WHERE THE SEA AND SKY MEET — Do you ever see a video clip that perfectly matches every hit song in the last century? Because this video fills that specific niche like a champion.
This clip, filmed in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, shows a bird soaring above the sand and the waves while holding a baby shark it plucked from the ocean in its skillful talons. Cue the music, there’s a hit song for this (baby shark, doo doo, doo doo doo doo…) I’d like to apologize to all the people whose heads I got this addictive tune stuck in.
Just in case you haven’t seen a bird flying around with a shark that it just plucked out of the ocean... pic.twitter.com/ILKqd9wrFG— Rex Chapman🏇🏼 (@RexChapman) July 2, 2020
The internet has taken the already-interesting clip to new heights (insert bird joke here) as they added audio of famous songs to the background.
Michael Schwab added the main theme of “Chariots of Fire” and the result is fantastic.

But, of course, the fun doesn’t end there. Schwab also made the immaculate addition of “A Whole New World,” and suddenly I believe this shark is having the time of its life on a magic carpet ride above a city of sand of a different type than Agrabah.
I officially dub this shark Jasmine and the bird Aladdin.
The final clip of Jasmine and Aladdin gives us the audio of "Superman" when Lois Lane and her heroic boyfriend go soaring. Judging by the way Jasmine is wiggling, I’m guessing if she could talk, this is exactly how she'd sound.

Hopefully, this clip shows you a whole new world of possibilities and lifts your day. It certainly did mine. Now excuse me, I need to rewatch this clip several thousand times while singing, humming and dancing around.
