Discovery Building's "Shark Week" Promo Stunt

I thought you guys might get a kick out of this. The building I work in is across the street from the Discovery Channel building in downtown Silver Spring, MD (just outside DC). The Discovery building is enormous, probably only 12 stories or so high but sprawling, it would easily cover two city blocks if Silver Spring were laid out as such.

Anyhow, imagine my surprise when I came in Monday morning and looked out my 10th floor window to see an enormous shark's head. Apparently this week is Shark Week on the Discovery Channel and this is a promotional stunt. They've got a head, flippers, dorsal fin, and tail. I can't even imagine how much money they spent doing this. Anyhow I took a few pics, the first couple are from my window the others are from the ground. Have a laugh!
