During tonight’s season finale episode of ABC’s ‘Shark Tank’ at 9 pm ET/PT, viewers will catch a glimpse of Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz of Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated fame (as well Disney Channel’s ‘Phineas and Ferb’) pitching the sharks his shrinkinator — perhaps ‘Doof is Due!’ t-shirts, anyway.
The promotion for the appearance, which is actually part of a full three minute video embedded below, spilled over onto Twitter recently with Dr. Doofenshmirtz (@DoofDaily) trading barbs back and forth with the sharks, including attempting to sell Real Estate magnate Barbara Corcoran on going in on purchasing the entire Tri-State Area.
‘I had a lovely Twitter chat with the Sharks – and after being rejected several times — I did what any reasonable mad scientist with a brilliant idea would do: I hacked their Facebook page and blackmailed them to let me on the show,’ shared Dr. Doofenshmirtz.
Overall, one should consider the synergy attempt quite successful, even if Dr. Doofenshmirtz wasn’t, though one does wonder why ‘Mr. Wonderful,’ Kevin O’Leary, failed to suggest manufacturing the shrinkinator in China, or ask about the patent/exclusivity of the device.
