Broad City video: Tomb Raider spoof challenges Abbi and Ilana

Posted on

Comedy Central

Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer will return to Comedy Central when Broad City season 3 debuts in February — but first they have to climb up the side of a mountain. The two channel Lara Croft as they brave a treacherous tundra in a new two-minute clip spoofing Rise of the Tomb Raider

The parody mixes gameplay into footage shot on a green-screened stage with Abbi taking the role of the young Croft’s 45(-ish)-year-old companion. Armed with ice picks, Ilana climbs up the side of the mountain, while dodging icy debris, an oncoming avalanche, and a pesky neighbor. Watch and you’ll see what we mean. 

The network, which partnered up with Xbox to make the video, also posted a behind-the-scenes look of how they brought this parody to life. Watch that clip below.
