‘In an ‘SNL’ sketch with Kristen Wiig, Will Forte’s MacGruber fails to diffuse a bomb.
MacGruber’ has returned! On Jan. 22, Wille Forte brought back the beloved character for a hilarious ‘SNL’ routine.
MacGruber was welcomed back to Saturday Night Live by Will Forte, 51! The show launched immediately into the skit, which starred Will as the title character and former co-star Kristin Wiig as Vicki in a Bank Control Room, right after the opening speech. «This structure is going to blow sky high in 60 seconds if we don’t destroy the C4 explosive!» Will’s MacGruber heard Vicki’s declaration.
«Don’t worry, gang — if we work together as a team, we can achieve this.» I understand that the COVID scenario has completely shifted the game, therefore we must proceed with caution. Over the alarm, he remarked calmly, «We’re in a confined area with very restricted airflow.» «Wonderful idea, MacGruber!» As she handed him the can, Vicki said. They were then given their masks, which he burned on fire in a can.
«What are you doing, MacGruber?» Vicki expressed her confusion, stating that she «truly wanted to wear that mask.» Will’s MacGruber said he could «finally breathe» after reminding them that he’s «vaccinated and relaxed.» The only issue? Vicki was perplexed because the vaccine card read Fizer, not Pfizer, and she wondered what vaccine he was acting on. «Fizer would be Puh-fizer if it had a P in front of it.»
He later revealed that he had not been immunized. «All right, OK, I’m not one of you Karens — I’m not getting that silly injection,» he added. «I don’t want the government to implant a tracking device in my genital area… He then added, perplexingly, «I have a brain, and let me assure you, I’m fully anti-semitic.»
He then reminded them, «We may not agree on this hoax vaccination, but one thing we do agree on is that I know how to disperse explosives,» but it was too little, too late, as the bomb went off. Whoops!
Will’s role spawned a tremendously popular Super Bowl ad in 2009, in addition to his debut SNL sketch with MacGruber. Lorne Michaels developed a film featuring Will as MacGruber and Kristen as Vicki a year later. The legendary character was most recently revived for a Peacock series that premiered in December and has been renewed for season two, according to Will’s opening monologue.
MacGruber made a second visit on the broadcast on January 22, assuring his friends that everything was under control (all while wearing a cut-out face mask). «Don’t worry — I heard your concerns, and I’m following all the regulations,» he replied, explaining that the hole in his mask intended to keep pollutants from «breathing in.»
«There’s no need to be afraid; I’ve done extensive research and am now following the science.» In a weird series of actions, he then swallowed numerous medications and drank bleach through a straw. He admitted to having horse worms and herpes rather than COVID. On the worm predicament, he said, «Punked!» and proceeded to eat them (turns out they were spaghetti).
«It’s the bomb!» Vicki then brought it up again. «My knowledge is 100 percent QAnon mad –» he was cut short as the device exploded again. Oops!
