If you weren’t aware of the existence of Sharknado on Thursday night, well, what’s wrong with you?
The SyFy Channel’s made-for-TV movie absolutely took the Internet by storm in unprecedented fashion. It was perhaps the apex of ironic “so bad it’s good” culture, and its reach was in no way limited to one part of American culture.
Athletes, TV personalities and sportswriters from across the world of sports all took to Twitter to join in the phenomenon and share their thoughts about the film. Check out just a few of their tweets below.
