Girls Trip’s breakout star Tiffany Haddish detailed a hilarious account of taking Will and Jada Pinkett Smith on a Groupon swamp tour on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night.
During filming in New Orleans, Haddish told the couple at a dinner that she was going on a Groupon swamp tour alone the next day. When they replied that they might accompany her, she didn’t take them seriously. The following day, Haddish did what most of us would do before going on a swamp tour alone: she got really high. Not long after, she received a call from Jada, who told Haddish that she and Will would be coming with her.
Haddish ended up picking up the famous duo in her $20-a-day rental car and driving them (while high) to the location where the tour would start. She says of the experience, “All I could think to myself [was], ‘Tiffany, you need to be as careful as possible. You don’t wanna be the bitch on TMZ that killed the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.’” After they arrived, Jada asked Haddish why there was a large crowd of people already waiting by the swamp. When Haddish explained that they all most likely had Groupons, Jada appropriately asked, “What the fuck is a Groupon?”
The actress was under the impression that a “Groupon” was a boat that one could take a group of people on; needless to say, she and Will were recognized immediately. Still, they thanked Haddish for bringing them around “regular people.” Although if you’re on a Groupon swamp tour in New Orleans, you’re probably not “regular people.”
You can watch Haddish tell the story above. Girls Trip stars Haddish, Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah and Regina Hall, and is out in theaters tonight, July 20. Watch a trailer for the film, as well as Jada’s account of the same story on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, below.
