Ever wish that your toys would come to life? Last night's Saturday Night Live entertained such a scenario. Wait until you see what happens when this kid gets his wish for his toys to be alive...
Chris Pratt plays the classic 80s cartoon character He-Man, while Taran Killam plays ThunderCats' Lion-O. Both are toys that were wished to life by one lonely kid in last night's Saturday Night Live episode. Only, instead of showing up like Woody and Buzz Lightyear, all enthusiastic and self-aware, these two dudes showed up brimming with super-strength (and super-urges) and completely clueless about the world around them. Later, Ariana Grande shows up as She-Ra to liven up the party even further.
The above video is one of a few highlights from last night's episode. Guardians of the Galaxy's Chris Pratt took his first turn as host. Another highlight from the episode was when Pratt played Todd, a single guy at a bar who takes an interest in Aidy Bryant, a woman who's clearly been exposed to Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda."
Those who've seen Chris Pratt rap "Forgot About Dre" already knew the guy had some talent with the art form, but who knew Aidy Bryant could rap?
With a new season comes a new "Weekend Update" host. Cecily Strong is out and Michael Che is in. It seems like Che needs a bit of time to settle into the role, so let's reserve that critique for a later date. In the meantime, I liked the almost stand-up comedy approach they took to some of the guests who visited the news segment. Including, SNL newcomer Pete Davidson.
And Saturday Night Live writer Leslie Jones...
