If you were in charge of promoting the Syfy network’s upcoming creature-feature Mega Python vs. Gatoroid, you’d probably release a clip or trailer that showcases the combating monsters in action. You might even make available BTS footage of the film’s stars, former ’80s pop singers Debbie Gibson (Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus) and Tiffany (Mega Piranha), against a green screen pretending to do battle with the giant beasts.
What you wouldn’t do is release a sneak peek vid that completely overlooks Mega Python and Gatoroid in favor of a catfight between Tiffany and Gibson that culminates with both girls smearing whipped cream all over their ample bosoms. And, that is why you still live a home.
Now, take a look at how the pros at Syfy promote a flick:
Gibson plays a animal rights activist who frees an illegally imported snake in the Florida everglades only to see it grow to mega proportions. Tiffany, meanwhile, takes on the role of a park ranger determine to protect endangered alligators. The two don’t see eye-to-eye until they realize that working together may be the only way to save their town.
Mega Python vs. Gatoroid is directed by Mary Lambert (Pet Sematary), the first woman to helm a Syfy creature-feature.
