Did a double-take when I saw this commercial, so I looked it up on youtube... sure enough, at the 14-second mark, Chuck Norris punches a whale shark in the face (while freediving with his white Bengal tiger...).

Real strange. Saw the scene the first time I played this just now. Went back to look again, and the scene is not there. Went through it 3 times and the whale shark is not there.

EDIT: After I posted this the page came back and the scene was back. Then when replaying again, the scene was gone. Looks like somehow the commercial changes...

Looks like a whaleshark/megashark hybrid and judging by those teeth Mr Norris was being precautions

Whilst I don't want to sound overly ignorant, who is Chuck Norris? Am I missing something (doesn't look like it from the video)?

Thanks, I did - I'm not sure that it was worth the effort though.

Chuck Norris rocks!!!

He's so tough that when the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night he checks his closet for Chuck Norris.

Apparently they once made a Chuck Norris toilet paper, but it wouldn't take shit from anybody.
