Mr. Big Stuff
“Your Love” is my favorite sketch of the season, so it’s no surprise that I really liked “Mr. Big Stuff,” too. The women circling Louis while singing the Jean Knight classic was funny enough as is, but when it began to build, with Louis listing all the reasons he DOESN’T think he’s Mr. Big Stuff before accusing the ladies of projecting all their insecurities onto him, it became something special. Plus, LOUIS DANCE.
Now’s when things get weird. “Doctors Appointment” never got much funnier than the sentence “Darth Vader action figure up my butt,” although, to be fair, that’s pretty funny. But next time I’m outside, I won’t be able to NOT look at everyone’s butt, wondering if they’ve got a Vader (or General Grievous!) stuck up there.
I’m not sure if I hated this sketch, or loved it. It’s definitely one or the other, but I feel like I’m going to need a week to process what happened. There’s pajamas…and foreplay…and Louis breaking…and I don’t know.
Chris for President
YES. Chris Fitzpatrick for high school president…and PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA 2016 (we’re gonna need someone to clean up the “kissing Bieber” mess that Obama left behind — it smells like stale maple syrup and magazine cologne). The latest Kyle Mooney lowercase-digital short appealed to a very certain group of people, of which I consider myself a member, mostly because the only thing I love more than Getty Image watermarks is Temporary Flawed. They’re totally twisted.
The fact that Louis was clearly reading the cue cards the entire time somehow helped the joyfully stilted “Romantic Speech.” Louis wants Aidy Bryant back, except no, he wants to stop an increasingly angry Baby Jessica before she takes out her revenge on the world, except no, he wants her to hide his bags, except no, he’s unable to say the word “man” correctly, except no, “shhhhhut up.” Oh Louis, you had me at LoboLand.
“Stay with Me” by Sam Smith
Are we sure Sam Smith isn’t British Finch from American Pie?
