If charades wasn’t challenging enough, Jimmy Kimmel
decided to throw a wrench in the game on Monday, when he invented “Long Distance Charades.”
Standing on the roofs of two buildings in Hollywood, Kimmel and actor Zach Galifianakis competed against Kristen Wiig and Owen Wilson in the challenging game.
Kimmel and Wiig stood on one rooftop while Galifianakis and Wilson were far away on the other roof, watching their partners through binoculars. They took turns acting out various movie titles as Kimmel’s longtime assistant Guillermo Rodriguez refereed using a megaphone.
As it turns out, it’s incredibly difficult to play charades when you’re an entire city block away from your partner.
Galifianakis was unable to guess Driving Miss Daisy and Wiig missed Wilson’s Aliens. But Knocked Up and Top Gun were successfully identified, leading to a final “Sudden Death Round."
