Video from summer camp shows Abbi’s competitive side in ‘Broad City’

Abbi (Abbi Jacobson) channels her days at summer camp in the “Game Over” episode of Broad City (Season 3, Episode 3).

In a series of summer camp-style games with her coworkers from the gym, Abbi ends up going competitively overboard, which prompts her friend Ilana (Ilana Glazer) to remind her of a date: August 4, 2002.

That was the date Abbi was captured on video ruining a game of Red Rover at Camp Kweebec. As is often the case on the Comedy Central comedy, the camp is real – Abbi Jacobson went to the Pennsylvania camp as a kid – but the video is not.

The video – titled “Demon Girl ruins Red Rover” – is shown at the end of the episode. In it, a young Abbi goes crazy in a game of Red Rover and then runs off into the woods.
