What the Syfy channel’s line of original films may lack in competent acting, direction, writing, visual effects, lighting, sound, and craft services, they more than make up for in their ability to combine two giant creatures into one giant hybrid creature and have that giant hybrid creature fight another giant hybrid creature for our entertainment. Whether it’s Piranhacondas, Gatoroids, or Mansquitos, the Syfy channel has become the foremost creator of hybrid, poorly-rendered monstrosities — most notable among them being the Sharktopus, which was birthed unto this earth back in 2011 only to vanquished via brain bombs by noted thespian Eric Roberts shortly thereafter, Amen.

Regardless of the Sharktopus’ fate (or the film’s abysmal reception even among Syfy movies), the Syfy channel has announced plans to release *two* sequels featuring the half-shark half-octopus this year, starting with Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda. Given how much attention Syfy has received for Sharknado and its upcoming sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One, it was only a matter of time before they started pulling in celebrities of a higher caliber than Jared the Subway Guy and Mark McGrath, right?

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you…

Yes, this is a real poster. In fact, it is one which Conan O’Brien actually had plastered on a Hollywood billboard to hype his upcoming cameo in Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda, which he announced on his show last night. It’s so goddamn glorious I think I might cry.

A quick look over O’Briens Wikipedia page reveals that he has never appeared in a live-action movie where he didn’t play himself. While it’s not known whether Conan will be donning an actual role in Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda or simply showing up to be eaten by one of the creatures, Joey Fatone in Jersey Shore Shark Attack-style, you can pretty much guarantee that this movie will go down as the most watched Syfy original film in the channel’s history thanks to the fierce dedication of #TeamCoco.

One can only hope that Sharktopus vs. Mermantula is able to pull a twofer and bring in both O’Brien and Chuck Norris as Walker, Texas Ranger.

Syfy has done it again. The only thing more dangerous than Sharknado is Ghost Shark. But what if they conjure a tornado of ghost sharks? Then my friends, it looks like the desert is the only safe place to live.

Until Sandshark awakens from his prehistoric slumber.
