Watch 'SNL's Bowen Yang Kill It as Gay Oompa Loompa, Daddy Long Legs

Bowen Yang on SNL

If you're not watching Saturday Night Live, maybe you should be. Not to watch every skit but possibly head to YouTube and take in some of the sketches featuring and centering around the LGBTQ+ cast members. Names like Kate McKinnon and Bowen Yan consistently knock it out of the park. Last night, during the Weekend Update, Yang did it again as a proud, gay oompa loompa working under Timothee Chalamet's Willy Wonka.

In addition, in a "Bug Assembly" titled skit, Yang appeared as Daddy Long Legs. Held at Waymouth Middle School, the assembly featured students dressed up as various bugs, introducing their attributes to the audience.

"I'm Daddy Long Legs," Yang introduced himself with a voguing flourish. When it came to diet? "And what does Dadd Long Legs eat? Boys, boys, boys!" Another dance break.

The act became so absurd that Keenan Thompson even began to chuckle mid-skit.

By Sunday morning, following the episode's airing, Yang was trending on Twitter.
