Despite New York City's occasionally troubled subway system, we only know of one instance in the recent past where commuters dealt with, um, sharks
In this clip from the forthcoming Syfy original movie, Sharknado 2: The Second One
, Ian Ziering
and Mark McGrath
face down a threat considerably more dangerous than a panhandler or persistent busker – a massive shark.

Sharknado 2: The Second One
premieres July 30 on Syfy. Until then, keep your eyes on the water and maybe also on the tracks; you never know when a sharknado will strike.
