Last year the Syfy channel brought us Sharknado and this year it happened again. Special guest Scott Aukerman returns for a very special episode of How Did This Get Made? about Sharknado 2: The Second One. From the “homages” to other various movies, to whether a shark bit off Tara’s whole arm or just her hand, to Al Roker & Matt Lauer having huge roles in the movie, to the Statue of Liberty’s head becoming the boulder from Indiana Jones, to all the cameos which include Jared the Subway guy & Biz Markie, to “Frogger”. We cover it all! Plus, Paul & June’s baby makes his podcast debut! Chompa. Chompa. Chompa.

WHAT? There is now way that's Tara Reid's arm. She gets her hand eaten barely past her wrist. The arm in the shark's mouth goes to the elbow. Also, how the hell could that shark continue to stay aloft for days? This movie. Was. Insane.

They mentioned that Richard Kind's character was also the team's manager for 15 years. Was he distracted during every single home game about his last at-bat as a player?

And what kind of enclosed stairway, which is clearly itself a fire exit, and is somehow filling with water, would have another sign directing you to a fire escape, that is just a spiral staircase, the most difficult type of stairs to navigate?

Also, Mark McGrath was excited about jumping through the 42 because he's a huge fan of Douglas Adams. However, "Sugar Ray" is not a known h2g2 reference.

But he jumped through a number 42 in Citi Field, the home of the New York Mets, who are not known to be Douglas Adams fans. They had a big ceremony where they retired Jackie Robinson's number in commemoration of baseball's integration several years ago. So, he's either happy because he's a baseball fan and liked Jackie Robinson, or he's happy because he didn't like Jackie Robinson and he's destroying a physical representation of the man's legacy.

Didn't watch the movie, but from listening to the podcast, can I assume Tara Reid pulled a Bruce Campbell?

When is it ever a good idea to put lighter fluid into a supersoaker and use it as a flame thrower? #supersoakersarestillathing? :blink: #itstinks

There were a lot of references to other movies. A lot.

Can we please address the fact that the Empire State Building was blown up then appears fully intact at the end?

Another reason that that shark was definitely the same one that bit off Tara Reid's arm is that the GUN she was holding when she got her hand bitten off too!

I will say, I had a much much much better time listening to the podcast than watching Sharknado 2.

My guess with the tattoo discussion is that much like in video games; the production didn't want to pay the tattoo artist for using his/her tattoo image in the movie. Much like the Mike Tyson/Hangover issue that arose.

Did anyone notice during the rope swing scene they threw the rope over the pipe but they were just using one rope to swing? Where's the other side?

I also had a similar thought about the scarcity of sharks after these two movies and going forward. At this point it's safe to assume the shark population is dangerously low. How does that affect the ecosystem? Is it like when all the bees die out humans will be dead within a few years?

4 million people watched Sharknado 2?! No wonder they got this episode out in record time! And by comparison, the Gooby episode was recorded at the old studio; at least 4 months ago.

Nice to see that June allowed herself to be photographed, on this special occasion.

I was really hoping Jason was going to leave Scott hanging when he started singing the Wipe Out song, it happened with them on a Comedy Bang Bang episode a few years back and it was hilarious.
