Discovery Channel Has Released the Kraken!

It's pretty much the first rule of sailing: If someone has released the kraken, you run away. Just as Captain Jack Sparrow if you don't believe us. Seriously, encountering a kraken is really, really bad news.

Which is just one more reason why this new clip from The Dsicovery Channel is so amazing — because these lunatics actually went searching for one!

Yes, hard as it is to believe, the new documentary "Monster Squid: The Giant Is Real," which airs tonight on the Discovery Channel at 8 p.m. ET, follows a group of scientists as they try to locate the legendary monster. And even crazier? They actually did it!

Of course, this being the kraken, they can't show too much of it in this clip otherwise your mind will devolve into gibbering madness at the sight of its unholy terror. So it doesn't appear until right at the end of this teaser, which otherwise features grown men squealing "Squid! Squid!" as though they are playing the most exciting game of Pictionary ever.

But hey, you know what they say: It's all fun and games until someone releases the kraken. Check it out, courtesy of Stumble Upon — just don't say that we didn't warn you. Right, Captain Jack?
