People Think 'Sharknado' Is Real Thanks To These Fake Hurricane Matthew Pics

By

As Hurricane Matthew unleashes its fury on Florida, a handful of people have been braving the 100-mile-per-hour winds to snap pictures of the storm.

However, it seems some of these people are sharing more than just photos of the rain and flooding on social media.

Several Twitter users have posted photos showing giant sharks taking advantage of high water levels by swimming in the flooded inland areas.

Just look at this huge shark hanging out in the middle of a road.

If seeing a shark swim right up to your front porch isn't terrifying enough...

...someone also posted a picture that shows a bunch of finned creatures casually doing a little shopping inside of a waterlogged mall.

If you ask me, these insanely terrifying shark sightings can only mean one thing.

"Sharknado" is actually happening IRL.

Now, before you hide from Jaws in a secret, shark-proof bunker for the rest of your life...

Hurrishark would've been such a better movie than sharknado. More realistic and scarier. — Gunnar Juve (@Gunnar_Juve) October 7, 2016

...a lot of people are speculating on whether or not these shark sightings are real or just the product of skillful Photoshop.

After doing a little research on the matter, it turns out these "Sharknado"-eqsue scenes are actually just a hoax. I know, I'm not sure whether I'm relieved or disappointed, either.

However, I think it's safe to assume it's only a matter of time before Hurricane Matthew inspires yet another shitty "Sharknado" sequel.

Damn I think there going to film another Sharknado movie now #HurricaneMatthew pic.twitter.com/5x8NG5FJZa — Swaggy (@fields_perry) October 7, 2016
