Hollywood Goes Bananas For 'Sharknado' On Twitter, But Did It Bring In The Viewers??

Sharknado
Did we not forewarn you of the awesomeness that will forever be remembered as Sharknado?

Last night, Syfy premiered its newest creature feature about, you guessed it, sharks attacking the citizens of Los Angeles via tornadoes. Although it really should've been called Sharkicane, because a major hurricane was really to blame for the problem, that's beside the point. It's science.

Although the movie only averaged 1.37 million viewers, and without being overdramatic, Twitter has basically exploded because of the tv movie starring Tara Reid. And thankfully, some of our favorite celebrities have continued the #Sharknado trend well into today.

Check out our favorite tweets about the movie and let us know what you thought of the sure to be camp classic.

Tara Reid ‏@TaraReid

Tonight, I will be live tweeting SHARKNADO. One catch: I will not actually be WATCHING it.

I am going to write the Sharknado sequel and I am going to do it before Shaknado is over.

Dammit, you idiots, JUST KILL THE QUEEN SHARK!!! #GetAwayFromHerYouBitch #LiveTweetingSharknado

This movie is such a ripoff of THE BICYCLE THIEF. #LiveTweetingSharknado #Highbrow

Burt Reynolds just dragged his nails across a chalkboard and said, "I took this part for a can of tomato soup." #LiveTweetingShaknado

"Mr. Mayor, I am an accomplished Meteorineologist. I know weather and I know sharks. And you, sir? Got BOTH." #LiveTweetingSharknado

"Oh sure, Janet... Next you'll be telling me sharks are falling from the sky!" Shark falls from sky, crushes dude. #LiveTweetingSharknado

Holy shit. Steve from 90210 just said, "If there's one thing I hate more than chlamydia, it's god dammed sharks." #LiveTweetingSharknado

For those of you already maligning my ending for SHARKNADO 2, you should know 3 things: Henry Winkler. Leather jacket. Water skiis.

The best thing about Sharknado's huge pop culture impact is that Tara Reid gets to look like a fucking genius for doing it.

Which one of you nerds is writing the story about how PACIFIC RIM's Thursday numbers were dampened by SHARKNADO? #PunIntended

Do you not watch THE NEWS?!?! RT @evilcheltdevil: Excuse me for being ignorant here....but what/who exactly IS 'Sharknado'?

@pattonoswalt I'll write 5 pages of SHARKNADO 2: THE SHARKENING if you write the next 5. Then pass it on. Deal?

Patton Oswalt ‏@pattonoswalt

.@DamonLindelof Why are you wasting time Tweeting me? Already starting my draft! #Sharknado

Just got a call from the 2nd A.D. on the movie I'm filming. Call time canceled tomorrow. ALL movies canceled. It's done. #SharkNado

Keep in mind, hipsters: @THEGaryBusey was trying to make #SharkNado "trend on Twitter" 15 years ago.

Clark Gregg ‏@clarkgregg

For my overseas pals: There was an awesome/awful TV event on tonight called #sharknado About sharks. In tornados. Chewing up LA #clarknado

Michael Chiklis ‏@MichaelChiklis

Oh Goddamn it, now I want to see it too and then I'm gonna want to quit the business...again! #SharkNado

Diablo Cody ‏@diablocody

Some of these tweets have reached their sharknadir.

I feel like Sharknado was Ke$ha's Brokeback Mountain.

Mia Farrow ‏@MiaFarrow

Well, there goes my Emmy. RT @Syfy: . @oliviawilde @MiaFarrow We have roles for you both in the #Sharknado sequel @DamonLindelof is writing

Josh Gad ‏@joshgad

The Producers of Planet Earth are watching #SharkNado tonight asking themselves, "why do we even try?"

If Spielberg could go back in time and stop Jaws from happening to prevent 2013's #SharkNado, I believe he would.

B.J. Novak ‏@bjnovak

I'm afraid that now when we have a real sharknado everyone's going to treat it like a joke

Mario Batali ‏@Mariobatali

Grilled for tacos! RT. @BryanOulton: @Mariobatali chef, how do you prepare a shark that flies to the ground from a tornado? #Sharknado”
