Last night, Lin-Manuel Miranda hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time (our recap is coming later today). It’s not everyday that a Broadway star is brought in to host the late night sketch comedy series, but that’s just how big Hamilton has become. In addition to all the musical jokes that were made, including plenty of rapping from Miranda, one of the standout sketches featured an outstanding parody of Stranger Things.
New cast members Mikey Day and Alex Moffat open the sketch as The Duffer Brothers, and they explain that they wanted to get a head start on answering some of the questions fans had after watching the first season of Stranger Things. One of the biggest questions revolves around one of the kid’s parents, who were noticeably absent while the kids were out during all hours of the night. Thankfully, Saturday Night Live brings those parents to life for us, and the result is thoroughly entertaining.
