Tonight, Sharknado 2: The Second One premieres on SyFy. In this sequel, which sees the return of Ian Ziering and Tara Reid alongside newcomers Andy Dick, Mark McGrath, and Vivica A. Fox, there’s yet another shark storm brewing, but this time in New York City. The movie has promised to be bigger, better, and campier than the first. We’ll soon find out whether or not that’s true, but one thing is for sure: Sharknado 2 is best paired with booze. To help you out, here are the rules for Flavorwire’s official Sharknado 2 drinking game.
Take one sip if…
… any of the characters kills a shark.
… there is a surprise celebrity cameo. (Two sips if said celebrity dies.)
… there is blatant product placement or SyFy brand integration that totally takes away from the integrity of a movie called Sharknado.
… the movie reiterates that it takes place in New York City (a subway scene, Citibikes, a shot of the Statue of Liberty, etc).
… an actor appears onscreen and you know who they are, but can’t quite put your finger on their name, even though you’ve definitely seen them before.
… anyone says the word “shark.” (Just kidding, please don’t do this. You’ll die.)
Finish your drink if…
… one of the main characters is murdered by a shark.
… there is any mention of Twitter, either within the movie or as an annoying SyFy suggested hashtag.
… you catch any reference to Jaws.
… any character makes a cringe-worthy joke or pun of the “jump the shark” variety.
… there is any meta reference to the first Sharknado.
… you think of something funny to tweet about the movie but get to Twitter and realize everyone else already made the same joke.
Finish the bottle if…
… Matt Lauer and Al Roker awkwardly fumble through their Sharknado “forecast.”
… Fin (Ian Ziering) breaks out the chainsaw.
… a New York City landmark is destroyed.
… Kelly Osbourne, Andy Dick, or Mark McGrath dies.
… the ending strongly implies that there will be a Sharknado 3.
