The Try Guys they tried so hard that they got their own “Saturday Night Live” sketch this week.
NBC’s comedy institution dedicated the first post-monologue bit to satire surrounded by YouTube stars after parting ways with team member Ned Fulmer after an “internal review” of his “consensual work relationship,” according to a statement sent last week to the executive. Try Guys Instagram account. Fulmer’s exit made national news, and “SNL” didn’t miss the buzz about the former Buzzfeed stars.
In what seemed to be a political episode to begin with, host Brendan Gleeson and panelist Ego Nwodim played a CNN reporter and actor respectively, but Gleeson had to interrupt a broadcast from the White House to report the latest news on Try Guys.
“SNL” cast members Mikey Day, Andrew Dismukes and Bowen Yang showed the remaining three Zach Kornfeld, Keith Habersberger, Eugene Lee Yang, who continued to undermine the statement of CNN: “We are no longer working with a white woman. Try Guy Ned.”
Nwodim’s CNN host, perhaps like many people who encountered the Try Guy news this week, did not really understand the controversy, or who the Try Guys are.
“You have to remember the power dynamics,” Gleeson’s character said nonchalantly to him. “He was a testy boy and he was a Food Boy.”
“The whole story is that your friend who has a side chick didn’t tell you?” Nwodim’s personality was clear.
Yang and Sun were on the verge of breaking character and laughing during the photo, which parodied recent videos from Try Guys about the scandal. In a later sketch about medieval Europe, the Sun appeared on stage again.
The Try Guys, which boasts more than 8 million YouTube subscribers, began as a BuzzFeed webseries in 2014 that described the founders Zach Kornfeld, Keith Habersberger, Eugene Lee Yang and Fulmer’s zany actions in trying new things – experiencing labor pains, baking without a recipe. , taste-testing everything on the fast food menu and driving drunk (under the supervision of an expert), just to name a few. In 2018, the four left BuzzFeed and started their own creative company to continue the Try Guys brand.
