- The skit was cut for time
- The setting for the sketch is a motel painting
The "Motel Painting" skit was cut for time during Saturday's "SNL", in which Dave Chappelle hosted and made headlines for his post-election political commentary.
The setting for the sketch is a motel painting featuring two ducks, Alex Moffat and Melissa Villasenor, and a swan played by Chappelle.
While the two ducks attempt to confront the swan about pulling his own weight around the pond, the swan explains that being "stunning" should be enough.
The two ducks are met with aloof indifference when Chappelle asks how long the conversation will take. "I have to go over there under rays of sun and look stunning." Don't we all?
Tuning in to his inner diva, Chappelle asks the ducks, "I'm sorry -- do you have a long gorgeous neck? Have you inspired countless ballets?"
"It wasn't called duck lake," Chappelle says, no doubt internally doing a sassy hair flip.
The two ducks end up admitting how stunning the swan is in the end, and that he doesn't have to do much else beyond sitting there and looking pretty. It's tough being the only swan in a pond full of ducks.
