SNL pokes enjoyable at Canadians in ‘Drake Watch’ sketch
She stood in entrance of a inexperienced display screen picture of Toronto’s waterfront for a information channel section known as “Drake Watch,” and held a microphone emblazoned with the CBC emblem.
Rae and two information anchors had French accents as they chatted about whether or not she had seen the Toronto rapper.
She mentioned she confused him with a person in a wheelchair, which is a reference to Drake’s character Jimmy Brooks from his days starring on the Canadian collection “Degrassi: The Subsequent Technology.”
There have been another Canadian components to the “ SNL” episode on NBC and World — Toronto-born actor Jim Carrey returned to play U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, and Stratford-Ont.-raised pop star Justin Bieber was the musical visitor.
“SNL” is again to airing episodes from Studio 8H at Rockefeller Middle in New York, after doing distant performances throughout the COVID-19 lockdown final season.
