'There Will Be Bingo': Comedy show challenges the Internet to #FloridaAMovie



Florida is an endless source for humor, so of course comedian Chris Hardwick’s panel of comics on last night’s episode of @midnight celebrated the March 3, 1845 anniversary of the day Florida became the 27th state to join the United States of America.

The show, which uses Internet-inspired humor to play improv games with comedians, celebrated “our most beloved swamp with a governor,” and Hardwick challenged the panel in the nightly game of Hashtag Wars to #FloridaAMovie, for example, Raiders of the Lost Bath Salts.

Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Casey Anthony,” comic Megan Neuringer jumped in.
Stop or George Zimmerman Will Shoot,” said actor and comedian Chris D’Elia of the NBC sitcom Undateable.

Then the Internet stepped in and it was glorious:
The Wolf of Walmart
The World According To AARP
A Walker To Remember
It’s A Wonderful LifeAlert
Total Recount
There’s Something About Melanoma
Action Jacksonville
Brian’s Thong
Meet All the Parents
Orlando Magic Mike
There Will Be Bingo
Golden Girls Gone Wild
The Shawshank Early Bird Coupon Redemption.

No one can make fun of Florida better than people FROM Florida so you can join in the game yourself on Twitter using the hashtag #FloridaAMovie and tagging @midnight. The show will pick a winner that will appear just before the commercial break of the next night’s Hashtag Wars game.
