Just when we thought that nobody bothered watching Saturday Night Live anymore, Colin Farrell might’ve reinstated public interest with a sprinkle of shade towards the sketch show during the 2023 Academy Awards. Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel descended down from the stage for the part of the show where he puts a mic in the face of audience members to ask questions from “fans” (aka the Oscars writer’s room). After terrorizing activist and human embodiment of world peace Malala Yousafzai, Jimmy stepped up to Colin Farrell to ask a question on behalf of “Joey from Las Vegas,” saying, “Colin, I loved your performance in The Banshees of Inisherin, my question is, what were you saying in the movie?” Colin hit back with, “I’d like him to go on Youtube and check out SNL last night and he’ll have a good idea.”
There are blessed few things in this world that are a simple snack for the mind, body, and soul. And Jason Momoa shaking his money maker to RuPaul’s “Freaky Money” in a half-baked Saturday Night Live sketch called An Extra Christmas Carol is one of them. From Jason’s Land Of Make Believe accent, to his hopeless attempt at making every grain of sugar in his tank shine, to the self-consciously delivered body rolls, we stan a goofy queen. Jason’s “extra ghost”, juxtaposed against a very convincing set, professional costumes and an expertly delivered straight-man performance by Mikey Day, goes down like two buttery, spicy, ginger snaps to the left.
Here’s the skit with a big assist by Kate McKinnon as Tiny Tim who “gets it”.
I want to bury my face in that tumtum something awful. What crimes against humanity do I have to commit in order to be visited by Jason in a shiny lame cape and tear-away pants, being all extra just for me? I would seriously like to know if I just have to be dick to a little kid and grump about Christmas, or if I have to go full genocidal maniac? Okay, maybe I wouldn’t go quite that far, but my morals are flexible when it comes to Jason Momoa.
