Syfy have announced the title of the Sharknado sequel and it is…
Sharknado 2: The Second One.
Not exactly a hilarious title but it does raise a smile I suppose.
The title news was announced via EW and Thomas Vitale, executive VP of programming at Syfy, was also quoted there.
Since Twitter played such a huge role in the success of the original movie, we wanted to use that platform to ask our fans to name Sharknado 2… This response is another reminder of how Sharknado has become a pop culture phenomenon. We want to thank all our viewers for their wonderful contributions to keeping up the shark-mentum.
The title was reportedly plucked from 5,000 submissions on Twitter but nowhere in the report at EW does it say who came up with the winning suggestion. I did a search on Twitter and can't find any reference to the that title before today.
Surely the winner should be rewarded in some way for picking the title. Or at least get some sort of recognition. Presumably they'll come forward soon. Assuming it was a member of the public that actually picked the title.
By the way, you may have heard word that Jedward – if you have no idea who they are I suggest you remain ignorant – were set to appear in the Sharknado sequel.
Apparently that was just an "idea",
