Seth Meyers Swipes Old Loveline Bit With ‘Fake Or Florida,’ And It Still Works (Video)
Seth Meyers updated an old “Loveline” weird-news quiz — “Germany or Florida?” — for Late Night, proving that there’s almost no way you can really go wrong making fun of weird news and Florida. The gimmick is simple enough: is this story real weird news from the Sunshine State, or is it completely made up? It’s a cute game-show spoof, and lord knows there will always be plenty of material for this segment.
For instance, we predict that the next time Meyers does the bit, it will have to include this story of a gentleman in Key West who was arrested while trying to hide some cocaine in a flower pot, and told the officers, “I don’t understand. I thought cocaine wasn’t illegal in Florida.”
