Must Watch: Hilarious Saturday Night Live Hotel Ad

Must Watch: Hilarious Saturday Night Live Hotel Ad

15

Saturday Night Live can be a mixed bag nowadays. In my opinion some skits are funny, while others aren’t. Well, SNL nailed it with its latest travel-related skit.

SNL’s hotel ad skit

This past weekend’s SNL had a roughly 4min30sec skit called “Hotel Ad” featuring Billie Eilish. You can watch it for yourself below.

I don’t want to give away too much, so I recommend watching it for yourself. I laughed out loud on multiple occasions, because there are so many points in here that are accurate.

Heck, I’m currently staying at a hotel, and just before watching this I entered through the lobby, only to find the hotel employee at the door watching a video on his iPhone without headphones. At least I’m not at the Business Garden Inn & Suites & Hotel Room Inn!

I also love SNL skits with the actors can’t keep a straight face, as it makes all the more fun, in my opinion.

Other hotel skits from SNL

SNL has had several hotel skits over the years, most of which I’ve enjoyed. For example, I remember the “Hotel Check-In” skit from around four years ago, about a guy returning from North Korea, who just wanted to go to his room, but the front desk agent keeps trying to get him go to the hotel bar instead, where he was performing that night.

Then there was the “Hotel Fees” SNL skit from around eight years ago. While the basis of the ad was great — some hotels charge an outrageous number of fees — the skit perhaps took it a bit too far.

Bottom line

This past weekend SNL had a skit about an ad for a mediocre business hotel. This is so spot on, and made me laugh out loud several times. If you have a few minutes, definitely give the video a watch.

Do you love the SNL hotel ad skit as much as I do?

    Pretty sad that this is considered comedy

    Hey, Ben, do you remember "Yours Is a Very Bad Hotel"? I'd love to see it made into a SNL skit (see https://www.slideshare.net/politicsjunkie/yours-is-a-very-bad-hotel).

    Louis c.k. was fantastic as the hotel clerk in his skit

    This was spot on. I watched this episode in bed at SpringHill Suites (somewhere in Jersey) lol . My friend literally said, what were you expecting, the Ritz ?

    SNL lost it for me.
    The fact they read the cue-cards to say the line "Adams".....
    It's just not funny to watch them read cue cards nonstop.
    I know they write skits to the last minute, but - come on?!

      I’m in Rome. No issue for me viewing the top video.

    Wow, The takeaway is that SNL actors always think they're much funnier than anyone else does. In fact, this show has never been funny for 45 years, except perhaps to the 10-16 year old boy demographic.

      So it’s not funny but you’ve watched it for 45 years… alrighty then.

    The wet eggs and locked yogurt fridge at 8:59 AM got me pretty good. Just stayed at a Fairfield where this happened.

      The locked yogurt fridge at 8:59 was absolutely spot-on
