OK here goes:

"Jumping the Shark" refers to a desperate attempt to be creative, innovative and cool when your back is against the wall and have absolutely nothing to loose.

It comes from the final episode of an old situation comedy television program from North America ("Happy Days") where the main character literally jumps over a shark while water skiing in Hawaii. This episode was so notoriously silly that since then, to "jump the shark", has become synonimous with "desperation".
