Make way for baby Yeezus! Jay Pharoah did yet another flawless interpretation of Kanye on ‘SNL’, this time during a holiday sketch called ‘Jingle Ballerz’, where he hilariously plays a rapping baby Jesus.
Nothing says happy holidays like watching our favorite celebs being spoofed in a mock MTV holiday special on Saturday Night Live! During the Dec. 6 episode, celebs like Rihanna, Beyonce, and Justin Bieber were spoofed during a reenactment of scenes from the nativity. The big LOL came when Jay Pharoah emerged as baby Jesus — or rather baby Yeezus — ending the skit with a hilarious bang. Watch it here!
Jay Pharoah’s Kanye West Impression Of Jesus In ‘SNL’ Skit
So funny! Rihanna (Sasheer Zamata) narrated the skit while Eminem (Taran Killam), Riff Raff (James Franco) and Rick Ross (Kenan Thompson) stepped out as the three wise man.
However, the ultimate surprise came after Nicki made a “Drunk In Love” reference, and out popped baby Jesus! The three wise men started singing along to the beat of Kanye’s hit “Black Skinhead”, while baby Jesus rapped all about being a God. Which totally makes sense that centuries later Jesus became Yeezus and wrote “I am a God.”
Kanye West ‘Wasn’t Happy’ About ‘SNL’ Diss In 2013
We wonder how Kanye will feel about being the punch of yet another SNL spoof! Kanye and Kim Kardashian were the highlights of many skits in 2013 including the “Bound 2” holiday parody, and let’s not forget “Waking Up With Kimye!” Kanye was apparently not happy to be parodied!
“Kim and Kanye both saw [the Dec. 21 ‘Waking Up With Kimye’ sketch],” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Kanye doesn’t think it’s funny at all, but Kim doesn’t really care. As long as they aren’t making fun of North it’s okay. Kanye wasn’t happy they made fun of “Bound 2″ because they put a lot of work into that.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Will Kanye be upset SNL made fun of him again? Did you think “Jingle Ballerz” was hilarious? Let us know!
