Watch Will Ferrell Make the 'SNL' Cast Lose It in This Reality TV Sketch
Will Ferrell's still got it. While his revived George W. Bush impression and deadpan Clown Penis pilot earned plenty of laughs this weekend on Saturday Night Live, it was this reality TV ambush that showcased the best Ferrell, the one whose goal is to make everyone break.
The sketch put the funnyman opposite Cecily Strong as one of the stars of Kings and Queens of Santa Clarita -- cheap face lift, spoiled little pup, and major problem with "chickon" in tow. He was supposed to be catching up with his old Flagstaff bros, but things went south when the "sweet, back-home moment" turned into an opportunity for footage. "Hey, don't you dare yell at my wife!" Ferrell said in a fit of staged drama. "Oh, buddy, don't make me hit you with my dog! Peanut is locked and loaded." As soon as the yelling began, it became a struggle for him and his castmates to keep it together.
I told Lorne after the show that I might have broken during this sketch. A comedy hero and a dog hero and lil ol me with a bad face lift gave me one of my favorite moments foreva eva. Like, this is one of those where on days where I’m not feeling great, I can watch this on YouTube and I’ll start laughing a bunch.
Strong acknowledged the goofs after the show via Instagram. "A comedy hero and a dog hero and lil ol me with a bad face lift gave me one of my favorite moments foreva eva," she wrote.
