Want a Bite?: The Best Sharknado 3 Tweets

Want a Bite?: The Best Sharknado 3 Tweets

DISCLAIMER: The following contains spoilers about the ending of Sharknado 3. If you haven’t seen it and you don’t want to spoiled, look away now.

Another Sharknado has come and gone, and in its wake, it has left a trail of bad jokes, cameo appearances, cheesy dialogue, and a social media reaction that could rival any massive “Sharkicane” moving in to your area. In honor of the third installment of SyFy’s mostly awesomely bad trilogy (with a forth having already been greenlit at the time of this writing), we’re going to take a look at the social media storm that hit living rooms around the world last night.

SyFy’s campy horror flick debuted in 2013 and quickly became an overnight sensation, drawing millions of viewers and an endless array of tweets raining down on us like, well, you know. In the years following, two more sequels have been released (the aptly titled Sharknado 2: The Second One, and the latest installment Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!) and millions continue to tune in, realism and storytelling be damned. Yes, it has all the depth of a puddle and the films have gotten increasingly more ridiculous than the concept (a tornado full of sharks terrorizes Los Angeles, then New York, and now Washington DC and Orlando), it still remains everyone’s favorite low-budget guilty pleasure.

Of course, like anything big television event like this, Sharknado 3 ignited a fury of responses across Twitter – reportedly it made over 2 billion impressions. Many of which came from brands trying to capitalize on the moment (also see: newsjacking). From snack companies to wireless providers, everyone was trying to get in on the fun. These were some of our favorites:

And the best was saved for last: The ending was left up to the viewers. SyFy is leaving the fate of April (Tara Reid) to an online vote. If you want to see her survive to the fourth movie, tweet #AprilLives. If you want to see her killed off, use #AprilDies.

Sharknado 3 is now in the books. So what’s in store for the fourth one? Expect more camp, more ridiculousness, more cameos, and just as much reaction across social media. Until then, we’ll see you next time.
