Want to warm up your cry-laugh muscle before you see Girls Trip this weekend? (Hey, it’s never a bad idea to limber up before you cry-laugh your way through a comedy.) Well, Tiffany Haddish’s story about Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith, and a swamp tour will treat you right. On Wednesday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Girls Trip star regaled the late-night host with probably the best anecdote involving Groupon, a swamp, a $20-a-day rental car, jumping jacks, and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song that any of us will ever hear. While filming the critically acclaimed movie in New Orleans, Haddish and the Smiths spent one of their days off together talking about, driving to, and taking a tour of a swamp. Every turn the adventure takes is more ridiculous than the last, and the story will make you fall in love with the stand-up comic over and over again.
It is a story so funny, so weird, and so thrilling, you will wish it went on forever. Without giving away too much, here is one of the many highlights: Pinkett Smith learned that the word “Groupon” is not actually another word for a private boat you rent and hang out with a group on. (Yes, really.)
Without further ado, let the swamp tour Groupon story begin. First, here is Haddish’s account:
Raring for more? Pinkett Smith recounted the Groupon swamp tour on a late-night talk show, too, and it is an absolute delight. Here’s what what she said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon:
Hey, Captain Hiller? If you wanted to present a late-night talk show host with your version of the swamp tour Groupon tale, no one would be upset.
