This Saturday Night Live sketch works a lot better if you imagine Steve Carell is playing a dad version of his legendary Anchorman character, Brick Tamland.
Of course, Brick’s ignorance was sweet and strangely wholesome. In contrast, Carell’s SNL dad is more of a clueless doormat.
The most impressive thing about this sketch is how it makes 6-foot-2 Pete Davidson look like a high schooler. That’s some real TV magic at work right there.
