SNL Cast Members Are So Excited for Bill Hader to Host They’re Rapping About It

Whenever a Saturday Night Live alum returns to the program as a host it feels like a special reunion. Though Pete Davidson and Chris Redd were never on cast with this Saturday’s returnee Bill Hader — he left in 2013, before Davidson and Redd joined the show in 2014 and 2017, respectively — they certainly have a lot of feelings about the longtime cast member. In a new promo for this weekend’s upcoming episode the two rap about their admiration for Hader. “My favorite host, I love him more than my real dad,” Redd raps. Meanwhile, Davidson gets in a bit of trivia with his verse, saying, “He got me my job. I owe him my [beep]-ing life.” This bit is true — Hader recommended Davidson to SNL producer Lorne Michaels after they both appeared in Trainwreck together, however the Documentary Now! star doesn’t seem to happy about the connection in this video.
