Saturday Night Live has remained a part of pop culture for decades now by making sure they talk about what’s hot at the moment. Sometimes they poke fun, other times they pay tribute, but you can bet that whatever the public is talking about, SNL will feature it in some way. That’s exactly the case with the latest episode, which used Sonic the Hedgehog 2 as the premise for a couple of jokes.
You might think that SNL would bash Sonic the Hedgehog 2, but that’s actually not the case. The movie was used to make a pair of jokes about President Biden, and Sonic was not the butt of those jokes. You can see both jokes right at the start at the video below.
This also isn’t the first time where Sonic the Hedgehog popped up in an SNK sketch. The last time he was referenced was part of a 2019 skit with Eddie Murphy. If you missed out on that the first time around, you can find it here.
