Sorry, everyone who tweeted something puntastic for the Sharknado sequel title (Sharknado: The Second Chumming). SyFy has revealed to Entertainment Weekly (EXCLUSIVELY!) that the winner of among the 5,000 Twitter suggestions it received is Sharknado 2: The Second One. Thanks for playing!
When Syfy greenlit another Sharknado just days after the original premiered, the network also announced that they would be hosting a subtitle contest on Twitter, and all users need to do was submit their suggestions to @SyfyMovies with the hashtag #Sharknado. So we set out to find the brilliant person who suggested "the second one" and came up, well, empty handed. (Perhaps they've deleted their tweet out of modesty?) The earliest tweet we could find mentioning "Sharknado" and "second one" is this one from "tummy sticks."
So, #Sharknado was in Los Angeles. The second one will be in New York. I'm pushing for the third to be in Miami!— tummy sticks (@stagnooo) July 17, 2013
No, it's not a title suggestion (though, SyFy, you can have that one for free: Sharknado 3: The Third) but nor are any other instances tweeted out before today's announcement. So the bard who gave us "The Second One" remains a mystery. We've reached out to Syfy and Sharknado director Anthony C. Ferrante to see if we can learn now.
For now: this is it. Sharknado 2: The Second One. Congratulations, Twitter.
