For $129.99 you can dance around in your very own Left Shark hooded jumpsuit. Or you can opt for the $25 Left Shark T-shirt, also available on the pop singer's official website.

The aquatic dancer emerged during last month's Super Bowl XLIX halftime show, where his uncoordinated dance moves made him a social media sensation. He inspired cookie cutters, t-shirts, onesies, and a slew of other merchandise on craft and e-commerce websites.

This included Fernando Sosa's Left Shark figurines that were being sold on Shapeways, an online 3-D printing marketplace. Last month,  the site was served a cease-and-desist order from Perry's lawyers and immediately deleted the Left Shark design from its catalog. The company canceled orders for the product and refunded customers.

According to Sosa, the cease-and-desist letter stipulated that Perry owns the rights to the dancing beach balls, palm trees, and sharks that appeared in her halftime performance.
