Eminem made a pre-recorded cameo last night in a Saturday Night Live sketch that parodied his Marshall Mathers LP hit “Stan.” Cast member Pete Davidson played “Stu,” a Santa Claus-obsessed man who desperately wants Santa to give him a PlayStation 5 video game console for Christmas, writing increasingly disturbed letters that accidentally go unseen at Santa’s workshop. Eminem appears at the very end in a video clip, unwrapping the aforementioned console underneath a Christmas tree, despite not having asked for one, and mocking Stu in the process. Host Jason Bateman plays a dismissive Santa Clause. Check out the full clip below.
Musical guest Morgan Wallen appeared in a sketch that mocked being disinvited from SNL earlier this year after a video surfaced of his maskless partying in Alabama. Earlier this year, Davidson parodied Drake on the show with “Drake Song.” Eminem surprise-dropped his latest LP Music to Be Murdered By in January. In July, he shared the collaborative track “The Adventures of Moon Man and Slim Shady.”
