Bruce Gathier is a retired horse jockey who created No Fly Cone. He places his cone over dog poop, which attracts the flies. He pitches No Fly Cone in Shark Tank Season 4.
No Fly Cone features Seth McFarlane
No Fly Cone requires dog excrement. As Bruce is pitching, Seth McFarlane, creator of Family Guy, comes into Shark Tank and rips Mark Cuban's Landmark Theaters.
Seth takes riding lessons from Bruce Gathier, who steps in to help him pitch No Fly Cone which only has $3,000 in sales.
Robert Herjavec says this is a QVC product selling dog poop! Lori doesn't like that idea.

What do the Shark Tank Investors say about No Fly Cone
Mark Cuban doesn't have any connections in this area, and because Seth picked on Landmark Theaters so, he is out.
Daymond John tells Bruce that the only reason he isn't out is that he brought Seth, but that is not enough so, he is out.
Kevin O'Leary has no interest in the poop business. Seth says, “They tell me you're not a very nice man!”
Lori Greiner commends him for coming up with a solution to a problem, but she cannot get past how it works and is not appealing. She is out.
Robert Herjavec believes that he can't add any value. He's sorry he is going to be out.
Seth McFarlane blames himself; he shouldn't have come on because he thinks he blew it for Bruce Gathier.
