If you’re hoping for a Sharknado 2 chainsaw scene to rival the grand finale of the original film, you’re going to have to help pay for it.

The Asylum — the studio behind the gloriously cheesy Syfy hit Sharknado and its upcoming sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One — is asking fans to raise $50,000 via IndieGoGo to film a “bonus scene” that they promise will involve “sharks, chainsaws, and chainsaws being used in the vicinity of sharks.”

Here’s their pitch: “You guys made Sharknado the most culturally relevant film of last year. Now we want you to be able to say that this time, you actually had a hand in making the film. You’re welcome!”

In the campaign video below, producer David Latt tells potential contributors that the scene will only be shot if the studio reaches its $50k goal. Only donors will be privy to what the scene is (until someone inevitably leaks the details online) and receive behind-the-scenes video and diaries from the set. Perks at different pledge levels include “sponsoring” a shark in the film ($45) recording a scream to be used in the film ($120), and receiving a walk-on role plus credits ($5,000).

The campaign runs through May 30. Sharknado 2 premieres July 31 at 9 p.m. ET on Syfy.
