Jake Gyllenhaal hosted Saturday Evening Reside and it was a enjoyable night time of musical sketches for the actor. One in every of them occurred to be the “Truck Cease CD”, which took us again to the CD compilation commercials from the 90s that you just’d get up watching in the course of the night time. You realize what I am speaking about, those that will characteristic “Horse With No Title” by America after which swap to “Me and Bobby McGee” by Janis Joplin.
This time although, it featured two gasoline station prospects, Kyle Mooney and Ego Nwodim, making enjoyable of the truth that the truck cease nonetheless had CDs on the market. Who even nonetheless has a CD participant to hearken to a CD of their vehicles? The reply: truckers. Aidy Bryant seems to push on them a compilation CD from a trucker who sings songs about being on the street.
Whereas one tune implicates him in serving to El Chapo escape, the tunes are actually very catchy and Saturday Evening Reside clearly knew that after they had the solid singing “Ghost Trucker” by the top of the sketch.
It is such a selected sketch that calls again to the time interval after we all used to get up in the course of the night time and listen to some bizarre compilation business enjoying as a result of all of the common programming for the night time had ended. These are nonetheless the commercials that simply pop into our head on occasion. If I stated “think about proudly owning the best love songs,” you most likely can hear Céline Dion singing “If I used to be your woman, and also you have been my man” nearly immediately.
This sketch took us all proper again there with out being so clearly songs everyone knows and love. However it’s nonetheless a selected sort of reminiscence that does not exist anymore. Gone are the times of CDs usually, particularly compilation ones, however imagining Gyllenhaal simply sitting in a truck by himself singing “Ghost Trucker” is sufficient to make this one of many funniest sketches of the night time.
Hopefully, there’s a group of truckers on the market who do, actually, make their very own compilation CDs to entertain themselves on lengthy rides, but additionally hopefully they do not unintentionally drink their very own urine in the best way that these songs make it appear. That looks as if not a really perfect state of affairs but when there’s a ghost trucker, I would like some extra songs about him.
