Saturday night’s (April 17) edition of “Saturday Night Live” featured a handful of highlights, including a costume-happy performance by Ke$ha, a funny opening monologue by Ryan Phillipe and a gut-busting sketch called “Mort Mort Feingold, Accountant to the Stars” (which the titular character offer tax advice to celebrities like Robert Pattinson, Susan Boyle and John Edwards — whose marital status had gone from “married” to “disgusting”).
But tucked into the end of the show was an incredibly sharp sketch sending up the Insane Clown Posse’s “Miracles” video, a clip that becomes more viral and talked-about by the day. The sketch surrounds the premiere of the new video from Thrilla Killa Klownz called “Magical Mysteries” (which follows up previous efforts like “Curb Stomp Your Enthusiasm”). The clip borrows the low-fi graphics of the ICP original and introduces a whole new plethora of things to be confused about.
“What is Alaska?/ Who is Brazil?/ Isn’t a volcano just an angry hill?” the pair rap during the song. Other “magical mysteries” addressed by the duo: Where the sun goes at night, why pants are different than shirts, a pair of horses, the power of erasable pens and how suitcases always know where to meet you after a flight.
The key moment of the sketch hinges on the key moment of the original “Miracles” video, where Shaggy 2 Dope earnestly asks, “F—in’ magnets/ How do they work?” The Thrilla Killa Klownz answer to that particular line is “F—in’ blankets/ How do they work?”
