A Saturday Night Live sketch spoofing everyone’s favorite (and everyone else’s least favorite) Christmas movie Love Actually was reportedly “cut for time” and thus never aired on this weekend’s show.
The parody stars featured player Pete Davidson, who confesses his love to Amy Adam using cue cards, à la that famous scene with Andrew Lincoln and Keira Knightley where he tells her: “To me, you are perfect.” The sketch plays up the creepiness of the whole silent-cue-card-declaration-of-love thing, and things get real weird, real fast.
Adams has her back to the camera for most of the scene, but if you look closely you’ll see she’s having a very hard time keeping a straight face. Davidson struggles too, because the whole thing is just totally ridiculous. In a good way.
