SNL Did A Skit About Montreal Last Night & It Was Brutal
Complete with bagels, traffic jams and some French Canadian swears.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then consider us totally blushing after last night's episode ofparody.
The famous sketch comedy show had its fun withwith its mock morning news show, Bonjour, Hi! live from Montreal, a city that hosts said represented "the best parts of Canada and the worst parts of France."
The skit is available to watch on the Global TV website.
The fake news show was hosted by Jean-Lawrence (also known as John-Larry) and Anne-Marie.
They also had their American correspondent, who was quarantined in Canada due to COVID-Dix-Neuf, Jean-Fred (pronunciation subject to opinion) and Awa Sene, the show's reporter on the ground in Toronto on "."
SPOILER ALERT: He wasn't there.
The sketch included some classic when-in-Montreal things, like bagels,, lovers from Cirque du Soleil and French Canadian swears.
As for the French, when discussing politics, Jean-Lawrence and Anne-Marie mumbled in French to one another, seemingly getting quite into it.
When asked what he thought after the discussion, Jean-Fred replied, "Yes? Or no? I'm sorry I don't speak whatever French this is."
And like any Québécois spectacle, it couldn't end without a rendition of a song by, herself. The French-Canadian journalists broke out into a cover of her classic hit, "That's The Way It Is."
We're just flattered to know SNL is paying attention to our little metropolis.
