In the words of Rob Lowe: "If you like me and you like sharks, then you will probably like this"—and we're happy to confirm that the studly actor is indeed correct.

The 2014 Shark Week promo has officially hit the web, and if you have yet to watch the wild clip, then prepare yourselves for the ridiculousness that is about to ensue.

The video stars the erstwhile Parks and Recreation actor, who literally has nothing to do with Shark Week (or so we think), but still makes for a pretty handsome lifeguard as he rides atop two sharks while sporting a white tank top and red swim trunks.

To add to the cheesiness factor, the clip plays out in slow motion and sees Lowe cruising through the ocean with a beautiful blond mermaid by his side. He throws fish pieces into the air before a series of sharks—complete with some seriously corny special effects—fly over his head (and even knock a windsurfer off his board!).

Lowe ends the clip by giving the camera a sexy stare before he proudly states "so sharky"—instantly fueling the excitement for the upcoming week of sharktastic TV.

Dubbed the "King of Summer Since '87" by Discovery, Shark Week kicks off on Aug. 10.

Will you be tuning in?
