Sharknado was one of the funniest pop culture hiccups of 2013. A silly B movie that in normal cases would have been buried in the horror aisle of Blockbuster, it became one of the biggest jokes on television, and it got monster ratings.
The whole Sharknado phenomenon that happened earlier this year was really hilarious. It’s amazing that a silly, low budget movie on the Syfy Channel could become a Twitter phenomenon, and a household joke, overnight. It also brought back the era of giant animal and insect movies that had been going since the ‘50’s.
