SyFy's "Sharknado" series of original movies started with a very on-brand, low-budget yet CGI-heavy story about a storm picking up sharks from the ocean and unleashing them on California in a particularly inventive natural disaster. The film's surprisingly popular premiere turned it into a phenomenon, though, and two subsequent sequels have looked more like the network's version of a variety show, complete with progressively absurd sharknado scenarios and numerous celebrity cameos.

Here's President Cuban giving series star Ian Ziering a medal for saving the nation from sharknadoes in the past (via SI ): Unfortunately, another pesky sharknado broke up the party. Naturally, the renowned billionaire tech mogul and outspoken leader of the free world did not go down quietly: Congrats, Cubes. This is your best work since you played a groomsman on the two-part "Walker Texas Ranger" wedding episode . But "Sharknado 3" did not stop at Cuban.
