Broad City stars show Detroit some love


If you've never watched Comedy Central's ahh-mazing stoner comedy Broad City then you are not living life to your fullest potential. Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer co-created and star in the show where they play fictionalized versions of themselves (kind of like Curb Your Enthusiasm) trying to juggle life one day at a time in New York City.

The show, which is in its third season, has developed a cult following of millennials who live for the duo's free spirit nature and don't give a damn attitude. So naturally when this writer was scrolling through the 'Gram and noticed that Abbi and Ilana posted a photo holding bottles of Detroit's very own cold-pressed, raw juice DROUGHT, I had a mini panic attack that can be described through a series of Broad City gifs. Enjoy.  





In the Instagram photo below, Abbi and Ilana are proudly showing off the super cool DROUGHT bottles and tell their followers that if they "are ever in Detroit, DROUGHT is a must."

It's hard to tell if these Kweens are actually in Detroit (if so, we will be stalking until we find them) or if DROUGHT sent them some promo bottles (p.s. DROUGHT, if you are reading this, please confirm) and they are just sharing the love. REGARDLESS, we love you Broad City forever, and ever.
