Best skit in a LONG time:
...this morning i read that people on twitter hated it.
Yes. Some anonymous idiots. Fuck 'em.
How is that funny?
I see I'm still not missing anything.
It satirizes this over-the-top Toyota commercial:
if the current SNL does a sarcastic Mohammed bit i bet ISIS does not retaliate since beheading the current cast and writing staff would be a kindness to the US viewers.
She definitely has her fathers facial features.
Especially the eyes.
Okay, thanks, that helps.
Was SNL still supposed to be funny? I thought they were moving more towards a humorless format...
Of course it is goofing on silly white people.
Lorne should be beheaded then burned and then ass raped.....by ISIS
I'm so old I can remember when SNL writers despised having their sketches called "skits" by critics & civilians alike.
"We write sketches", they'd say. "Carol Burnett does 'skits' ".
With the notable codicil that every last one of Carol's sketches was actually funny! SNL has never batted much more than .200
Jimmy Fallon is the new Carol Burnett only unfunnier & gay.
I took it as both satirizing the commercial and also making fun of delusional, non-Islamic youngsters from The West who have allowed themselves to be recruited by ISIS. SNL did something edgy for once, and it's getting a reaction.
How were you able to be race-offended by that?
Predicable humorless liberal drivel.
I actually really liked this one too. I liked the subtle acting of Killam and Dakota of that cliche father-daughter maudlin college drop-off to bait you in for the ISIS reveal.
I've been saying this for years. I don't understand why SNL even bothers with the "LIVE" sketch aspect anymore?? They might as well just make like 8 exterior digital shorts and pre-tape the whole bulk of the bits because its the clearly the only thing that they can execute anymore or gets WWW buzz.
would be better if they managed to be both edgy and funny like charlie hebdo did.
agreed. if you can't be funny then its just whining.
A fatwa has been declared on Lorne Micheals.
