Tonight on Syfy Channel, the most anticipated event of the summer hits home… Sharknado: The 4th Awakens. When Sharknado (2013) became a pop culture phenomenon thanks to celebrities tweeting about it, director Anthony C. Ferrante knew he had something, and they quickly churned out a sequel per-summer. One of the biggest highlights of any Sharknado film, is counting all the cameos. The cross-cultural hit, the Sharknado series has had cameos from actors (A-D list), musicians and rappers, entrepreneurs, politicos, pro-wrestlers, you name it. And now… a music video.
Check it out below.
To really show the impact the series has had, platinum recording artists The Offspring, have recorded a music video for the upcoming fourth installment using scenes from the first three films. While the song is not… good, I don’t necessarily think that was the intention. It features the typical upbeat punk rock that Offspring fans are familiar with, but with a definite schlocky Sharknado feel. Lead singer Dexter Holland adds his patented punk inflections to lyrics like “Bigger than big, Taller than tall, Quicker than quick, April and Fin just might save us all!” The Offspring video will certainly have you humming “Sharknadooooooo” over and over throughout the day.
The Syfy channel has a Sharknado marathon starting at 2:00 this afternoon, running through parts 1 – 3 before the debut of Sharknado: The 4th Awakens at 8:00pm ET tonight. Be there for the music, the cameos, the NADOS!

Direct from The Offspring comes a musical celebration of the most important film franchise of all time. Ian Ziering will slay again in Sharknado: The 4th Awakens, reprising his role as shark-fighting hero Fin Shepard, while Tara Reid is set to return as April Wexler to reveal the outcome of the fan-voted #AprilLives or #AprilDies social campaign. The fourth addition to the hit global franchise also sees the return of David Hasselhoff as Gil Shepard and Ryan Newman as Claudia Shepard. Additional roles will be played by Tommy Davidson, Cheryl Tiegs, Gary Busey, Cody Linley, Imani Hakim and Masiela Lusha.
Sharknado: The 4th Awakens will take place five years after the East Coast was ravaged in Sharknado 3. Fin, his family and the cosmos have been blissfully sharknado-free in the intervening years, but now sharks – and “˜nados! – are being whipped up in places (and ways) that are completely unexpected”¦
