On last night’s episode of Broad City, Philly’s Abbi Jacobson suited up in a garbage bag to pay tribute to Missy Elliott’s iconic video for “The Rain [Supa Dupa Fly].” The clip is a dream sequence in a bank set to the tune of Drake’s “Started from the Bottom.” Pretty funny stuff.
Broad City — produced by Amy Poehler and written by and starring Jacobson — was recently picked up by Comedy Central for a second season.
Last night on The Tonight Show, regulars Jimmy Fallon and Questlove teamed up with guests Lena Dunham (Girls) and Hugh Dancy (Hannibal) for a game of Pyramid. Fallon used the opportunity to plug Questo’s portrayal of a dead body on Law & Order: SVU, which airs tonight at 9 p.m. on NBC.

Last night on The Tonight Show, The Roots’ Questlove and Kirk Douglas got together for their recurring Black Simon & Garfunkel spoof to perform a cover of Lorde’s “Royals.” The New Zealand pop singer has had lots of local coverage lately, actually. A few weeks ago Bruce Springsteen sang the song at a concert in Auckland.
Knerd Knews hosts Beth Kellner and Scott Johnston got dressed up like their favorite Star Trek characters and hit the Convention Center during the Philadelphia Flower Show. Needless to say, it wasn’t the kind of convention they were looking for.

Tina Fey sat down with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Monday night, and after the interview the pair took part in a new segment called “Lip Swap,” where their mouths are digitally swapped and they have to talk for each other. It’s pretty hilarious/creepy. Check out the video above.
Cinefix gathered up a bunch of kids to have them re-enact some of this year’s Oscar-nominated flicks. Check the video below to watch the tot-sized interpretations of Captain Phillips, Gravity, American Hustle and more. The only thing cuter would be if kittens re-made the films. (Please do that, Internet.)
