From the press release:
Beware of Land Shark: Monster Factory unveils a comical new plush design for Gallery 1988′s group show: “Is This Thing On #2 Too”, a tribute to SNL.
When Land Shark drops by unannounced, you should probably pretend you’re not home. He is NOT a plumber. Nor a dolphin.
Collectable toy brand, Monster Factory is excited to announce that their newest one-of-a-kind plush art piece, “A Monster Named Land Shark,” will be on display at the pop culture gallery, Gallery 1988, in their group show, “Is This Thing On #2 Too,” a tribute to SNL.
For this show, artist were asked to create work based on the memorable sketches from SNL’s long history. For Monster Factory it was a no-brainer to base their piece on the Land Shark sketch because of their big love of all things shark related and their designers’ nostalgic connection to vintage SNL.
