The Ol’ Barbershop
There’s a reason why Key and Peele’s LIAM. NEESONS. characters aren’t a trio: they’re funny enough by themselves; they don’t need a flat-voiced white dude to halt the excitement. Every time Jay and Kenan got going, either through their stories or with a well-timed visual gag (Jay drinking the blue liquid, Kenan’s over-the-top haircut), the camera cut to Bruce and the momentum died. There was no need for him here. Unlike MVP Sad Red Foxx.
Boy Dance Party
If “Boy Dance Party” hasn’t already inspired a million copycat videos (“NO HOMO BRO, I’M SHAKING MY SACK IN YOUR FACE FOR THE YOUTUBE CLICKS”), it will. The non-Digital Short digital short has all the right ingredients to be SNL‘s most viral clip in some time, namely, it has Bruce Willis doing this.
I’d say it’s going to help Shake Shack as much as “Lazy Sunday” did for Magnolia, but it doesn’t need it.
Weekend Update: Brooks Whelan
Brooks Whelan, which is a reall good name for a Southern spy, is one of the new cast members who’s spent the least amount of time in front of this camera this season. In his solo debut, he’s given a Weekend Update spot to discuss his tattoos, and how if you get a Red Hot Chili Peppers tattoo as a teenager, you’re going to regret said Red Hot Chili Peppers tattoo as an adult. “Well, I like to make her cum, to the rhythm of the drums” is for the young, not the employed.
I’m offended. Not that Bobby Moynihan’s talents are wasted on as weak a character as Kirby, or that you can’t use “Kitty Purry” when that’s already the name of Katy Perry’s cat. No, I’m upset, because when I’m given an Armageddon parody, I expect a guest appearance from Steve Buscemi. #NoDisrespectToBenAffleck
