I just saw this video online and I gotta say, it’s the funniest damn thing I’ve seen on SNL in a long time. Unintentionally of course (as I’m pretty sure she was going for “this shit is balls to the wall crazy awesome” instead of “this shit is looney tunes crazy” or even worse “Joel Schumacher directing Batman and Robin with unintentionally hilarious nipple suits and neon paint is everywhere crazy”, but you spell your name with an actual fucking dollar sign, and you get what you pay for Ke$ha).
It starts off with her actually wrapping herself in the American flag and it continues on with backup dancers dressed in skin-tight spandex and huge ass helmets. (Did I also mention that they’re doing the robot?!!?) Then when she begins to playing the lights like a frickin piano, all you can think to yourself is “Holy shit, this is about to get so much funnier.” And you know what? It does.
Just try not to pay attention to how painfully not into it the crowd is. Seriously though, Lorne Michaels should hire Ke$ha as the new not-ready-for-prime-time player. She knows what’s funny. (Even if she’s just trying to be cool.)
