The holidays are here and Christmas is right around the corner—but sometimes it feels like the world is falling apart. How do you cope with existential dread and the thought of dealing with your drunk uncle? Well, the cast of Saturday Night Live has the answer: just block everything out.
Yes, that’s right, in a very special musical cold open Kenan Thompson, Cecily Strong, Ego Nwodim, Bowen Yang, and Sarah Sherman share how they keep their cool during the holiday season—in the unhealthiest ways possible. Whether that’s falling into a bad alcohol addiction that gets you banned from Burger King or living in a state of delusion that keeps your mental health in shambles, just block it all out and bury it deep inside your soul…until Christmas.
“But what happens in January?” Sherman asks.
“Oh, then we explode,” Strong sings. “We freak out and threaten our ex. We drink to the point where we contemplate murder and accept Venmo payments for sex.”
