If it weren't for drunk guys at a bar, the world might never have been exposed to one of the most awesome ideas in entertainment history: Shark Week!
According to The Atlantic, John Hendricks, Clark Bunting, and Steve Cheskin (considered the three main primogenitors at Discovery Channel) were at a bar near their office brainstorming ideas while shouting at each other over the music being played on the bar's jukebox:
The next events played out exactly as millions of shark fanatics across the globe have probably imagined. “As I’ve heard it, they were just talking about what kinds of things would be fun to do on Discovery,” the executive producer says. “And one of them said something like, ‘You know what would be awesome? Shark Week!’ And somebody in that nexus scribbled it down on a napkin. You know how that is. An idea in a bar comes from many fathers.”
So the next time you see a bunch of drunks shouting over each other at a bar, pay close attention. Because you might just be witnessing the beginnings of something awesome.
