Last night, Reddit user PhenominableSnowman put out an AMA Request for the, and we quote, "Person Wearing Shark Costume at Katy Perry's Super Bowl Halftime Show." There were two sharks on stage with her last night during the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show and while the left one went viral for some botched dance moves, both of them ended up being the highlights of the show.

After a few hours, the "right shark" took to Reddit to answer a few quick questions (So, technically not a full AMA). The dancer, Scott Myrick, has been working with Katy for the last five years and is currently on tour with her in support of her latest album, Prism. As you can see, he was pretty excited by the attention and answered a few questions below:
Is this the craziest costume you've ever danced in?
"It is up there.. I danced as a gingerbread man in her first tour the California dreams tour. And also her big purple cat, kitty purry. This is just another day in KP land."
How was visibility in the shark costume?
"The visibility was... Terrible. I ran into a palm tree but the camera missed it ;)"
Seahawks or Patriots?
"Patriots... Tom Brady. Duh"
How does one become a dancing shark in a super bowl halftime show?
"Well this is my 5th year working for Katy and I was actually a horse chest piece in dark horse and had to change into the shark costume in 1:30 seconds. It was nuts! But I guess it's just being at the right place at the right time hahah"
Would you rather fight one Katy Perry-sized duck or 100 duck-sized Katy Perrys?
Katy Perry sized duck. Hundo percent.
Redditors were confused if he was the right or left shark but Myrick ended up clarifying on Twitter. The left shark, Bryan Gaw, has yet to hop on Reddit for an AMA but ended up clarifying rumors on his Instagram late last night.
