We want to know sometimes what Lorne Michaels is thinking when it comes to the decision to delete certain sketches from “Saturday Night Live.” The one that we have in the video below was from this past weekend’s edition featuring Amy Adams as host, and it may actually be one of the best ones of the entire show.
This sketch (first posted by Entertainment Weekly) actually addresses what were some of the biggest issues of the show, which in part included how there was not a whole lot of Christmas cheer, and also how Adams, despite being the host, was rarely in the spotlight.
The theme here was simple enough: Adams receives a guest at her door in the form of none other than Pete Davidson, who holds up a series of signs explaining his feelings for her … and hot dogs … and skeletons … and cooking hams. It’s completely absurd for the most part, and we like how it goes on and on, and that Pete is clearly picking up more cards any time the camera cuts to Amy.
Overall, the sketch does have its flaws, including that the deliver is sometimes a little off, and not every joke lands. Still, it is really fun to see Pete completely try to hold in his laughter the entire sketch, and the one time Adams breaks is worth laughing at in its own right. We’re not going to spoil it here, but it is quite possibly the most immature joke ever, and yet somehow the show still pulls it off.
