As a dog owner, I actually HAVE had the thought that it would be a lot of fun to spray paint my dog, so I was secretly kind of happy to find out that someone has invented a safe way to do that.
But as a Shark Tank fan, I was disappointed with this segment. I know that as a reality TV program, the producers have to put quirky and kooky people on our screens to keep the morons watching, but I'd much rather see someone with a real innovation, not just a guy selling a product that has a pretty limited appeal and which will probably fold in a few years.
His sales aren't bad, and that perks the Sharks up a bit, but Lori goes out relatively quickly. Kevin launches into a monologue about the Phoenicians of ancient times who were able to create purple dyes from crushed mollusks. The other Sharks roll their eyes, but the moral of his tale is this: you must have a patent. He's out.
Mark gets up in arms that Abe hasn't really invested in his online presence, saying it could create a snowball effect of social media attention. He's out.
Barbara comes in with a pretty attractive offer: $200,000 for 60%. At first glance, that doesn't seem like a very sweet deal, but she promises Abe that she will get everything up and running and all he has to do is sit back and count his money. Sounds good to me, but not to Abe. He rejects her offer and leaves the Tank empty-handed.
