Described as “a light and refreshing perfume perfect for day-to-day wear,” Shark is full of scents like lavender, violet, and cool blue rose, all meant to convey a “light and fun feel.” This is highly suspect. Sharks are not light and fun. They are the opposite of light and fun. They are large and terrifying.
However, if one wanted to become a shark, then smelling light and fun would be advantageous. »

Does this scent have more hints of 'Sharknado' or the 'American Pie' actress?

What does this $24.95 fragrance smell like (besides a bad idea)? "Shark by Tara is a light and refreshing perfume perfect for day-to-day wear. It also incorporates a plethora of 'lavender' colored flowers, which is Tara’s favorite color, making them a true fit for Shark by Tara," the description reads.
"Shark by Tara perfume is a complex scent with three different levels of nodes that embrace our fresh, light and fun feel. Our top-level node is clad with iced mint, violet and lemon, while our middle node is complete with jasmine, tuberose and muguet »
The parade of blood, guts, and 'C' list cameos known as 'Sharknado 2' was such a huge hit that Tara Reid says she's down for another sequel ... which is perfect! We've already got a rough draft -- "Sharknado 3: Is That a Hammerhead in Your Pocket, Or ..."It's a Very rough draft. Read more »

Remember Snakes On A Plane? The movie whose ridiculousness was picked up on mid-production and which became a fleeting sensation across the internet? The studio ended up altering dialogue in order to please the growing number of fans for a film that hadn’t come out yet. When it did, the box office underwhelmed. However, SyFy have found a more effective way of launching Grade A garbage on the small screen, as the premiere of Sharknado 2: The Second One garnered 3.9 million viewers, the most the channel has ever had for an original feature. Can a story about a freak weather condition chock full of sharks be called original? Thinking about it, I guess it could!
Starring The Big Lebowski’s Tara Reid, the sequel also drew blood on social media, with 581,000 Tweets under its dorsal fin. Celebrities weighed in on the subject, consolidating the franchise as a true phenomenon. »

Sharknado 2: The Second One premiered last night on Syfy and it was exactly what you’d expect—times two. Giant sharks swirling around a giant tornado terrorized unsuspecting humans, but this time the weather phenomenon stormed the streets of the Big Apple. Needless to say, Lady Liberty was not pleased.
In addition to ludicrous plot lines and cheesy acting, the Sharknado social media shenanigans were at an all-time high last night, with many fans and celebrities tweeting their reactions enough to make star Mark McGrath proud.
If you’re unsure of whether or not a weather disaster so ridiculous could happen in a town near you, or simply wanted an early crack at Tara Reid‘s shark-inspired perfume, we’re breaking down 11 noteworthy responses to Sharknado 2‘s madness.

Last August, Syfy's "Sharknado" premiered to a, um, sharknado of Twitter attention, but almost no live audience. That appears not to have been a problem for Wednesday's (July 30) premiere of "Sharknado 2: The Second One." Syfy boasts that "Sharknado 2" drew 3.9 million viewers, including 1.6 million in the key 18-49 demographic. The original "Sharknado" drew under 1.4 million viewers total, so that's not unimpressive. In addition to rising 183 percent in total viewers from the premiere airing of "Sharknado," "Sharknado 2" was up 190 percent among adults 18-49 and 185 percent among adults 25-54. But the cable network was less interested in trumpeting the tangible ratings for the Ian Ziering/Tara Reid sequel and more interested in puffing up some social media statistics that -- let's be perfectly honest here -- are simultaneously imprecise and entirely unmonitizable. So let's celebrate some of those meaningless faux-statistics. Apparently "Sharknado 2" delivered 1 billion estimated impressions for "Sharknado" Twitter conversations. »

In the lineage of movie sequels that outdid their predecessors, there’s The Godfather Part 2, Aliens, Terminator 2, The Dark Knight, and now…Sharknado 2: The Second One. Sharknado premiered on SyFy last July, and became an instant hit with audiences, aided by the fact that viewers were encouraged to Tweet about the movie as they watched it.
What was it that made the latest offering from The Asylum so eminently watchable? The gleefully silly, go-for-broke absurdity of it all, where nothing was outside the realm of possibilities, and the low $2 million budget didn’t stop them crafting some wild set-pieces, even if the effects were diabolical, the acting mostly terrible, and the central plot completely forgettable.
It was a charming movie, and the clear love with which it was made earned it a place in the hearts of cineastes the world over for its “so bad it’s good” quality, »

“Sharknado” hasn’t yet jumped the shark with viewers, as Syfy’s sequel to last year’s creature feature drew a sizable crowd of 3.9 million viewers on Wednesday night — dwarfing the original’s total, according to Nielsen’s “live plus same-day” estimates.

By comparison, the NBCUniversal cabler averaged 987,000 viewers in primetime for the first four weeks of July. And in recent years, its biggest recent movie prior to last night was “Swamp Shark,” which gobbled up about 2.2 million in June 2011.
In adults 18-49, “Sharknado 2″ averaged about 1.6 million viewers — nearly triple what the original attracted — and outdrew Wednesday broadcast originals like “Extant,” “Motive” and “So You Think You Can Dance.”

Perhaps not so surprisingly, the perfume, which undoubtedly takes its naming inspiration from Reid's roles in the Syfy flicks about tornadoes full of sharks, doesn't have any notes of saltwater or fish guts. Instead, Reid's website describes the scent as "a light and refreshing perfume perfect for day-to-day wear" that "incorporates a plethora of 'lavender' colored flowers, which is Tara's favorite color."
There's no mention of "Sharknado" in the perfume's description, but it does say that the scent is "complex," not unlike the plots of the two films in the Syfy series, which feature Reid's character writing a book about sharknadoes, and strapping a saw to her freshly-amputated hand to fight the animals raining down from the sky. And the perfume's claim that it has a "fresh, »

Syfy’s campy “Sharknado 2: The Second One” delivered a bigger tempest on social media than its first showing, scoring as the most-tweeted TV show Wednesday as users and advertisers looked to gleefully lampoon — and gain attention from — the cabler’s creature feature.
About 5.5 million people saw at least one of the 581,000 tweets sent about “Sharknado 2” on NBCUniversal’s Syfy on July 30, according to Nielsen. Tweets about the TV movie were sent by 188,000 unique authors and seen a total of 67.2 million times, the research firm said. The first “Sharknado” produced 318,232 tweets from 111,604 unique users for its initial airing in July 2013.

With the popularity of films like The Room, Birdemic: Shock and Terror, and Sharknado (now with a 2 behind it!), it seems that some people tend to like bad movies more than they like good ones. However, long before Tommy Wiseau or James Nguyen were directing films, and before Tara Reid was even born, there was a magical man named Edward D. Wood, Jr. Even with his terrible sense of plot, sequence and cinematic structure, Ed Wood managed to give his own flavor to his films, culminating in the granddaddy of all bad movies: Plan 9 From Outer Space. In 1994, Tim Burton directed Ed Wood, telling the story of the infamous director and how his friendship with horror movie legend Bela Lugosi helped breathe some life into both of their careers. The 2004 DVD release of the film includes a commentary with Burton, edited together with his filmmaking cohorts, which delivers a comprehensive look at the film’s creation »

Sharknado 2: The Second One is a masterpiece of stupidity, set in a world so illogical that the most logical thing about it is a nearly unrecognizable Billy Ray Cyrus playing a doctor. But even with all the befuddling D-list celebrity cameos, airborne sharks, and bomb-dispatched ’nados, one moment rises from the chum bucket to claim the award for superlative brainlessness: the scene in which Tara Reid’s April Wexler signs a copy of her book, How to Survive a Sharknado. There probably are a million reasons why it’s the dumbest four seconds in the history of made-for-tv movies, or at least Sharknado 2: The Second One, but after the Gif, let’s get into the six we care about the most. 1. It is unintentionally stupid.The Sharknado franchise, as with most Syfy Original Movies, revels in intentionally imbecilic lines and plot developments, and a good percentage (77 percent?) of »

It doesn't really matter what else happened in the world Wednesday night, because the premiere of Sharknado 2: The Second One took place. The so-bad-it's-good SyFy Original returned to showcase airborne sharks imperiling Ian Ziering, Tara Reid and a small army of celebs in cameo roles. And people in large numbers on Twitter loved it. Below are our favorite reactions to the TV movie. Please feel free to add your own comments, or take to Twitter using the hashtag "#Sharknado2TheSecondOne." Wake up, sheeple! I don't want to get political but there have been more Sharknados during Obama's presidency than all other presidents combined. »

Fox Fin and April, the survivors of the first sharknado, head to the Big Apple to try and rekindle their romance, only to find that more sharks have taken up temporary residence inside inclement weather.

"Sharknado 2: The Second One" premiered on SyFy last night and as expected, the ridiculous factor was high and the gif-able scenes came out in full force. This sequel did not disappoint.
If you didn't watch or if you want to relive all the magic, we're taking a look back at the 23 most outrageous moments from the fine disaster film. There were actually more like 120 moments because Every minute of this movie was absolutely bonkers, but we narrowed it down to the creme de la creme.
Here you go:
1. Right off the bat (bats actually play into the film later, by the way), Fin (Ian Ziering) freaks out when he sees sharks falling from the sky outside of his plane. "It's happening again," he says to April (Tara Reid.)
2. Eventually the sharks completely take over the flight and one busts right through flight attendant Kelly Osbourne's Head.
3. Then there »

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me a million times when I’m drunk with the allure of original titles like Ragin Cajun Redneck Gators, Chupacabra Vs. The Alamo and Piranhaconda, well, I’m not sure where the shame lies, but for the sake of my own battered ego, I’ll just blame it on the alcohol.
Unfortunately my Sharknado double feature experience had to be a completely sober one, because on the contrary, I’m a terrible writer when under the influence. Yes, I’m one of the virgin souls who avoided the original Sharknado like a typical Asylum produced plague, not because of my hatred of B-Movies, but my undying devotion to Proper cult classics. Sharknado is nothing but a gory poser – a wannabe insta-classic focused only on one ridiculous gimmick and boatloads of viral marketing. Do you know why the original film was such a success? »
