SNL Pokes Fun At Mortal Kombat With New Skit

A recent sketch from Saturday Night Live parodies eSports by having two gamers face-off in a fighting game bearing a striking resemblance to Mortal Kombat.

In the skit, actors Pete Davidson and Kenan Thompson have to choose a fighter before the match begins. Unfortunately, Kenan is forced to play a character he's never heard of before: Boo Boo Jeffries (Tiffany Haddish), an amusing character that isn't very helpful in a fight. The skit is entertaining and is mostly ludicrous, making it worth a watch. You can check it out below.
