the waters into the sky.

And yes, it's that time of year again when Americans become completely obsessed with sharks for a whole seven days on Discovery Channel.

This year's theme "The King of Summer Since '87" celebrates the longevity of the strange tradition that often shows a lot of close-ups of enormous sharks.

To add to all things sharky, Sharknado 2: The Second One is also released this week.

When too much shark is never enough.
