Saturday Night Live knows who our Mommy and Daddy are!
In a sketch from this past weekend’s SNL, hosted by Pedro Pascal, we got to see the sexy The Last of Us actor as the Daddy we’ve all been calling him for years.
The sketch started out with Pascal as a high school teacher named Mr. Ben who’s giving an assembly on student technology use. At first Mr. Ben warns against things like cyberbullying, but he soon tells the students to stop making fancams of him.
“No, skinny legend! Why are you doing this?” a student played by Bown Yang asks.
"Because you have made thousands of fancams of me and I'm not sure what they mean!" he replies!
The teens shout back with tons of Gen Z slang like “you have us in a chokehold,” “you’re so father, period,” and “your foot is always on our necks.”
After Mr. Ben officially bans fancams at the school, the kids finally explain that COVID left them with arrested development. “Mommy works remote all day and doesn’t have time to eat it up no crumbs left, so we made you Daddy and Ms. Jenny Mommy,” Yang says.
Then Ms. Jenny, played by the mommy-licous Sarah Paulson, steps onto the stage. After the students show a fancam of the two teachers together, they finally admit that they’re in love.
“Fine, it’s true,” Paulson says. “He’s Daddy, I’m Mommy, and we’re a happy family. No crumbs left.”
Pascal and Paulson have actually been friends for a long time. Vulture even posted a picture of the two of them way back in 2005! (Check out Pascal’s bangs! This isn’t Daddy, this is a twink!)
Pascal is thickly in his Daddy era. His two most notable roles right now are both as father-figures. In The Mandalorian, he plays a bounty hunter who adopts an adorable young force-user named Grogu, or Baby Yoda. In The Last of Us, he plays Joel, a grizzled man who becomes the father-figure for a girl traveling across post-apocalyptic America.
