‘SNL’ Joins Snapchat With Video Mocking Trump Protesters
“Saturday Night Live” joined Snapchat on Friday with a video that mocks people who want to boycott products connected to President Donald Trump.
In the short called, “Boycott,” “SNL” regulars Aidy Bryant and Beck Bennett play a couple leaving an anti-Trump protest trying to get home, according to the Hollywood Reporter. (RELATED: Alec Baldwin To Play Donald Trump On ‘Saturday Night Live’ This Season)
The duo first grab a Uber, only to leave it because the company’s “CEO is working” with Trump. Next they try Lyft and soon find out that the company is associated with a “Trump supporter.” (RELATED: Here’s How Sean Spicer Reacted To His ‘SNL’ Sketch)
“Peter Thiel is an investor in Lyft,” Bennett said. “Peter Thiel is a Trump supporter!”
Once home they want to grab a beer and something to eat and find themselves having to throw out all their beer and food because of the companies’ connection to the president. By the end, the couple were totally naked on the street because of their protest against anything connected to Trump or his daughter Ivanka.
“What are we doing, this isn’t accomplishing anything — nothing is going to change,” Bryant said.
The final shot shows one of them getting a notification on their phone that a Uber executive left the president’s business advisory council.
“It worked! Our voices matter! They listen, we’re not crazy!” said Bennett as both realize they were naked outside and it was time to end their protest.
“Well. It’s happening. Saturday Night Live is now on Snapchat. First target: Protestors! https://www.snapchat.com/discover/SNL/0862284697 …,” the head of news at the app tweeted.
