Trailer For ‘Megashark Vs. Giant Octopus’ A Viral Hit

Does it say anything about our culture that this clip has been seen over a million times on YouTube? I wonder what it is about it that people find so fascinating. The cheapie special effects? The cheesy lines ( “thrilla in manilla!”)? Or maybe it’s the fact that it stars 80s pop sensation Debbie Gibson (now going by “Deborah”, by the way). Whatever the reason, if 1/8 of the people who viewed the trailer online purchase or rent the DVD, producers at the Asylum, the company that distributed it, will be extremely thrilled.
