This brilliant digital short follows the president-elect for a day, who imagines that he looks like Cena. Best of all: His larger-than-life hands shrink whenever his ego is threatened by the so-called biased media.
Kyle Mooney and Leslie Jones are great in this short film about a budding romance between the repertory players. Lorne Michaels eventually chimes in to champion the relationship. His reason? He’d really like for Kyle to lose his virginity.
This vice presidential debate sketch quickly morphs into Donald Trump “app-la-gizing” on CNN in wake of the Access Hollywood bus tape scandal, and Hillary Clinton celebrating what many thought would be the final nail in her competitor’s coffin.
Bryan Cranston reprises his role as Breaking Bad‘s Walter White, who is chosen to run the DEA under President-elect Trump. Donning Heisenberg’s signature pork pie hat, the villainous character once again declares that he is the one who knocks.
Dave Chappelle brings back a bevy of Chappelle’s Show characters — including Tyrone Biggums, Silky Johnson, Chuck Taylor and Lil Jon — and gets to play the menacing Negan in this parody of AMC’s hit zombie drama.
This commercial — which serves as both an indictment of the Emmys, and a commentary on the “dramedy” genre — is, in a word, perfect. It mocks the decision to keep nominating shows like Transparent for Outstanding Comedy, and CBS for its failure to produce more cutting-edge half-hours.
This commercial parody works entirely because of the visuals. Advertised as a line of toys for sensitive young men who “long to be understood,” the youngin’ playing Emma Stone’s son sits hunched over his plastic well meant to “wish upon, confide in, and reflect by.” The look on Bobby Moynihan’s face as he realizes his son is telling the well a secret is priceless.
Hanks is hilarious as a Trump supporter who, instead of being nervous about being the only white contestant, winds up doing better than his African-American competitors — that is, until it comes time for Final Jeopardy.
The return of David S. Pumpkins is inevitable, but Hanks & Co. (the “Co.” being his B-Boy skeleton dancers played by Moynihan and Mikey Day, who are proudly “part of it”) will never top this Hall of Fame-worthy sketch, which is sure to be featured in any and all “Best of SNL” specials for the foreseeable future.
The show’s best post-election sketch parodies Love Actually’s iconic “To me, you are perfect” scene. In it, Hillary turns up at the door of an electoral-college voter and uses an absurd number of note cards to ask that she reconsider casting her vote for Trump.
