Hilarious Time Traveling Bong trailer takes Broad City’s Ilana Glazer on an adventure

Comedy Central is getting turned up this month with the premiere of Time Traveling Bong, a new three-part miniseries. The network released a trailer today, previewing the drug-fueled fun to come. Starring Broad City‘s Ilana Glazer and Paul W. Downs, the event series follows the duo as they embark on an stupidly hilarious adventure that drops them in various different points in time and space.

In the trailer, the duo find themselves in the possession of a special bong. “Smoke once to travel; smoke again to return,” they’re told. The directions are too tempting for them to ignore, so the cousins, Sharee (played by Glazer) and Jeff (Downs), decide to try it out, expecting to be able to come right back. Of course, it wouldn’t be much of a movie if it worked out that easily for them.

After an a scene reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland‘s trip down the rabbit hole, it’s clear that the time traveling bong works. Unfortunately for Sharee and Jeff, a man smashes the bong on the ground, leaving them without a way home. They can smoke in and out of different points in the space-time continuum, but they don’t seem to have any control over their destinations.

In an entertaining sequence, we see them seemingly bringing Gangnam Style to another time, facing a massive dinosaur, and doing a lot of screaming. Best of all, they even share their Deep Thoughts. “Who are we to say what history should and shouldn’t be?” asks Jeff. Noticeably absent, however, are the snacks.

The trailer unfortunately doesn’t hint at how they’ll attempt to get home, either, so we’ll have to wait and see. The miniseries seems like the perfect candidate for the “oh, hey, we didn’t actually go anywhere” discovery, but it’d be great to see a more original solution. Time Traveling Bong is directed by Lucia Aniello, who co-stars.

Time Traveling Bong (naturally) premieres on April 20 on Comedy Central.

Which Marvel villains should be in Tom Holland’s Spider-Man 4?
Tom Holland in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The MCU has plenty of upcoming projects that fans are excited about, but a potential fourth entry in Tom Holland's Spider-Man series is near the list's top. 2021's Spider-Man: No Way Home ended with Holland's Peter entering a new phase in his life. Forgotten by the world and with no one left by his side, Peter is now closer to the perpetually down-on-his-luck version from the comics that fans have come to know and love. The ending is the perfect setup for a new Spidey adventure, with Spider-Man acting as the street-level hero he was always supposed to be. But who should he fight in his new adventure, especially now that he has no Avengers or Avengers-adjacent allies by his side?

Well, the possibilities are limitless. After all, Spider-Man has some of the best and most iconic villains in Marvel comics, and while many have already appeared in the Web Slinger's numerous live-action projects, some remain untouched by the film industry. From fearsome crime bosses to chameleonic supervillains, these infamous foes would make worthy enemies for Holland's Spider-Man.
