If you’re still not in on the joke a year later, allow me to do a bit of spoiling here: nobody actually thought that “Sharknado” was a good movie. It was really quite noticeably bad, so the funny part was how attracted everyone was to it, and if you still are confused, well then I can’t really help you. With that off my chest, I must now spoil for you the fact that nobody really likes Shark Week all that much anymore either, but it’s a cool thing to pretend to get all excited about every year except when someone tells you to “live every week like it’s Shark Week,” which doesn’t really make any sense at all.
Fortunately, I’m not here to ramble about Shark Week, I’m here to bring to you the trailer for “Sharknado 2: The Second One.” Now, with last year’s first film, there were some brief moments of light that implied that maybe, just maybe, the film’s creators were actually serious, which in turn led to the most humorous aspect of the film. This time around, it seems the filmmakers have embraced the shittiness of “Sharknado” and have gone so far as to hire the likes of Andy Dick and Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath to prove their stupid point.
“Sharknado 2: The Second One” will undoubtedly be terrible, as its poor title alone makes clear. But if its terribleness makes the American masses rejoice for one night, on July 30 at 9/8c on Syfy Channel, then dammit, let the our country embrace it. Hopefully by next year “Zombeavers” will have hit it big.
