SNL’s Grocery Skit Is the Ideal Pandemic Parody

Saturday Night Live

Fans of Saturday Night Live may not have expected it to come back during social distancing, but the skit show’s cast is making it work by filming from home. Aidy Bryant and Kate McKinnon’s joint SNL grocery store skit from this past weekend is the pandemic parody that will lift your spirits.

In the skit, Bryant and McKinnon portray owners of a grocery store that has limited inventory due to the pandemic, but they’re doing the best to get rid of the stock they do. The punch line? What’s actually in stock. From a complete and total roast of Dasani water to a fictional “Impossible Lobster” to a gag about how no one likes Hawaiian pizza, Bryant and McKinnon bring some light-hearted humor to the pandemic.

While everyone else may be talking about Brad Pitt’s Anthony Fauci impression during the show’s cold open, Bryant and McKinnon’s sketch is just as much of a must-see.

If you want more of Saturday Night Live‘s at-home performances, all of the skits have been uploaded to the show’s YouTube channel.
