Maya Rudolph, Jim Carrey swat flies and Mike Pence's lies in SNL VP debate sketch
Good superheroes save the day, but only the greatest crusaders (like Wolverine, Wonder Woman, and others) receive origin stories on big screens that establish their iconic legacy. While the stunning fly that landed on Mike Pence's head during Wednesday's Vice-Presidential Debate didn't exactly resolve the global chaos of 2020, Saturday Night Live's Cold Open this week was a crazy theory for the humble beginnings of the winged creature, the pence turned into something a viral ridicule.
The sketch opened with Kate McKinnon, who portrayed debate host Susan Page, who introduced Harris (Maya Rudolph) and Pence (Beck Bennet) before theorizing that "one thing is certain: If anything is trending on Twitter tonight, it will be so be it. " one of the people involved in this debate. "
Harris sets the stage by hilariously recounting their heavily memorized facial expressions in response to Pence's answers to Page's questions: "As he speaks, I'll stare at him like I'm in a TJ Maxx, and a white lady asked me whether I work here, "says Rudolph, contorting her face with pursed lips, forced smile, sideways glance and framing her head with fashionable hands. "I'm going to fix my face so you have no idea what I'm thinking, but every black woman at home knows exactly what I'm thinking, and some of the white women ... and all of the gays!"
We later see Joe Biden (Jim Carrey) watching the debate from home and eventually working out a plan to teleport onto the stage to save Harris and "the soul of this nation". Recalling the plot of Jeff Goldblum's 1986 horror film The Fly, a tiny beetle also invades the device, turning Biden into a fly that lands on Pence's head.
When Page Harris asks if she would like to tell Pence about the mishap, she replies, "Oh no, I'm good. Looks really good, Mike! Keep it up!"
We then see that Biden's genes are fused with both the fly's body and Goldblum's personality: "God created dinosaurs, dinosaurs became Republicans, Republicans created Trump, Trump destroys God!" He suspects he is channeling the delivery of Goldblum's branded lines from Jurassic Park.
The sketch ends with another fly landing next to Biden to convey a special message: "I'm Herman Cain, who was reborn a damn fly," says Kenan Thompson. "Those fools, Trump and Pence, killed me, man! They invited me to a rally without a mask and said, 'Everything is fine, Herman' ... the White House doctors checked me and said, 'Everything is okay, Herman! I'm gone three days later! Don't trust that white devil because of that 'Rona! "
Back in the debate stage, Harris closes the moment by immediately slapping Pence on the head with a bright red smack.
