This may be the most tenuous Thanksgiving for families in the history of modern day Thanksgivings. And doubt the Election 2016 will be the made reason. Thankfully, Saturday Night Live delivered a trio of stellar sketches to help us all connect in our pain and misery. And because we love you, we’ve thoughtfully embedded them here. The first features Cecily Strong in a Target commercial that encourages people to visit its story– but not exactly for their offerings inside. The second sketch employs the brilliant Kristen Wiig, the former cast member who hosted the Saturday Night Live this weekend, as Sue (“The Surprise Lady), one of Wiig’s old characters. The third sketch below was cut for time and is the most bizarre but maybe the funniest.
As a little bonus we found a pair of older sketches featuring Wiig as The Surprise Lady. The first we find Wiig unable to handle the excitement when Playskool employees (Steve Buscemi, Vanessa Bayer, Paul Brittain, Bill Hader) gather in the break room to surprise a coworker who’s about to get a big promotion. And the second we find Chris (Josh Brolin) revealing to his friends that he’s planning on proposing to his girlfriend (Casey Wilson) and Wiig must contain her excitement, nearly ruining the surprise when the suspense gets the best of her. Enjoy
