It’s a song that has generated the most spoofs, and now ‘SNL’ and Matthew McConaughey have joined the fun with a hilarious rendition of Adele’s ‘Hello’ music video. Click to WATCH!
If being spoofed is the highest order of flattery, Adele, 27, must feel honored! The singer’s hit “Hello” was the target for the SNL cast on the Nov. 21 episode, and even featured a outrageous cameo from Matthew McConaughey, 46. You have to watch the video!
The skit, called a “Thanksgiving Miracle,” starts off in harmless fashion with a host of characters sitting around a table enjoying their turkey. However, their conversation soon becomes slightly awkward when controversial topics like Syrian refugees, police brutality, the gender wage gap and ISIS come up. Just your normal Thanksgiving conversation, right?
Well, needing something to break the ice, there’s only one person capable of uniting this divided family. Step forward, Adele! The cast, featuring Beck Bennett, Jay Pharoah, Cecily Strong, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon and Vanessa Bayer break into the British singer’s huge hit as the family finally agrees on something.
However, the real funny moment comes when we break away from the dining scene, and you see McConaughey, donning the famous fur coat from her music video, lip-syncing the song!
It really was a defining moment of another great SNL episode and adds to a number of Adele spoofs, including the Lionel Richie mash-up. If you haven’t seen it, you must watch it now! Ironically enough, Adele did appear as the musical guest on the show, knocking the live audience dead with breathtaking performances of “Hello” and “When We Were Young.” Buy her album on Amazon now!
