This Is What It Might Look Like When Taylor Swift and Her Girl Squad Officially Take Over the World
It’s #squadgoals gone horribly, horribly wrong.
Believe it or not, there were some Hillary Clinton-free sketches on the Saturday Night Live season premiere last night, including this one ribbing Taylor Swift for the seemingly endless parade of models, musicians, actors, comedians, and women soccer players on her friend-filled 1989 tour.
Like last year’s the Beygency, the sketch imagines a pop star-driven, postapocalyptic future—this time, as a result of Swift bringing so many pals into her squad that society becomes a barren wasteland because literally everyone is following her around on tour. “First it was the models, and then the athletes, and then it was everybody,” Kenan Thompson explains in the fake film trailer (which is oddly free of this week’s host and fellow musical blond Miley Cyrus).
Take a look here:
Even in this dystopia, people find it hard to hate on Taylor. “She’s actually very generous with her friends,” Aidy Bryant sheepishly admits. And hey, it seems like a way more fun future than, like, Panem.
Taylor Swift hasn’t commented on the sketch yet, but we predict that a perfectly self-deprecating tweet on the matter is coming any second now.
What do you think? Was this sketch too mean, or do you also fear the Squad? PS: Don’t miss Hillary Clinton’s impression of Donald Trump and other hilarious moments from last night’s SNL.
