Remember when Family Feud would have celebrity specials on a semi-regular basis? There was even a Celebrity Family Feud series in 2008, which will be coming back in a limited format this summer. But you can’t expect a cast as huge as the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast to show up on daytime TV. No, these superstars were destined for a game show version of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and you can check it out below.
To be expected, this is the most poorly run version of Family Feud that’s ever existed, but that’s part of what makes it a blast to watch. Not only does everyone “cheat” by talking amongst themselves instead of giving solo answers, but Jimmy Kimmel doesn’t seem to be formally aware of how to keep score. Absolutely nothing against Steve Harvey, but let’s make this calamitous version of the show a spinoff soon, can we? And maybe, just maybe, get a stronger adhesive for the backs of those nametags before that happens.
While there wasn’t anything to glean from this about the plot of Avengers: Age of Ultron, we did find out that Mark Ruffalo can instinctively give “trapeze artist” as an answer for a question, and that Chris Hemsworth is aware that yoga instructors wear tights. And in thinking of the worst place to turn into the Incredible Hulk, Robert Downey Jr. is the guy who knows it’s the bedroom (natch), while Scar-Jo thinks “port-a-potty” and Ruffalo says “telephone booth.” Because what?
For everyone out there who knows how underused females are in the superhero world, how much of a groaner was it to see Scarlett Johansson as part of The Mans team? Not that there’s anything negative about being on a team with Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth. But is that weirder than it would have been had the Australian Hemsworth been on The Americas team? These are the kind of non-deep thoughts that late night game show segments provoke, people! I’m also wondering who ends up getting that bike, and whether the $15 Applebee’s gift cards are real.
Avengers: Age of Ultron will hit theaters for what is sure to be a blockbuster debut on May 1, and you can catch more of Jimmy Kimmel Live! every weeknight on ABC. In the meantime, I’m going to get to work on my Drunken 8-Minute Jimmy Kimmel Family Feud petition.
Nick is a Cajun Country native, and is often asked why he doesn't sound like that's the case. His love for his wife and daughters is almost equaled by his love of gasp-for-breath laughter and gasp-for-breath horror. A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.
