The most recent episode of “Saturday Night Live” (Oct. 14) featured this completely bonkers Halloween party sketch that was funny for all the wrong reasons.
The sketch begins with a group of colleagues — including guest host Kumail Nanjiani dressed as Groot from “Guardians of the Galaxy” — at an office Halloween party doing Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” dance.
Everyone appears to be having an awesome time. And then the phone rings. On the other end of the line is a guy named of Gregg (played by Beck Bennet). Gregg is the group’s boss who couldn’t make it to the party because he’s at a conference. But his absence is probably for the best, as he is a rather embarrassing confession to make.
It turns out that Gregg has infected all of his underlings with Hepatitis A — much to their dismay. He baked them a cake while infected, and everyone ate a slice — everyone except Aidy Bryant’s character that is. But she’s still infected, because Gregg drank from her fancy water flask.
Thanks a bunch, Gregg!
