Kristen Wiig is the guest host this week on SNL, with musical guest The xx stopping by as well. If that’s not enough to get you to watch the show, SNL also did the Mannequin Challenge this week. In case you don’t know what that is, we put together an informative video about it twelve freaking days ago. Twelve days? It feels like an eternity, considering how done-to-death the challenge has become since then. I think it’s about time to call it quits on the mannequin challenge, right?
Wiig got the cast and crew to join her in freezing in creative poses around Studio 8H. The most impressive parts have to be Aidy Bryant with her gum bubble, which just stays inflated. Pete Davidson balancing on the hind legs of a chair is also impressive.
Mikey Day and Bobby Moynihan also reprised their roles as skeletons. They’re part of it. Kristen Wiig manages to break the scene though, to indicate where to click and subscribe.
Here’s the original video from SNL’s YouTube channel:
It’s good to see SNL having some fun. We all need a little fun in our lives again. But at the same time, SNL was the first show to humanize Donald Trump by letting him host. So his election is kind of a little bit their fault.
