‘SNL’ and Sarah Silverman Make a Horrifying Sequel to ‘The Fault in Our Stars’
'The Fault in Our Stars' was one of the big surprise hits of the summer, telling a heartbreaking love story between two young cancer patients. Despite that Very Serious Material, 'SNL' and guest host Sarah Silverman found a way to make fun of the movie and tie into current events. Thus was born the fake trailer for 'The Fault in Our Stars 2: The Ebola in Our Everything.'
The title is all you need to know, really. This trailer follows the same beats as the original movie and like so many 'SNL' fake trailers, perfectly captures the look and tone of the original. But instead of cancer, the heroine of the film has Ebola, the extremely deadly virus that's been making headlines for the past few weeks by rearing its ugly head in the United States for the first time. As you'd expect, her potential love interest isn't very pleased to learn this about her an their courtship becomes increasingly difficult, culminating in their very bizarre solution for physical intimacy.
Oh, an Kenan Thompson pops up to show off an unremarkable Terrence Howard impression for some reason.
This is a meaner than usual sketch for 'SNL,' but it feels exactly like the kind of thing that the giddily offensive Silverman would embrace. 'SNL' is often at its most fun when it's letting its guest stars rub off on the entire show.
