Broad City Stars Step Into the World of Lara Croft for Rise of the Tomb Raider Commercial

When it comes to exploring the crazy and unique world of New York City, few shows do it as hilariously as Comedy Central’s Broad City.  The stars of the show, Abbi and Ilana, trade in the concrete jungle for icy terrain in the latest commercial for Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Featuring Abbi and Ilana as characters in the game, the commercial mixes live action and in-game visuals.  Watch below and see what happens when the videogame world ends and the real world begins.

For a behind the scenes look at how the commercial was filmed and to hear how Abbi and Ilana feel about the game,  check out the video below.


My Opinion:

I’m a fan of Broad City and it’s cool to see them featured in a Tomb Raider commercial.  I imagine they were chosen to reach a different kind of audience that might not be aware of the game.
