Brad Pitt portrayed Dr. Anthony Fauci at home in the second episode of “Saturday Night Live”, in which the musical guest Miley Cyrus, Adam Sandler and many disinfection jokes were seen.
A pitt with glasses who spoke in Fauci’s scratchy voice tried to rewrite false assurances and false statements from President Donald Trump during the pandemic, for example when Trump said that “a COVID-19 vaccine would be released relatively soon. ”
“Relatively soon is an interesting sentence. Relative to the entire history of the earth? Sure, the vaccine will come very quickly, ”said Pitts Fauci, who was sitting at a desk behind a stately bookcase. “But if you said to a friend,” I’ll be over relatively soon, “and then show up a year and a half later, your friend may be relatively angry.”
The result was the second “quarantine edition” of the series, in which previously recorded sections were at home for actors who dealt with the frustrations and touchstones of quarantine life, but of course with one SNL Twist.
Sandler and Pete Davidson have teamed up to ridicule being brought together with the family for a musical duet called “Stuck In The House”. Another sketch included a zoom version of “Law and Order” and another fun zealous fitness that went online during the pandemic was a boast of “eating clean” by preparing a “Clorox juice” purification.
Cyrus, who was sitting by the fireplace with a guitar, played Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here”.
Pitt’s account followed a Fauci interview on CNN when he jokingly said he thought Pitt should portray him when asked to choose between Ben Stiller or Pitt. The Cold Open also included Trump’s far-fetched statements earlier this week about disinfectants and light that were being investigated in the fight against the virus.
“If I hear things like the virus can be cured if everyone accepts the Tide Pod Challenge, I’ll be there to say, ‘Please don’t,'” said Pitts Fauci before breaking the character, taking off his wig and paid homage to Fauci and thanked him.
There were also shocks to Trump’s fight against governors in an outdoor segment with Cecily Strong as Michigan governor, Gretchen Whitmer, who blew up Trump’s handling of the pandemic. Strong’s Whitmer urged continued social distancing.
“We’re not out of the woods yet,” she said, pointing to the area around her. “We will never be. We live in Michigan. “
