I know what you’re thinking: Is this real life?

Yes, yes it is. As it turns out, we just barely missed out on one of the greatest cultural phenomenons that SyFy Channel could have ever produced.

The world came this close to being treated to seeing the one and only Mad Hatter, LSU coach Les Miles, in a film literally centered around the prospect of a killer ghost shark. It’s pretty much just as plausible as Sharknado, and we’re pretty sure it’s going to blow up on Twitter anyways.

But could you imagine if Miles was involved?

As the photo above indicates, the man looks pretty slick in a suit. Perhaps about as slick as a young Anthony Hopkins?

The Mad Hatter himself seems to believe so, and that’s good enough for us.

Check out the trailer of the new movie below. If it had had Miles, and possibly Tara Reid of #Sharknado fame, this bad boy would be even better. Or far, far worse. Either way.
