AfterShark: Crooked Jaw fails at Shark Tank but wins at business!

Don't call it failure. Although he targeted FUBU fashion mogul Daymond John to invest $200,000 in his surf-and-skate clothing label, Craig French from Long Island, N.Y., came away empty-handed on ABC's Shark Tank. But as he tells's Jason Cochran, the last laugh is his.

Although he didn't get a check from the Sharks, he did land a deal with a major retail chain, and the exposure on network television pulled in some 50,000 visitors to the Crooked Jaw Web site in less than 24 hours.
