Saturday Night Live takes aim at Walt Disney World
Saturday Night Live had fun with Walt Disney World last night:
Drake played a Disney World cast member at Hollywood Studios' Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular and did a solid job capturing the hopeless enthusiasm that theme park employees have to bring to the show when working with an audience volunteer, uh, doesn't go so well.
It might be worth noting that Saturday Night Live airs on NBC, which is owned by Disney's archrival NBCUniversal, and the whole audience volunteers schtick traditionally has been more Universal's thing. But Universal's been backing off that in recent years, so hey, why not spoof the Disney show?
What did you think?
I'm betting that "I am Rihad" soon will become as despised by Disney CMs as "Andy's coming!"
I am Rahaat!
I thought this was really funny. Drake brought a lot of energy to the performance and really sold the hopelessly enthusiastic. Wish the rest of the show was that good.
Haha, that was pretty funny. That shot to the head with the boulder got the biggest laugh out of me, I wasn't expecting that lol.
I watched the episode last night, and as a whole the episode was one of the less funny ones this season. The Disney skit, along with several others, just were not that funny. Now, had drunk uncle been pulled up for the skit.... then maybe it would have went viral.
Universal dumbed down the volunteer aspect of the shows. Many times when they asked a volunteer to change into costume, a stunt double is the actual person who does the tricks. I assume this is due to liability. This happened several times in their special effects show in USH.
Great premise. Dumb sketch.
That sketch reinforces my choice to give up on SNL long ago.
I saw the sketch live, and thought it was typical SNL faire. The premise was pretty funny, and Drake did a good job as the lead--The writers kept him busy throughout the night, only giving him the Weekend Update slot off.
I didn't find it to be very funny. I think a smarter way to make fun of Disney would be to take a couple jabs at the Magic Bands.
Thanks for the reminder of why I stopped watching
Why do comedians think when they yell a line it's more funny. It's not.
