Gotcha again, Justin! The Biebs was Target No. 1 after getting arrested for DUI and drag racing in Miami on Jan. 23, and ‘Saturday Night Live’ did not miss their chance to make fun of him.
Saturday Night Live isn’t a show that repeats itself, but they made an exception for Justin Bieber on the Jan. 25 episode. Last week the show mocked his egg-throwing scandal, but this week the material — Justin getting arrested for DUI — was even riper for the picking.
‘SNL’ Disses Justin Bieber For DUI Arrest
Seth Meyers got the first jokes in to lead of “Weekend Update.” Putting up Justin’s grinning mugshot on the screen, Seth quipped, “Well this certainly looks like the face of a guy who’s learned his lesson!” He then added, “Justin Bieber, who was arrested Thursday for drunk driving and drag racing, reportedly asked officers, ‘What did I do?’ and ‘Why did you stop me?’ which will go down in history as the first sentences Bieber didn’t begin and end with ‘Girl.'”
Pretty good, but the best jokes came when “Weekend Update” welcomed on the policeman who arrested Justin. Played by Kenan Thompson, the officer seemed a little too happy to have nabbed Bieber. “I was so happy!” Kenan exclaimed. “It was like finding a swaggy little leprechaun.” We’ll let Kenan take it from here:
I made him step out of the car. Oh, he was mad. He must’ve said the F-word at least ten times! It’s kind of adorable, you know? Like being barked at by a puppy who smelled like Smirnoff Ice.
Now those are the kind of barbs we were expecting! The segment ended with some more mocking of Justin’s stature — “Even when he was resisting arrest, I wasn’t scared. He came at me and I just put my hand on his forehead and let him swing away until he fell asleep. It was kinda sweet!” — and also his street cred — “The boy rented a Lamborghini. Rented it. That is not so gangster. You never saw Scarface going into Avis.”
Sorry Justin, you kind of brought this on yourself.
Justin Bieber Mocked Yet Again On ‘SNL’
After news broke about Justin’s arrest, the writers of SNL were rushing to throw this sketch together, a source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. And until Thursday morning, they were almost definitely not planning on doing a Bieber-themed skit because they did one the week before!
For that episode, Kate McKinnon busted out her incredible Bieber impression to have him comment on his egging scandal. “It’s a tradition in Canada,” the fake Justin said, as well as, “I thought my neighbor was a chicken, so I was just returning his kids.” Because of Kate’s always-striking-a-pose impression of Justin, the skit was hilarious and spot on — just like the one they did last night.
Overall it’s been a few rough weeks for Justin — and SNL is reaping all the benefits. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Watch the skit above and let us know!
