The following comedy video comes from the Ellen DeGeneres Show. It was uploaded to YouTube on September 19, 2013. This segment is part of Ellen’s daily monologue. It is called “Heads Up! These Are Imposters.”
Someone pretending to be Ellen did an aerial routine as the intro to this monologue. She said it was her homage to Pink, who is interviewed on this episode.
Ellen is complaining that a lot of programmers are ripping off her Heads Up! game app. This is a game where you try to get a friend to guess words, and it records a video of the person as he or she is trying to guess.
Ellen launched the Heads Up! app on the show. She played the game with Owen Wilson and Lucille Ball. Lucy loved it, and Ellen loves Lucy.
Ellen says Tilt Up is a knockoff. Heads Up Charades is another one. Then, there is a Russian knockoff of Heads Up!
Ellen says if you want to play the real game, it is just called “Heads Up!” It is better than the others, and it’s the only one she makes money off of.
