The cult FXX sitcom, created and developed by Rob McElhenney and Glenn Howerton back in 2005 out of their frustration at not getting any successful roles through auditions, has grown from a fringe comedy into one of the biggest, and officially the longest-running, live-action sitcoms on TV. Season 14 of the show ended in 2019, and season 15 is due to debut in 2021.
Besides the core trio of McElhenney (Mac), Howerton (Dennis), and Day (Charlie), the show also features Kaitlin Olson (Sweet Dee) and Danny DeVito (Frank), as well as Day’s wife, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, in a recurring role. Always Sunny follows the adventures of the main characters, who are all owners or employees (depending on the season) of Paddy’s Pub in the titular city. A group of narcissistic, idiotic, and terrible people, the characters are a parody of what can happen to people if they indulge their worst impulses without any real consequences. One of the show’s best running gags involves the opening titles, which often appear just after a character has said a line that totally contradicts or plays humorously into, the episode title.isode title.
Now, Day has posted an Instagram clip from Tuesday’s contentious Presidential debate, in which President Donald Trump says, “Bad Things Happen in Philadelphia.” Day attaches the signature Always Sunny title card at the end of the brief clip, with that as an imagined episode title, with the Always Sunny theme tune playing over it. The post is captioned, simply, “Vote.” You can see the video below:
Besides the obvious connection to the show’s location, the title would be perfect for an episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, given that bad things inevitably happen in the city when the gang is around. Day wasn’t the only celebrity to mention the debate that took place on Tuesday, with Fantastic Four co-writer Jeremy Slater joking that the event was the worst thing he’s ever seen, even though he wrote the awful film. At the same time, a Twitter account connected to Sacha Baron Cohen’s upcoming Borat 2, posted a video trolling Trump ahead of the debate.
The event had a significant impact on the TV and movie world, and with two more debates still to come, as well as a Vice-Presidential debate, who knows what else could emerge? It wouldn’t be a surprise if It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia names one the episodes in season 15 “Bad Things Happen in Philadelphia” in response to the president’s comments during the debate.
