Verne Troyer, Instagram


While there are plenty of thing we love about Shark Week—including the hilarious promos and the shark-inspired celebrity pics—we didn't expect Verne Troyer to be one of them. Until today, that is.

The 45-year-old Austin Powers star took to Instagram on Wednesday to express his love for the annual week-long celebration, sharing a pic of himself dressed up in a shark costume, which subsequently sent us bursting into a fit of giggles.

"Got a little too excited watching #sharkweek last night," the actor captioned the photo, in which he's flipping through the television channels while dressed in character with a giant grin on his face.

Since there are so many amazing things happening in this pic, it's difficult to pinpoint our favorite part, but we can't get enough of those tiny shark feet, that epic headpiece or the fact that Troyer tagged his location as "The Pacific Ocean" (#genius).

Troyer certainly isn't the only celebrity shark week fan. Ashley Tisdale, Jimmy Fallon, Demi Lovato and more have all previously shared their penchant for sharks on social media.

But with that being said, the 2-foot, 8-inch star is most definitely our favorite shark aficionado. 

Stay fishy, Troyer!
