The country is still in a tense state after the protests and riots that occurred after a grand jury failed to indict a police officer for shooting Michael Brown. Saturday Night Live tried to lighten the mood by recreating a peppy, upbeat St. Louis morning show after the angry protests. Things get awkward really fast.
For one reason or another, the clip never aired on TV, which has made viewers even more interested in the sketch. The video already has over two million hits, and has turned out to be SNL’s most popular clip from last weekend’s show.
