This weekend, Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus returned to Saturday Night Live as host for the third time. Since SNL is on NBC it should come as no surprise that there a little bit of Seinfeld made it into one of the sketches, and it even included another alum from the iconic comedy series. Beyond that, this last episode in a batch of three in a row actually turned out to be the best in the trio, though the pre-recorded sketches definitely overshadowed the live sketches this time.
Read our full review of the Julia Louis-Dreyfus Saturday Night Live episode below.
God Is a Boob Man – Finally, Saturday Night Live takes aim at these over-zealous, pandering, senseless religious films that offer no cinematic value and just have a moronic agenda. The sad thing is this movie isn’t much of an exaggeration from what really unfolds in a movie like God’s Not Dead or in the sequel in theaters now. The use of Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song” just knocks it out of the park.
New Mercedes – This commercial parody is so expertly made that it feels like a real Mercedes commercial. It’s such a simple and stupid idea for a commercial, but it’s so fantastically executed that I was laughing really hard at it, especially the continued shots of the batteries being ejected from the car. It was like a classic commercial parody from the 90s.
Heroin AM – This commercial parody actually aired before the Mercedes ad, and it’s another prime example of stellar execution. It looks and feels just like a real prescription ad, but just about over the counter heroin. My favorite part was the breaking down of the ingredients and the testimonies from other family members.
