If you haven’t noticed, this season of SNL has been the best one in a while, and this weekend’s episode continued the trend. Man of our dreams Ryan Gosling was the guest host, and it was magical. There were a few particularly great sketches, so pay attention:
It’s almost Christmas, so SNL took advantage to write this incredible sketch where Ryan and Vanessa Bayer are a couple that take Santa a little too seriously. Basically, they’re two psychos at a Christmas party, and lucky Vanessa got to make out with Ryan while dancing on a coffee table. Just watch it, you won’t be sorry.
Three people get interviewed by the government after being abducted by aliens. Two of them actually had a pleasant experience, but things weren’t so great for power-lesbian/Betch Kate McKinnon. This was one of the best moments of the night, because everyone on stage couldn’t stop laughing. Like, seeing Ryan Gosling struggle to keep his shit together on national TV is a priceless gift.
Here, Ryan plays a dad at his daughter’s birthday party, and one of the little girls (Aidy Bryant) won’t stop flirting with him. So basically us in a nutshell.
So please SNL, have Ryan Gosling back whenever you can, and keep up the good work.
