Hanukkah began on Sunday, which for those celebrating the religious holiday means it’s time for family, friends, reflection, food, and trying to figure out the perfect gift for the people in your life. They say it’s better to give than to receive and in the latest episode of Hack Into Broad City, we’re reminded that receiving gifts can be really weird.
Show creators and stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer have wrapped filming on the fifth and final season of Broad City, but thankfully they kept cameras rolling for the holidays. The duo shot what is likely one of the last episodes of their viral series Hack Into Broad City, which in the past has given Jacobson and Glazer the chance to comment on current events including President Trump’s inauguration, Small Business Saturday, Columbus Day and more.
In this week’s episode Abbi and Ilana star as their on-screen alter egos, with the pair opening their Hanukkah presents though Skype. While Abbi’s present for Ilana was undoubtedly purchased with a 20 per cent off coupon from Bed, Bath and Beyond(ce), Ilana’s gift was…well, we don’t know what Ilana’s gift was and neither does Abbi.
If you do plan on celebrating the holidays this year, Abbi and Ilana have got you covered—especially if you find it difficult to navigate parties. The pair shot a helpful guide that includes tips and tricks for surviving a non-denominational holiday and New Year’s Eve party. Follow at your own discretion.
Season 5 of Broad City premieres on January 24 at 10 p.m. ET.
