While giving his trademark Tip of the Day, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly revealed on Monday that he had turned down a role in the upcoming television movie Sharknado 3.
“Sharknado 3, perhaps one of the dopiest concepts of all time, will be shown on TV this week,” the host of The O’Reilly Factor noted. “I have to admit I turned down a role in Sharknado 3, but I can see these movies are foolish and can be fun.”
Had he accepted the role, O’Reilly would have joined conservative figures Ann Coulter and Michele Bachmann and former Democratic politicians Jerry Springer and Anthony Weiner, all of whom have accepted cameos in the SyFy original movie.
From there, O’Reilly flawlessly pivoted to the video footage of the Australian surfer who punched a shark on live television. (The Factor Tip of the Day, as it turns out, was “punch sharks really hard if they attack you.”)
