A holiday skit during this weekend’s Saturday Night Live got a few laughs for spoofing the Christmas sequel Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.
In the sequel, Kevin McCallister (Macauley Culkin) is separated from his family when he boards the wrong airplane and ends up in NYC. There, he befriends a homeless woman who enjoys the company of pigeons.
During the skit, comedian Melissa Villaseñor (Hubie Halloween) plays Kevin opposite former SNL star and guest host Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids) who plays the Pigeon Lady. In the “never before seen ending,” the bit pokes fun at the fact that although Kevin has his father’s credit card for the first half of the movie, he never offers to buy the Pigeon Lady any food, clothes or shelter.
“I’m sleeping in a room at the Plaza [Hotel],” Villaseñor’s Kevin tells the Pigeon Lady when she informs him that she sleeps in the park. “I used my dad’s credit card. I can get anything I want.”
The Pigeon Lady then hints to Kevin that he can afford to get her a hotel room, too. “It would be my pleasure,” Kevin says. “I’ll rent a suite for you as long as you want…and maybe some new clothes and food, too. It is Christmas after all.”
While overcome with joy, the Pigeon Lady’s happiness is short-lived when Home Alone villains Harry and Marv show up in the park and try to steal Kevin’s credit card. The Pigeon Lady, however, isn’t having it. “No, you can’t take this from me!” she screams before knocking out the thieves with a series of punches to their faces.
Then, in a whoa-that-escalated-quickly turn of events, she continues to bludgeon the men with the tip of her umbrella until blood sprays across her face. Kevin reacts to the grisly murders by putting his hands on his cheeks and screaming like he does in the original movie when he applies aftershave.
Guess a turtle dove Christmas tree ornament isn’t going to cut it this year. “Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals!”
