Billie Eilish, Kate McKinnon Star in SNL’s Christmas Ad

Last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live It marked the return of Kate McKinnon and the debut of host Billie Eilish, as the show brilliantly used both performers in an impressive pre-recorded sketch called The Lonely Christmas Announcement. The short introduces us to a sensitive teen (Eilish) who invites her elderly lonely neighbor (McKinnon) across the road to Christmas dinner, and the two communicate via notebooks in Taylor Swift’s “You Belong With Me” music video. But things take a frightening turn as the elderly woman reveals increasingly disturbing details about her life, culminating in several spiraling twists that she just can’t spoil. Although Mickey Day makes a memorable look, this sketch is basically a duo of McKinnon and Eilish, who both do their best comedies of the night here. See the full graphic above.
