Just When You Thought the Internet Was Safe, the FULL Sharknado Trailer Arrives! (VIDEO)

This is an actual promotional still from Sharknado.


INT. SYFY HEADQUARTERS

A dozen Syfy executives sit around a large table nervously, but the boardroom is as silent as a church mouse. At the head of the table, the SYFY CEO stands with his back toward his employees. Several beats pass, no one makes a sound.

One executive shifts his weight in his plush office chair, which SQUEAKS.

The CEO spins around, fury in his eyes, which lock onto the guilty party.


SYFY CEO

You have time to move in your chair but you don't have time to make Sharknado the number-one trending topic on the internet!? YOU'RE FIRED!!!


The weight-shifter quickly grabs his belongings, stands up, and runs directly into the glass door of the conference room. The BONK from the collision echoes throughout the room. Blood pouring from his nose and dazed, he opens the door and hurries out. 

The CEO glares at the door, and notices a smudge where the fired exec's nose smashed into it. A beat passes, but the CEO's gaze never moves. 

One of the smarter execs runs to the door and wipes the smudge away with the sleeve of his $6,000 suit and hastily returns to his desk.


SYFY CEO

As I was saying. What the hell happened to Sharknado? We released a trailer last week, and it appears all the nerds on the internet have already forgotten about it! It's a movie about a tornado full of sharks, for crying out loud!!! How is this not on the front page of every major entertainment website?


EXEC #2
(nervously)

Sir, research shows the American people love tornadoes and sharks. They should go absolutely crazy over a tornado full of sharks. I don't know what went wrong. I personally oversaw the production of that trailer and my team all agreed: That was an incredible trailer.


SYFY CEO

Well allow me to personally oversee... YOUR FIRING! GET OUT! 


Exec #2 cries, grabs his stuff, and runs into the glass door. He stares at the CEO, who is returning his look with eye daggers. Exec #2 wipes his faceprint from the door, opens it, and exits. The room stays silent, save for the CEO's loud, angry breathing. 

The awkward pause is broken by some COUGHING. It's the cocky executive who came up with the idea for Sharknado.


COCKY EXECUTIVE

Yo, boss! You know what happens when you put a moron like that in charge of things? This!


The cocky executive holds up some papers with all sorts of data showing decreasing social media interest in Sharknado.


COCKY EXECUTIVE

Old Shit-for-Brains was right about two things. America loves its tornadoes, and America loves its sharks. But you know what else America loves?


CEO

I'm listening...


The cocky executive scoots out his chair and stands up, putting both hands on the table. 


COCKY EXECUTIVE
(calm and collected)


Chainsaws. Give me 15 minutes in the editing room and I'll have Sharknado on the front page of TV.com in no time.


The CEO grins.


SYFY CEO

I like the cut of your jib.


Here's the NEW trailer:


Sharknado airs Thursday, July 11 at 9pm on Syfy. Keep your eyes peeled afterward, we're planning to photo-recap it.

OMG, I loved the second part of the SYFY boardroom script! Oh man, "Well allow me to personally oversee... YOUR FIRING!", Syfy CEO classic!
P.S: I think I laughed more watching this one-minute trailer than watching most sitcoms the past season... If they were going for laughs, they did an amazing job!

THIS JUST IN: Wil Wheton is watching Sharknado right now and tweeting his ass off. He's pretty damn funny like, "Four minutes and I haven't seen a shark! What the hell!??--Seafood restaurant commercial during Sharknado. Brilliant. Shit, my wife is reading them so fast I can't type them all...

FINALLY, I've been able to watch this trailer in the UK now that you've sourced it from YouTube and not the official Syfy video player. F U Syfy.

Them brain-dead, corporate slags at Syfy are running a television network (barely) without any creative, artistic considerations. It's ALL about profits, profits, profits and margins and I can just imagine their boardroom table is stacked up with statistical data of everything they need to consider to improve their profits. Everything from blocking international visitors from viewing a trailer so they can earn the most when they eventually sell the rights, to, a list of the most profitable show concepts i.e very low budget shows with such a ludicrously ridiculous plots that people want to see because it sounds so bad. I bet this is their entire corporate strategy behind this insane Sharknado. From a sell-out money whore perspective, it's probably a genius idea because appalling movies/shows often earn a cult status from all the nutjobs in society. (Syfy's current target audience) The exec's will probably earn themselves a new masonic badge from their local lodge for their sheer cunning and evil business plan.

If the Syfy actors and actresses and all of the genuine creatives who work behind the scenes actually opened their eye's for two seconds and observed the corporate reptiles their working for, they might actually realize that their soul is missing. If they would have read the small print in their contract, they could have prevented their soul from being taken off them and transported to the nearest grandmaster lodge where it was bum raped and fisted by lizard old men with an Illuminati tattoo's.

Anyway, that's enough Syfy abuse for today. I will continue my rant when I see the STUPID word 'Syfy' on TV.com again. God I hate them SO much. I think it's obvious why but just in case your wondering.....

Syfy F U for not bringing Firefly back
Syfy F U for ending Battlestar Galactica after only 4 seasons,
Syfy F U for F'ing up Caprica,
Syfy F U for ending Alphas,
Syfy F U for ending Sanctuary,
Syfy F U for ending Stargate Atlantis,
Syfy F U twice in the butt for F'ing up and ending Stargate Universe,

Also, even though I know it wasn't aired on your network, F U Syfy for what happened to the TV show Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles because I reckon you had something to do with it the way it ended as that's YOUR tactic. You probably done a funny handshake with the people behind it because you don't like to see science fiction fans enjoying a TV show too much.

F U Syfy.

rant over!

Seriously. I HAVE to see this!
My fav part of the trailer was when Steve from (the original) 90210 said "I can't sit back and watch this."
Nevermind 'so bad it's good' this looks to be 'so bad it's legendary!'

I read that the sharks won't give any interviews. They're apparently major divas.

I don't know what their problem is, but they need to stay out of the clubs. There's always a nasty brawl when they try to go out. Fortunately, they don't leave any bodies, so they've escaped problems on that end. The DUI's might get them, though

Oh, I could so totally get behind that. The sharks were really smeared in that film. You notice the director fell into disrepute after that movie and has never been heard from again.

That might be the West Side element coming out. The others seem pretty content doing the convention circuit...well, aside from those looking to remake that mid seventies movie from their pov.

Omg, why do I really want to see this!

My point is that SyFy crap movies and stupid shows continues!

They should change their name from SyFy to Crap Fy since the only thing that they produce is crap fiction.

This level of stupidity is an insult even for the decent "b movies".

Sure it seems stupid, but also fun stupid, like those people you see in WalMart emails--not Honey Boo Boo or Big Brother stupid. Now that's some stupid you can hang your hat on. Think about it, it's sharks in a tornado and it just shows that our minds are pretty cool to think up goofy shit like this...

Once you do Sharknado, you have to be referred to as an "actor", with quotes around it.

Yup, I was there--although they dressed it up for television. They actually already had a really big chopper, and 500 pound sharks landing on you was the real problem. But that tornado was no slouch either--I think they call it a water-spout or something too, but Sharkwater-spout just didn't click somehow...

Not that I was going to watch the show, but after your "conference-scene" I had to watch the trailer. I'm suprised they got that many kpopular and known actors fot this sort of s**t. Seems someone needed some money :D

This is going to be ever present on "FTW / WTF" lineups. As long as it runs.....

We can abbreviate anything these days. I was watching an old episode of Off the Map last night and this doofus said his name was "Fer"--short for Christopher--and refused Mamie Gummer when she asked if she could just call him Chris--but he got laid, anyway(s)...

hah, awesome! i thought that was 90210 in the original short trailer.

i had a smile on my face the whole 1:06 of this trailer.

"I just can't sit here and watch this"... truer words have never been spoken. Now, I'm all for seeing our old faves from 90210 get work, but this??? "it's time to leave Kansas mate!" duhhh...what? they were in an Ocean state, California, I'm guessing? Are you telling me that in order for a Tornado to make it thru 5 states it just needs sharks? perhaps it was a reference to Wizard of Oz, we may never know. but wanna know what REALLY tweaks my melon? SyFy Cancels all their good programs WH13, Eureka, Alphas, gives us Defiance (not knocking it, but still) and then makes this???? WTF is wrong with this Channel??? Anyone? Anyone?

I still can't believe this is a real movie. With the last trailer only going "This content is unavailable" I believed it to be a prank. But the film is there on syfy.com...

This is going to be so horribly bad that it's probably a lot of fun. And it defnitly needs a photo recap.

All these years I thought they were saying SHARP-shooters. It's true, you learn something new every day. But where the hell is Bruce Davison? First, he's conspicuously missing from Under the Dome, and I didn't see him here either. I'd like to file a missing persons report, please. Can Price really do this from ComiCon? He's good, but is he that good--we'll see. Hope they have SyFy in our Motel 6 in San Diego (Escondido, actually), or at least WyFy. Gotta see this really really bad...

Oh crap, it's THIS Thursday--Well, in my defense, I'm just so damn sharkcited, and then there's that Bruce Davison thing to worry about. When they find the body, Price can photo recap that from San Diego...

For me I enjoy a good sci-fi as much as the next person but to allow "a crappy movie" is just wrong. it says we don't care what you make. you could not call this a b-movie as that would be an insult to b-movies. but I understand where you are coming from but I could not sit and watch it.
