Second Chance Theatre: Jon Bovi, Starring Will Forte and Jason Sudeikis


[ Regal music plays ] [ Cheers and applause ] -Hello and welcome to
“Second Chance Theater,” where we give new life
to sketches that were cut from “Saturday Night Live.” Tonight, the tale
of two musical lyricists with an unquenchable desire to compose the next great
Christmas classic. Their passion for music
only surpassed by their love of opposites. You’ll see what I mean
in a moment. We now present
the cut-from-dress “Weekend Update” feature “Jon Bovi”
from December 12, 2009. Enjoy. [ Cheers and applause ] -“Weekend Update”

for the holiday season, including offerings
from such diverse artists as Bob Dylan, David Archuleta,
and Sting. Here to comment,

-Bad to be front! [ Laughter ] -So, you guys… For those who don’t, you guys

they eat an earful of this. 2, 3, 4 —

a Christmas album coming out. It’s classic Jon Bovi with, you know,
a Yuletide twist. -I used to be an 1/8 Jewish. -Used to be? -I lost it after
I was circumcised last year. I gave the rabbi a nice tip. [ Crowd groans, laughter ] [ Laughter ] -Yeah. Yeah. -Dandy —

-Uh-huh. Yeah. -Oh, okay. Just checking.
-Yeah, yeah, yeah. No. Now, here’s another song
off of our Christmas album. -It’s from
our Heart opposite band. -Heart?
-Yeah, Heart. Which we called, if you —

-Santa’s birthday. ♪ Santa’s birthday ♪ -[ Laughing ] I can’t… can’t — can’t help but notice
kind of a pattern here. -Oh, yeah?
-It doesn’t seem like you’re doing Christmas songs. It seems like all you’re doing is just tacking
the word “Christmas” onto the end of your songs.
-What?! -[ Screams ]
-What are you talking about?! Oh, that is some left-brain BS. You know what —
that’s a fair hit. -What a good listener!
-You’re good listener, Seth. Yeah, no, okay! Okay! Wh–
Hey, how ’bout this? You know the song “Love
Lift Us Up Where We Belong” by Jennifer Warnes
and Joe Cocker? -Mm-hmm.
-Okay. Good. Well, this is our version
from our opposite band Jennifer Peacenes
and Joe Cocker. -Wait. Jennifer Peacenes I get,
for Jennifer Warnes, but no opposite name
for Joe Cocker? -No, his name is perfect.

-Oh, wait! I’m sorry! -I was kind of with you guys… -Yeah, we were in the moment.
-…right up until “Coca sober.” -Right.
-Coca sober. How is “Coca sober” the opposite
of “mountain high”? -Oh. Yeah, no.
I’ll walk you through it. Okay. So, here’s the thing. Sober is the opposite of high.
You know, we all know that. We know it too well.
-Yeah. -And the opposite of mountain, which is the first part
of Mountain Dew, okay, is Coca, which is the first part
of Coca-Cola. [ Laughter ] [ Applause ]
It’s right there. -I’m sorry, but that’s, uh… That’s ridiculous.
-[ Laughing ] Oh, what? -You would have gone
with Mr. Pibb. Let’s give it a shot, okay. -♪ On a Mr. sober ♪ -Yeah, that’s great.
