It's not even the holidays and yet, SNL might have produced one of its best sketches of the year. Saturday Night Live is known for having some unforgettable moments as a result of the creative team, and one of its most recent will definitely be one to remember, as it's a parody of the now infamous content creator David Dobrik.
Dobrik has been in the hot seat as of recently. The YouTuber has been weathering a storm of toxic behavior and misconduct accusations from his past that has completely stopped his usual streak of consistent uploads. Although Dobrik eventually released a video on his personal channel addressing the numerous allegations, the apologies haven't been fully accepted by the internet at large, even drawing the ire of fellow creator PewDiePie.
Saturday Night Live isn't new to making parodies of famous YouTubers. With this one, however, it's clear that the writers behind the script had no intentions of holding back in the slightest. Starring Kyle Mooney as 'Marky Munro' with fellow actor Daniel Kaluuya as his protégé J.P., the video wastes no time in diving into the first 'video' with the Prank Posse, a play on Dobrik's group, Vlog Squad. Twenty-four hours after the video goes viral, Marky faces a wave of allegations from his past as a consequence.
Following the first apology video, which appears to be insincere, Munro launches into his second prank. This prank is far more dangerous than the previous, as the creator drops a flatscreen TV on Kaluuya's character. A second apology video follows immediately after that, with the faux YouTuber stating that potential harm to his friend hadn't even occurred to him. Of course, although Munro appears sincere with tears streaming down his face, it's clear that he doesn't get it with the mention of his forthcoming video.
As expected, with the backlash of that video comes a third apology, which the creator uses to promote his other apology videos. Hilariously, Kaluuya as J.P. seeks revenge in a video following that one, in which he attacks Munro with another flat screen. With Munro unconscious, J.P. offers his own version of an apology - rather than stick around to explain, he instead runs off to a different part of the house.
What's particularly striking about the sketch was how brazen it was at directly referencing some of Dobrik's past videos. For example, the third video of Munro's is almost a direct parody of a now-removed video made in the past by Dobrik and the Vlog Squad. While the writers of SNL likely didn't want to go too far by bringing up the more recently shocking allegations, it's clear that they wanted to poke some fun at the situation.
After a lengthy document is published online accusing Twitch streamer and YouTuber Vinny Vinesauce of using his popularity to engage in sexual relations with his fans, Vinny has decided to seek legal advice moving forward.
Vinny is best known as the creator and first member of the content creation group Vinesauce. Similar to the OfflineTV house, Vinesauce was a collection of streamers and content creators under the same entity, but it has since died down as most of the members began dedicating time to their own channels. Much of Vinesauce's popular content, especially currently, are the Corruption Videos, where the streamer plays corrupted video games mostly via emulators. But now, Vinny is becoming a big name in the gaming community following sexual allegations against him.
