Fred & Kristen are Garth & Kat

Fred & Kristen are Garth & Kat

There are plenty of embeddable moments from this weekend’s Saturday Night Live (a uniquely strong episode hosted well by James Franco), from “Snookie” to the absurd insanity of the “Tizzle Wizzle” show (a deft and dark parody of Yo Gabba Gabba). However, this moment from “Weekend Update” is something bizarre and special. Fred Armisen and Kristen Wiig show up as singing duo Garth & Kat, appearing to sing some holiday songs.

It becomes clear that they have not rehearsed, nor seem to know any real holiday songs. What unfolds is classic improv, as well as a glimpse at the banality of real holiday songs. Hopefully you enjoy it as much as I did. “Shovel that snow! Shovel that snow!”
