This skit nearly broke Kate McKinnon and Scarlett Johansson when it first aired and we love to look back on it!
During this episode of Saturday Night Live, host Johansson and funnygal McKinnon took on the roles of two utterly disgusting part-woman but mostly fish creatures from the deep.
In the skit, McKinnon’s character, Shud the Mermaid, and her pal Kunk, played by Johansson, try to seduce a stranded pilot played by Mikey Day. To gain the affection of the pilot, Shud and Kunk show off some of their “sexy” moves, but the whole thing is just so hilariously disturbing.
“A little angler fish info: during mating, the man attaches to the female and then dies,” Johansson said with a smirk.
In the end, all of the mermaids are disappointed when the pilot hears a rescue plane overhead. But Kunk and Shud aren’t finished with him.
Tricking the pilot into giving her a kiss, Shud and Kunk pull their victim into the water.
