It’s been 30 years since America’s children began to fulfill their most burning desire: to face-plant into a giant, slime-filled foam pie crust in front of their dads and America. In Double Dare’s honor, Nickelodeon’s The Splat will stream a “special live edition” of the show from Comic-Con International in San Diego. The program kicks off Friday, July 22 at 9:30 p.m. PST on Facbook Live. Original host Marc Summers, who returns after a 16-year DD hiatus, will wrangle the red and blue teams as they subject themselves to classic obstacles like “the Wringer, Down the Hatch, the Human Hamster Wheel” and, of course, the Double Dare Nose. Summers will subsequently host a mix of new game segments and classic episodes during TeenNick’s Double Dare Week, which begins Monday, July 25, and ends whenever they finally find all those goddamn flags. Who dropped those flags everywhere? They got into all the gigantic foam pizzas and sludge slides. What a mess. They must miss them all terribly.
