Happy Thanksgiving week, y’all! Today I’m taking a break from the regular to share one of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions- watching laugh until you cry style SNL Thanksgiving videos.
So whether you’re looking for something to break up a stressful day, pass the time while you hide in the bathroom from your family, or remember the lyrics to Adam Sandler’s Thanksgiving Song this round-up of funny SNL Thanksgiving videos has your back.
Everybody’s family has one – you know, a family member that has a special gift for sucking the life out of the party? In this sketch, Rachel Dratch’s famous Debbie Downer character brings this Thanksgiving meal way down with her thoughts on world disasters, bird flu, and smallpox causing everyone – including the turkey to leave the table.
Bobby Moynihan goes “full throttle” as Guy Fieri giving a few over the top Thanksgiving ideas on Weekend Update. Thirty-two tablespoons of tequila-infused garlic butter, anyone?
Nobody does a commercial parody better than SNL, and this one that features a Target parking lot doesn’t disappoint. Need a place to take a moment, bang your head on the steering wheel, or text a friend, “Honestly, I can’t with them today”? You’re covered.
Adam Sandler’s musical appearances on Weekend Update were always hilarious – but before The Hanukkah Song, there was the Turkey Song back in 1992. “Thanksgiving is a special night. Jimmy Walker used to say Dynomite.”
Thanksgiving with family can be hard. In this clip, the only thing that keeps this family together is Adele.
