Tiffany and Debbie Gibson have a cat fight in “Mega-Python vs. Gatoroid”

Pin it

Yes, you read that right. Some genius over at SyFy (I am not being sarcastic, this person is an actual genius) decided that somewhere in between coming up with a stupid new name and producing Mansquito 4: Havana Nights, the channel should pit the two 80s pop rivals against one another in a made-for-TV movie about giant reptiles. And, naturally, they should have a cat fight, complete with cake smashing, face slapping, and wineglass shattering. Before I show you the (wonderful) clip, please check out this breakdown of the film’s premise from the Hollywood Reporter. It’s the best thing you’ll read all day:

Gibson will play a fanatical animal-rights activist who frees illegally imported exotic snakes from pet stores, sending them into the Everglades, where they grow to mega sizes. Tiffany will play an overzealous park ranger who uses dangerous methods to save endangered alligators.

Yes. So, now that you have the proper background and context to really understand and appreciate the scene, let’s go to the video:

Please — please — don’t let that be the last time they use one of the two women’s hit singles as the source material for dialogue. Look, I’ll even help:

PARK RANGER TIFFANY
Wait, animal rights activist Debbie! The fever’s in the air. Oh yeah,
it’s there! Don’t underestimate the power… of the mega-python!

Voila.
