The Strange, Homoerotic Kyle Mooney Sketch Cut From 'SNL' This Week

Typically, Saturday Night Live features one of Kyle Mooney’s bizarre sketches each week. Sometimes they work, and sometimes they completely bomb, but they never really fit in with the overall tone of the show. They’re absurdist sketches that often spoof little pockets of culture that aren’t particularly well known, and while I like some of them, they’re often better suited to late night Adult Swim or YouTube.

This week’s was even weirder than usual. It’s kind of a riff on poorly produced afterschool specials or very special episodes of simple-headed sitcoms with over-the-top morality lessons. In this case, Beck Bennet plays a guy who uses a hot wing in order to guilt a character played by Andrew Garfield into some inappropriate touching.

It’s not very funny, but it is very strange.

I understand now why they reran the Bird Bible ad this week.
