It's no doubt that by now most of you all have been dazzled by Katy Perry's totally bonkers halftime show. The 30-year-old singer teamed up with Lenny Kravitz, Missy Elliot and the Arizona State University Sun Devil Marching Band to bring what is one of the best performances at a Super Bowl, ever. Seriously, we've had some amazing performers in the past, but I think this one takes the cake, and the internet certainly seems to agree.

For those of you ready to relive it all, check out some of the highlights and then take a look at some of the hilarious reactions from the world wide web:

Firstly, she entered on a giant metallic LION:

Note: not a tiger as the chorus lyrics initially tricked me into thinking...

And to be honest her entrance reminded me of something else:

While her costume reminded me of another film entirely:

Keeping with the metal theme she danced with some bizarre metallic people:

And then joined forces with Lenny Kravitz!:

I guess this was keeping with the Hunger Games-esque theme?

Before heading to the beach to dance with these showstoppers:

Left shark is my new hero.

Missy Elliot sang her early 2000s hits:

Which was awesome!

Before ending her set with a rendition of Firework and shooting off on a star:

Take a look at the whole thing here:

But although the entire performance was exceptional, there were definitely some standout moments, especially from one backup dancer who has quickly become the latest viral sensation, Left Shark.

The shark on the left, or 'Left shark' was a backup dancer in a shark costume who sang alongside Perry during Teenage Dream. While the shark on the right appeared to have memorized his or her moves perfectly, Left Shark obviously took a more lax approach to the choreography, take a look at the vine loop below:

After viewers both nationally and internationally saw the shark's slightly bumbling moves Left Shark's place in internet history was cemented.

Snoop Dogg made a bold claim:

Comparisons were made to the hologram shark in Back to the Future Part II:

Austin Powers star Verne Troyer claimed he 'wore it best':

This reaction from Richard Sherman:

The sad realization from the beach-balls on stage beside the sharks:

But seriously though, what was up with those beach-balls?!

All in all , I think we can call Katy Perry's halftime Super Bowl performance a total success.
