It worked for Betty White, so now, inevitably, comes the next celebrity’s Facebook campaign to get invited to host Saturday Night Live.” This time, it comes from a star somewhat younger but no less funny than the esteemed Ms. White–our favorite pastry-guzzling blue Sesame Street resident, Cookie Monster.
He’s taken all the right steps to announce his candidacystarting with the requisite Facebook group, called, fittingly enough, ”Cooking Monster Should Host Saturday Night Live.” And he’s posted a hilarious audition video, which you can watch on the Facebook group page, in which he tries his hand at several SNL staples, including a monologue (of sorts), sketches, and Weekend Update. He’s even appointed himself musical guest host, too, in the guise of Cookie Gaga.
After starring on the same show for 41 years and counting, we agree that it’s time for Cookie Monster to get some SNL love. Watch the video and ”like” the group here.Add a Comment
