We are all obsessed with the sharks from Katy Perry's halftime show - or should we say, more specifically, with "Left Shark." Nothing against you right shark, your moves were totally on point, but left shark's seemingly off-beat choreography sorta stole the show.

Everyone was wondering if left shark got nervous and forgot his moves or maybe he was having trouble seeing out of his shark costume and he got a little confused...there were a lot of theories attempting to explain what went wrong.

Turns out, things went very RIGHT. "The sharks were given two main objectives," Katy's choreographer RJ Durell tells The Hollywood Reporter. "One, perform Katy's trademark moves to the 'Teenage Dream' chorus, which they both did perfectly; and two, to have loads of fun, and bring to life these characters in a cartoon manner, giving them a Tweedledee/Tweedledum-type persona."

"Clearly, that was portrayed with the overzealous shark on the right hitting precise dance moves while the left shark was playing up the more goofy, fun-spirited sports-fan mascot type, who was just happy to be at the Super Bowl," he continued.

So, what looked like a mistake was actually a brilliantly masterminded plan. Because, let's face it, if left shark was doing all of the same perfectly-performed dance moves like right shark was, would he still have gone viral? Well played, guys!
