'Broad City' celebrated election day with a witty mini exclusive episode reminding Americans to go vote
Comedy Central released a special episode of 'Hack into Broad City,' showing Ilana and Abbi taking a break from Russian language lessons urging viewers to go and vote
November 6 marks the midterm elections so Comedy Central released a special episode of 'Hack into Broad City,' showing Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson enjoy a little Skype chat from their respective apartments reminding viewers to take part on election day while in the middle of a Russian language lesson.
“Next up,” Abbi announces, “‘So you definitely hacked the election.'”
In the mini-episode, we see Abbi reading the English words and phrases from notecards that also include their Russian translation at the bottom. Ilana, in turn, has been getting pretty much every single translation right since, as she boasts, “I’m a Russian Jew, it’s in my blood.”
“If I’m going to successfully infiltrate Russia, I’m going to have to speak the language to seduce a cultural influencer — plus, you know how dictators love their p**s play,” Ilana says. In their minute of exchange, the duo had forgotten about the election and only when Abbi reads off one note about hacking the election that they both stare wide-eyed at each other's computer screens and scream, "The election!" before rushing off to cast their vote.
This video released on YouTube gives fans a nice dose of fun before 'Broad City' returns for its fifth and final season on January 24 besides serving as a plea for all Americans to get out there and make their voices heard. 'Broad City' joins the likes of other TV shows including 'Pretty Little Liars' sneak peek on Monday that featured a twist ending telling fans to go vote followed by the skit SNL did about midterm elections.
The fifth and final season of Broad City premieres on Thursday, January 24 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, followed by the premiere of brand-new series 'The Other Two' on Comedy Central.
