Robotic Singing Fish
Everyone wants a robotic singing fish in their living room, right? If this wasn’t one of those weird inventions that already existed, you’d probably think we were joking. Somehow, towards the end of the 90’s, Pellettieri took a pit stop at a Bass Pro Shop Outlet. Someone told him to invent a singing fish on a plaque. He felt it was promising. He said, “the idea of a fish on a plaque singing ‘Take Me To The River’ was hilarious. Novelty toys are a notoriously fickle industry. Consumer tastes ebb and flow, and marketing experts say it’s virtually impossible to predict what causes a viral hit.” Somehow, the robotic singing fish went viral, and made him tons of money (The Hustle).
