If you aren’t a hip hop fan, you probably weren’t aware that Eminem has a highly anticipated album coming out. To promote the album, Eminem will be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend. The episode will be hosted by Kerry Washington.
To promote the episode they recorded and aired some promos. They aren’t as awkward as Eminem’s appearance in the booth of the Michigan game with Kirk Herbstreit, but he does go into his fear of cameras routine by basically standing still like a statue.
Host Kerry Washington says she is having fun, SNL cast member Nasim Pedrad says she is having fun as well and asks Eminem if he is having fun he is just standing there motionless. Staring into the camera. In the next promo Washington is talking about getting cupcakes after the show and says it was Eminem’s idea.
He breaks his statue like pose to say “I love cupcakes.”
It might not be the best comedic performance ever but I think they’re brilliant and hilarious.
