Mega Piranha: Mega Anything is Okay With Me. Except Herpes. Mega-Herpes Would Suck.

Mega piranha movie poster  Sometimes a movie comes along that asks all the right questions and speaks to a generation of movie-goers in a unique way that is reflective of the time and place in which it was made. And other times, they make movies like Mega Piranha, where giant fish with teeth try to eat Greg Brady and bad pop stars from the late 1980s and the only way to repel them is by using well-timed karate kicks. I think we can all relate to THAT..

One of the best clues that Mega Piranha is a genius film is the line in the trailer where it is said "something went terribly wrong". What the fuck were they doing with piranha in the first place. Trying to cure cancer? I don't know what scientific application piranhas have. If you apply heat from a Bunsen burner to a hostile piranha will it excrete some magical chemical that is the pharmacological equivalent of the Fountain of Youth? If you sew a piranha onto a damaged limb will it regenerate into an all-powerful tentacle? I don't have the answers. I guess that's why I'm still waiting to win the Nobel Prize for Cleverest Use of Fish. 

But back to the movie. It looks like quite a mind-blowing thriller because apparently THESE piranha can fly and don't need to be underwater at all and that could spell a heap of trouble for Barry "I humped Mrs. Brady" Williams and Tiffany because "Of course, TIffany." I think we learned a valuable lesson from Megashark Vs. Giant Octopus, which had Debbie Gibson in a lead role. And that lesson is "If a late 80s bubblegum popstar falls in the woods and no one hears, can I borrow a dollar?"or maybe it's "Why the hell am I watching this movie, again?" Another valuable lesson I've learned from watching giant fish movies is "I want a sandwich." and another another valuable lesson is "Why is my toe lint ALWAYS blue, regardless of my sock color?" Mysteries abound when Mega piranha get involved.

Will this movie be on SyFy? You bet your sweet ass it will.

Here's the trailer:

Mega Piranha is biting that exploding war ship in half. Mega Piranha can have whatever washed up 80's pop star he wants.

Is there a Nobel Prize for awesome? If so, I think we've got a candidate.

And that lesson is "If a late 80s bubblegum popstar falls in the woods and no one hears, can I borrow a dollar?"

Best. Lesson. Ever.

Were this not on a reputable site like Mamapop, I would totally have thought it was a CollegeHumor spoof video. Also, what kind of tranquilizers do you think they gave the actors so they could keep straight faces while saying their cheesetastic lines?
