Here’s your run down of all you missed on @midnight this week!
Kathryn Hahn, Adam Pally, and Brett Gelman started the week out with a Mother’s Day postmortem and some mockery of sports ball. #HipsterCrimes made me giggle because mustaches are funny. The contestants this week were hardcore bad at spelling when it came to internet words, but then they did Morgan Freeman impressions, worked in marijuana, and totally redeemed themselves. Kathryn Hahn then talked about lighting farts on fire. It was charming.
After learning that Snoop Dogg thinks Game of Thrones is real, Chris introduced Tuesday night’s contestants, Annie Lederman, Al Jackson, and Jim Jefferies. The whole group did some reminiscing about AOL and fired some millennials in the language of the internet they actually understand. #ScientificTVShows gave us all the puns, and people put weird sounds on the internet. They also put babies on the internet, and we always question people’s sanity for those decisions.
Paul Feig, Jessica Chafin, and Jamie Denbo took to the stage on Wednesday night and all agreed with Chris on the complete ridiculousness of MRA boys and their problems with Mad Max: Fury Road. This lead into #GenderSwapAMovie which had me cackling; there were some very important questions about where people on the internet were going. And then Chris reminded the internet of something very important: DO NOT insert yourself into tragedies through social media. It is seriously uncool.
Mamrie Hart, Rove McManus, and Flula Borg were cracking us up from the very opening moments of the show. Chris made it so I can never read Oh The Places You’ll Go ever again without being horrified; #Vegasin5Words was less traumatic but there were a lot stripper jokes to laugh at still. Eurovision made an appearance, and contestants discussed butter, but I’ll never hear golf commentary the same way again. DadBod continues to be a thing but the contestants have some updates and suggestions to be better.
