So awkward! NJ 101.5 staff plays ‘Chardonnay Go’ board game
What happens when you turn a funny, viral video into a board game? Let's just say the results can be both hilarious and pretty awkward.
Recently, hosts Dennis Malloy and Judi Franco as well as producers Chris Swendeman and Dan Tantillo along with Program Director Eric Johnson joined comedian and fill-in New Jersey 101.5 host Dena Blizzard to play a new board game she's developing called "Chardonnay Go." The game is based on her viral video of the same name, which took social media by storm last year.
The "Chardonnay Go" video is a spoof of the popular "Pokemon Go" game app. In the video, Blizzard is seen running around her neighborhood in an effort to capture glasses of wine.
Since the video was released, Blizzard's popularity has increased with the continuation of her off-Broadway show "One Funny Mother" as well as appearances on "LIVE with Kelly" where she was a finalist in a competition to co-host the daytime talk show.
So when Dena told us she was developing a board game based on 'Chardonnay Go' and that it was geared toward adults and could be really awkward, we knew we wanted to give it a try.
