Oh, Syfy. I thought you had a little class. But I also thought you were losing touch with what viewer audiences wanted to see, and it’s clear I was wrong on both counts. Ladies and gentlemen, please behold the only reason why Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid was made, the ultimate fight of 1987, the fight scene between former ultra-annoying pop singers Tiffany and Debbie Gibson (that’s Debbie Gibson Tiffany as the tall blonde, and Tiffany Gibson as the boobs redhead). Clearly, Syfy knows what the people want, and that’s for two ex-famous but attractive celebrities to fight and rub cream pies all over each other. The only thing I wonder is if audiences actually need to bother watching the entirety of Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid now that this clip has been released.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
