tv   midnight With Chris Hardwick  Comedy Central  April 19, 2016 12:01am-12:32am PDT

12:01 am
>> chris: it's 11:59 and 59 seconds! this happened on facebook! last year, real-life wax figures johnny depp and amber heard-- committed a major blunder down under when they brought their two doggies into australia without declaring them to customs. australia has very strict laws about letting dogs into their country in case they're not dangerous enough, they have to be quarantined for ten days and then they intoxicate the dogs and outfit them with poisonous pwarbz, and protection. the depp-heards finally made nice with the land of plenty though by releasing an extremely natural and not-weird apology video on facebook: just a regular couple like you
12:02 am
and me talking to a camera as themselves that they clearly love doing. let's see this video. >> a wonderful island with a treasure trove of unique plants and animals. >> it has to be protected. australia is unique. you disrespect australian law they will tell you. >> tproebgting australia is important. >> guard everything -- >> see just like you or me. just like us. this is how we would do this. total normal couple. what voice was he doing? was that sober keith richards? there is a sub reddit called no stupid questions. someone posted, what is going on with johnny depp and his daughter in australia? [laughing]
12:03 am
>> chris: now hopefully the video drives home the's emergency that you have to declare everything to australia. so comedians, what do you declare to the land down under? >> chris: annan. >> i will show my blooming onion. >> chris: mr. flula. >> i was concerned that a cute surf instructor brody will steal my fiance. >> chris: okay, ben. >> i declare that's a not nice my dick is incredibly skinny. >> chris: i declare it's time to start "@midnight." [cheers and applause] >> chris: welcome to @midnight. i'm chris hardwick. i'm your host and guyed.

[cheers and applause] >> chris: ripped from today's internet headlines, it's "rapid refresh." here is a carefully recorded inventory of the internet's stock room.
12:05 am
"ghost in the hell no." last week the internet got its first look at the movie remake of anime favorite "ghost in the shell" and people can't stop talking about the casting! the roll of kicking japanese cyborg major motoko kusanagi will be played by notable japanese actress, scarlett johansson. now, the movie might still be good, but why did they do this? did the studio misread scarlett's last name as johan-san? i don't know how they made this mistake. between this, emma stone in "aloha," and natalie dormer in "the forest," we almost have enough actresses for an all-white-female "seven samurai" reboot! let's really get behind this, guys. come on. it's time. [ applause ] so, since apparently studios will cast who ever as whatever, comedians what is another controversial casting choice. >>ñoep

[ applause ] >> chris: just wanted to let you know i like this.
12:10 am
there are 30,000 more people behind me. perfect. >> chris: that's the end of hashtag wars. send us your #beforeyoutube and tag them @midnight to keep the game going. we'll be right back. our tweet-of-the-day from last week's hashtag war was sent to us by @lpizzle. well done! every day you read headlines about businesses being hacked and intellectual property being stolen. that is cyber-crime. and it affects each and every one of us. microsoft created the digital crimes unit to fight cyber-crime. we use the microsoft cloud to visualize information so we can track down the criminals. when it comes to the cloud, trust and security are paramount. we're building what we learn back into the cloud to make people and organizations safer. ♪

@midnight. it's time to play, "dunce like nobody's watching." [cheers and applause] the internet is great at cultivating amazing dance crazes like gangnam style, the dab and of course, the whip and nae nae. the problem is, as soon as i learn to do them, ellen degeneres, the local news, and countless other mom-centric media outlets drain them of their cool like a vampire in high-waisted jeans. so comedians, to stay on top of things, i'm going to show you some internet dances that could be the next big thing and, for 250 points, you're going to answer questions about them. first up, the erotic dance moves of morris. ♪ ♪ [laughing]
