Watch ‘Broad City’ Spoof Nicki Minaj, Missy Elliott, and Drake

The main characters on Comedy Central’s Broad City generally spend their time stoned and broke, so it’s appropriate that they’d celebrate a check for “eight fucking thousand dollars” in a grand way. Stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer do their best impressions of Missy Elliott and Nicki Minaj in a fantasy sequence that opens the March 19 episode, expertly mimicking the former’s classic garbage-bag outfit and the latter’s over-the-top style.

Check it out above and catch Broad City at 10 p.m. on Wednesdays.
