“Piers Morgan” gets to interview two of the most controversial men of the hour
Without a doubt, most headlines of last week went to cyclist Lance Armstrong and Manti Te’o, the Notre Dame star who told the press his girlfriend had died of cancer when she wasn’t even a real person to begin with.Saturday Night Live did not miss the opportunity to mock these two controversial athletes – and even CNN host Piers Morgan a bit, for good measure.
Check out the video above to see the latest SNL skit on the topic. The quality of the clip could stand some improvement, though.
The video begins with Armstrong (Jason Sudeikis) talking to Piers Morgan (Taran Killam) about his recent Oprah interview and how “sorry-ish” he is for doping. He’s also trying to use cancer as an excuse, “but only if you think it is [an excuse].”
The interview continues with Manti Te’o (Bobby Moynihan), who, clearly, is still not fully aware of what the hoax pulled on him was, which makes the whole discussion much funnier.
