A lot has happened for Facebook since Saturday Night Live last aired at the end of March. Mostly, Cambridge Analytica, and all the terrible fallout (for Facebook executives and for the rest of the world) from Cambridge Analytica. So obviously Mark Zuckerberg (Alex Moffat) brought his ongoing apology tour to SNL Weekend Update.
This brief chat with co-host Colin Jost leans in hard on the old joke that IRL Zuckerberg is actually a robot wearing human skin. Moffat tries his hand at laughing, telling jokes, even dabbing.
Basically what I’m saying is this sketch is three full minutes of the uncanny valley in action.
