[VIDEO] “SNL”: Oscar Isaac as the singing Meatball Man – Charli XCX

Do you like skits with singing? How about sketches with meatballs? Perhaps you prefer sketches of horrific, anthropomorphic skin appendages? Well, hopefully you like all three – and hopefully you like them all at once – because that’s something Saturday night live served this weekend.

The sketch – with Sarah Sherman and Chris Redd snuggled up on a couch – begins with references to the classic horror story about the girl with the green ribbon around her neck. You know the one where her head turns out to fall off when she unties it? This sketch is like that. Type of.

Here, Sherman pulls the tape to reveal a singing meatball on her neck, played by the show’s guest host Oscar Isaac. Imagine a nightmarish goiter singing like Andy Kaufman’s character taxi. Do you have this image in mind? Good because it will never go away.

Redd is very understanding, that is, until he notices a second Meatball played by Aidy Bryant. And the meatball versions of Andrew Dismukes on tambourine and Melissa Villaseñor on triangle. Kenan Thompson adds bass to the growing chorus, Bowen Yang’s meatballs harmonize as he eats cheese, and a second miniature Sherman simply vomits black bile.

If you were hoping for one of those bouncy ball singalong numbers set in a psychedelic animated world, then you’re in luck, and you’re also a deeply weird person. Speaking of deeply, deeply weird, the show’s musical guest Charlie XCX plays a keytar in Sherman’s armpit. And because XCX is also nice as a meatball and convincing, Redd decides to stay.

Not surprisingly, this sketch leaves us with more questions than it answers. How was this done? How did you convince Isaac to be there? Will there be a sequel to this skit where we meet the other three meatballs that XCX sings about? Can we ever see someone wearing a scarf or turtleneck without humming “EEEEEE-OO-LAH-OO-AH-DIGGA DAH” to themselves again?
