We asked three Ig Nobel Prize-winning experts on sea life to comment on the soon-to-be-released horror film “Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus.” [The image below will, if you click it, show a trailer for the film].
Charles Paxton (co-winner, 2002 Ig Nobel biology prize for the study “Courtship Behaviour of Ostriches Towards Humans Under Farming Conditions in Britain“): “So this is a film where Debbie Gibson is at risk of being eaten by a giant octopus or a giant shark… It has *everything*, I want in a film. Excellent film. I will see it.”
Magnus Wahlberg (co-winner, 2004 Ig Nobel biology prize for the discovery that herrings apparently communicate by farting.): “This is a beautiful documentary, taking the traditional concept of nature movies where you investigate outstanding features of the normal, through a quantum leap to a new level of sophistication: investigating the normal features of the outstanding.”
