Dwayne Johnson Hosted Saturday Night Live

This past weekend the 42nd season finale of Saturday Night Live arrived with host Dwayne Johnson joining the Five Timers Club, just like Melissa McCarthy did last week. Not only did Johnson get his honorary jacket, but he was joined by fellow Five Timers Club members Alec Baldwin and Tom Hanks, and he picked one of them to be his running mate when announcing his candidacy for president in 2020.

Watch what happens and see the best and worst sketches from the Dwayne Johnson hosted Saturday Night Live after the jump.

The Best

World’s Most Evil Invention – This is one of the most shocking sketches to be on Saturday Night Live in awhile. I honestly cannot believe they got away with this punchline on network television. If you haven’t watched it yet, I’m not going to spoil it, but suffice it to say that Dwayne Johnson’s character has certainly crafted the most evil invention ever. Also, I’m wondering if White Castle approved of their mention at the end of the sketch. There were White Castle commercials during the telecast, so it makes me wonder if they approved some kind of product placement in a sketch and didn’t demand approval. Or White Castle is just a cool company and understand that some of the best comedy is subversive.

WWE Promo Shoot – This sketch was done last time Dwayne Johnson hosted, and it was with Bobby Moynihan back then too. It’s the same premise as last time with Dwayne Johnson’s wrestling character using personal information to take jabs at Moynihan’s character rather than the usual trash talk. What really sells it is Bobby Moynihan’s heartbroken and tearful reaction to being humiliated.

Rap Song – At first I thought this was going to be a straight-up music video with a new comedic song, but instead it’s lampooning the high amount of rappers that appear in single songs. It’s a bit of a simple premise, but it’s the characters themselves and their names that make it funny, including a special cameo of a character from a previous sketch that I won’t spoil if you haven’t watched the sketch yet.
