And spoilers: Amy Schumer is a member of the #squad…
Christmas is nearly here, but we already got the best present ever – a Bad Blood spoof courtesy of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Just another reason these two will always be our #friendshipgoals.
Hosting the December 19th episode of Saturday Night Live, the SNL veterans decided to shed some light on the real #squadgoals behind their lives as comediennes, mothers and all-around badasses.
Parodying Taylor Swift’s now iconic Bad Blood music video, which featured a bevy of supermodels, actresses and singers, Tina and Amy instead chose to highlight their ‘Dope Squad’ – the nannies, mammogram technicians and even their real-life gynecologist who help them go about their daily lives.
But that’s not all, Amy Schumer even made an appearance, giving the sketch some star power. The actress clearly had a blast filming with them, posting on Instagram that her new ‘Dope Squad’ was a ‘very esteemed group’ and showed the behind-the-scenes filming of the sketch.
The spot-on spoof even has Tina and the two Amys mimicking the music video, dressing up in post-apocalyptic gear, slow-mo walking away from an explosion and having vaguely superhero names like ‘Powderkeg’ and ‘Shortfuse’. And the best part? SNL cast member Aidy Bryant even raps, highlighting the girl power behind working mothers, with lyrics like ‘A queen ain't a queen just for sitting on a throne/ She need a whole damn crew/ She can't do it alone.’ Too true, Aidy, too true.
The sketch comes as Tina and Amy host SNL for the first time together, in honour of their latest film, Sisters. But after the chemistry between Schumer, Poehler and Fey, we’re hoping the ‘Dope Squad’ makes an appearance in Amy Schumer’s new movie with Jennifer Lawrence . Now THAT is something we have to see.
