SNL Takes on Jason Collins, FOX & Friends in Cold Open: VIDEO


SNL mocked the right-wing news machine's attempts to downplay the significance of NBA center Jason Collins' coming out last night in a FOX & Friends skit that opened the show.

"Can we please stop calling him a hero."

"Yeah, exactly. Since when does telling your embarrassing personal secrets make you a hero? I prefer Asian ladies. I’m a hero."

"I use prescription deodorant on my entire body. Give me a medal!"

  1. To be a parody they say the things I kinda think, he's not a hero we don't know anything about him that makes him stand besides the fact of being gay, he looks nice, but he came out and everybody put him on the lead for gay rights like he wanted, or have any merit to do so, you know what I mean ?

  2. Not bad, but nobody did this better than French and Saunders.

  3. Her Gretchen Carlson should have her own TV show.

  4. BBWAAAAAAA! i LOVE when SNL takes on Fox and Friends - it's spot-on.

    Alas, even the online gay blogosphere has been awash in "so what? who cares? he's not a hero" comments. yet, as usual, always from the completely-anonymous commenters.

    oh, the delicious irony :)

  5. I love some of the "corrections" at the end:

    The California wildfires are not a soccer team.
    Jason Collins was not turned gay by a Washington Wizard.
    The NRA is not a branch of government.
    Plan B birth control is not masturbating.
    Kanye West is not an African American vacation destination.
    Anytime minutes don't let you call the future.
    4 and 3 are not basically the same thing.

  6. K: I'd rather be anonymous that totally over exposed. It's your private irony. Your "delicious" entertainment.

  7. what was that? i couldn't hear you because you're in the back of a closet and wearing your burqa.

  8. Eh. It's hard to parody something that already a joke.

    Where was Gretchen Carlson's tilt-headed inquisitive-poodle face? You know, the one where she asks a totally moronic rhetorical question then tilts her head like a dog asking "What'chu talkin' 'bout, Willis?"

    What about when one of them says something really hateful but it's delivered in that really chirpy morning-show tone and the others nod like bobble-head dolls while you're thinking WTF?

  10. Kiwi: You reek of tattoo generation.

  11. The key to Jason Collins is if he stays in the limelight. If he simply "disappears" he's not really role model material. Hopefully he has one or two more seasons in him.
