SNL’s Bowen Yang Steals Show As Iceberg That Hit The Titanic
“But nobody is canceling the ocean!”
Saturday Night Live paid tribute to the 109-year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic in a new Weekend Update bit when the iceberg that hit the ship (Bowen Yang) joined Colin Jost to discuss his album called Music.
While Yang only wanted to talk about his character’s music, Jost wanted to discuss the famous ship until Yang finally gave in.
“First of all, you came to where I live and you hit me,” he said. “It was midnight, I was chilling. Then I hear this Irish cacophony behind me. Like, not to be offensive but [mimicking Irish music]… I’m sorry, that’s what it sounded like. And before I turn around and go like ‘what,’ half my a— is gone. Which was my best feature, and I’m literally injured and all anyone cares about is 40 or 50 people died or whatever.”
“Well it was 1,500 people,” Jost corrected.
“Why are you attacking me?” Yang replied. “Why are people still talking about this? They bumped into me, I said ‘I’m sorry,’ which is insane… but whatever.”
“What did the autopsy say? They iceberged? No. They drowned, b—ch. That’s not me, that’s water,” Yang added.
The Iceberg then went on to promote his new album with “no skips.” He sang his single, “Lover Boy,” resulting with loud applause.
Now when will SNL promote Yang to a full-time cast member?
