Saturday Night Live‘s Pete Davidson is from Staten Island — he even starred in a whole movie about it that was released last year, The King Of Staten Island. He talks about being from New York City’s fifth borough a whole lot, and last night on SNL he performed a whole song about being from Staten Island. More specifically, he parodied Marc Cohn’s 1991 hit “Walking In Memphis,” and recruited Cohn himself and fellow Staten Island denizen Method Man to perform, too. Also along for the ride was Big Wet, the viral country pop artist who helped out on the Squid Game song earlier this year. Watch below.

The Netflix show Squid Game is all certain people are talking about right now, so naturally Saturday Night Live riffed on it for a sketch in last night’s Young Thug-featuring episode. Pete Davidson and and episode host Rami Malek sang a whole country-pop song inspired by Squid Game, with the help of a country-pop artist who goes by the name Big Wet, who also appears in the sketch. The track uses the same tune as Big Wet and Branchez’s 2017 song “Turn Up On The Weekend.” It features various allusions to the Korean drama with a chorus of “Hey, guess, I have to play the Squid Game.” Watch it below.

Young Thug released his new album Punk on Friday, which featured guest appearances from Drake, Travis Scott, Doja Cat, Gunna, A$AP Rocky, Post Malone, among others. Those others also included Blink-182’s Travis Barker, Gunna, and Nate Reuss (of fun. fame), and they all came along with Thug for his first appearance on Saturday Night Live as a musical guest. Reuss and Gunna were there for their collab from the album called “Love You More”; Barker played drums for that and “Tick Tock,” which was the album’s lead single. Watch the performances below.
