One task is to jump over a shark named 'Fonzie'. This is a reference to a scene in the sitcom Happy Days
in which The Fonz jumps over a shark. This scene is regarded as unrealistic and tacky, and is seen in hindsight as the moment when the show ceased to be good. "Jumping the Shark" has become a general term for similar situations
Television advertisements curiously highlighted the lack of loading time between scenes and areas (seamless gameplay) as an important feature of the game, even up to calling Wasteland
the first skate game to have this.
