The internet was abuzz with footage from the epic Madonna and Drake kiss on Monday so of course it was a hot topic of conversation on Monday night’s @midnight. Chris had some feels about the new Terminator trailer and spoilers. This required answers a la Arnold Schwarzenegger from our first set of contestants, Arden Myrin, Mike Lawrence and Guy Branum. And the internet really delivered after the weekend because Wu-Tang Clan was a topic of discussion in divorce court. #CollegeMovies were a thing that can take you back. LinkedIn remains terrifying.
Megan Neuringer, Adam Cayton-Holland and Kurt Braunohler joined Chris on the eve of Tax Day and the hashtag wore paid homage to the holiday everyone in the US celebrates with #5WordMoneyProblems. As it was also Equal Pay Day, Neuringer had some excellent ringers for the battle. Chris revisited the Wu-Tang Clan cheating debacle and the group took to social media to confuse us all a little more. The group went through some indecision as to whether boys were “rat” or “fat”. It was…odd. And then they all ran a smear campaign on a tiny child who cried over his new competition for the office of president: Hillary Clinton.
Ian Edwards, Chris D’Elia, and Fahim Anwar hit the stage on Wednesday night and started the show with anal. Yes, that really happened. Then they talked about Dennis Quaid. Then there was an angry giant penis who stole Chris’s lectern. It happened. A lot of things happened on Wednesday night okay? Sandwiches were really important during #Bandwiches. Then they visited YouTube and discovered that Don Draper pulled a Hardwick before he was a star. It was awesome. Also Coachella is going on.
The week finished with Tim Minchin, Rhys Darbie and Rich Fulcher on stage. Chris spoiled The Empire Strikes Back (appropriately because WHO DOESN’T KNOW THAT?). Matt Mira was inspired by Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 when he was coming up with the final hashtag war of the week #AddBlartImproveAMovie. They discussed artistic interpretations in tattoo art and cartoons. And England can be really confusing.
