Saturday Night Live, "Land Shark"
Shortly after Jaws
came out, beach attendance dropped and supposed shark-sightings surged. SNL
played off this public hysteria with a sketch that starred Chevy Chase as a "land shark,"
an exceedingly intelligent breed of shark that hunts its prey on land. To further parody the film, the various attack scenes were intercut with scenes featuring Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi playing movie characters Chief Brody and Matt Hooper respectively as they attempt to figure out the victims' cause of death
