On this weekend’s installment of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, host Saoirse Ronan joined castmembers Cecily Strong, Kate McKinnon and Aidy Bryant to sing a song about the recent sexual harassment scandals embroiling Hollywood, Washington and beyond titled “Welcome to Hell.”
Wearing brightly colored clothes and posing in front of a sunny skyline, rainbows and candies, the song’s subject matter was noticeably darker than the setting its singers stood before.
“Hey there, boys, we know the last couple months have been frickin‘ insane,” Strong said, twirling her hair. “All these big, cool, powerful guys are turning out to be — what’s the word? Habitual predators,” Bryant chimed in, amid fluffy clouds and giant cherry props.
“Here’s a little secret that every girl knows,” Ronan said, before the ladies welcomed everyone to Hell, where “it’s like a maze here, all full of boners.”
“Now, House of Cards is ruined, and that really sucks. Well, here’s a list of stuff that’s ruined for us,” Ronan intoned before the group listed off such things as vans, hotels and Ubers.
“This ain’t a girl group, we just travel in a pack for safety,” Bryant explained.
As bad as things were, however, Leslie Jones appeared to let the women know that “it’s, like, a million times worse for women of color,” to which they were all in agreement.
