On The DL

Jun 16, 2017

We're benched this final round, where every answer has the initials D.L. For example, if we asked, "Who hosted his final episode of 'Late Show' in May, 2015," the answer would be "David Letterman."

Mall And Oates

Jun 16, 2017

Say it isn't so...we rewrote hit Hall and Oates songs to be about stores in the mall. We understand if you can't go for that.

AHA!

May 26, 2017

In this final round, every answer contains the letters A-H-A in consecutive order, somewhere in the answer. For example, if the clue was, "Ashton Kutcher replaced Charlie Sheen on this CBS sitcom," the answer would be, "Two and A HAlf Men."

Wisdom Of The Crowd

May 26, 2017

It turns out that the Tiny Desk Contest isn't the only competition Tank and the Bangas vocalist Jelly Joseph has participated in. Jelly tells us about making Jennifer Lopez tear up on "American Idol," then we invite her to play a round of Wisdom of the Crowd. Jelly has to determine whose wisdom she trusts more: a recent live audience we polled or, the wisdom of puzzle guru Art Chung.

Then the band joins her onstage to play their song "Walmart."

What & Where Did I Eat?

May 26, 2017

In this game, contestants help Ophira remember what she ate and where she ate it. The trick is, wherever she goes, she only eats foods that rhyme with her geographic location. For instance, if Ophira said, "I ate a spiral-cut Honeybaked while getting baked in the capital of the Netherlands," the answer would be, "You ate ham in Amsterdam."

Mystery Guest

Take Me To Church

May 12, 2017

We took the Hozier song "Take Me to Church," which compares falling in love to going to church, and rewrote it to be about other cheap date ideas. Makes total sense!

Are We There Yet?

Apr 28, 2017

In honor of our long flight from Brooklyn to Phoenix, this final round is called, "Are We There Yet?" Every answer contains something that sounds like a method of transportation. For example, if we said, "This astronomer was the original narrator of the science show, 'Cosmos,'" you'd answer "Carl Sagan..." which has "car" in it.

Things With Wings

Inspired by the 1980s band from Phoenix, Arizona, house musician Jonathan Coulton takes us under his wing for the Mr. Mister parody the world's been waiting for! We rewrote their hit song "Broken Wings" to be about things...with wings.

A Patriotic Finale

Apr 14, 2017

Philadelphia is where America's Founding Fathers wrote The Constitution, and to celebrate that, we made a final round where every answer contains either the word RED, WHITE or BLUE. For example, if we said, "Fairy tale character who just wanted to visit her grandma," you'd answer, "Little Red Riding Hood."
