Hey! Do you want to get eaten by a shark? No, I mean a fake shark. Like, in a movie. A TV movie. From the people who made Sharknado. You do? Well, whoa Dolly, do I have some good news for you.
See, The Asylum, the production company behind the shark-filled natural disaster movie that took the Internet by storm last week, is having a contest, and the winner will get a walk-on role and a death scene in their next movie, Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark. EVERY CHILD’S DREAM!
Here are the details:
The Asylum is excited to announce its latest fan contest: one devoted fan of the MEGA SHARK franchise will win a walk-on role, including a death scene, in MEGA SHARK VS. MECHA SHARK. Entrants must prove that they are the most devoted MEGA SHARK fan by presenting photographic or video evidence of their fandom, plus a brief description of themselves and why they deserve to win. One winner will receive a two-day trip to Los Angeles, including air fare and lodging, and a walk-on role in the film.
What qualifies as “proof” of ultimate fan devotion? Anything. The Asylum will evaluate photos and videos sent in by our fans of body art, painting, sculpture, music, and every other kind of fan tribute imaginable. The contest will be judged by employees of The Asylum based on creativity, intensity, and displayed level of enthusiasm for MEGA SHARK. That’s it. It’s open-ended, it’s subjective, and it’s entirely dependent on what our fans end up turning in as evidence of their deep and abiding passion for MEGA SHARK and The Asylum. Anything is possible; anything, even pre-existing fan art and the like, will qualify, as long as it is demonstrably the original work of the entrant.

NOTE: Don’t even bother entering. I’ve got this in the bag. See you in Hollywood, suckers.
