Aside from Janet Jackson's Nipplegate, memories of Super Bowl halftime shows often recede as quickly as the names of the teams who won. And to be able to recall a halftime backup dancer? Forget about it! That is, of course, until Left Shark.
Katy Perry's performance at last year's Super Bowl XLIX ignited a pop culture phenomenon, not for the numbers she performed, or for the special guests who joined her (Lenny Kravitz, Missy Elliott), but instead for one half of the costumed dancing duo flanking her, now known as Left Shark, who grabbed the attention of the nation and many Halloween costume stores thereafter.
