SNL: Kerry Washington & Jay Pharoah Parody "The Fox"



Kerry Washington tackled her first ever SNL hosting gig last night, and not surprisingly, she nailed it. She played a coterie of diverse characters — Michelle Obama, a demented contestant on an MTV dating show, a professor, and even Oprah. But, the clip most likely to ricochet around the Internet today is "My Girl," a spot-on musical parody of Ylvis' viral hit "The Fox," featuring Jay Pharoah as a convincingly flustered boyfriend caught receiving an incriminating text. Washington is not having it, and Pharoah responds the only way he can: through song. So, what does his girl say? Disapproving chants like "nwah nwahs," "you done goofed," as well as spelling out the farm animal she thinks resembles a rival female. Sure, it's not classy, but neither is having a "cloud full of butts." Oops! (NBC)
