If the “you’re doing it wrong” meme needs an official vehicle, this is it.

To promote its ongoing sponsorship of Discovery Channel’s annual Shark Week, which kicks off on Aug. 4th, Volkswagen has built a shark cage based on one of its vehicles…the Beetle Convertible.

Last year, it put together a much more functional submersible craft designed after the Beetle coupe, which has been modified this time around by getting its top chopped off.

Yes, the electrically propelled submersible actually works and a video series featuring marine biologist Luke Tipple taking it for an Subaquatic Road Trip will be posted online.

We guess that’s assuming he doesn’t make a wrong turn into the local drive-in at feeding time.
