“Saturday Night Live” opened with a sketch in which President Obama, expertly played by Jay Pharaoh, admits to having a hard time convincing Vladimir Putin to stop invading Ukraine.
Obama enlists the real Liam Neeson to send a stronger message.
“I want to give Putin a personal message from me,” Neeson began. “Vladimir, I’ve never met you. I don’t have experience in international diplomacy, but what I do have is a very specific set of skills. Skills that would make me a nightmare for you. By which I mean I’m an actor in Hollywood with a lot of connections.”
Neeson and Obama then presented their project, “written in a language [Putin] could understand”: a video where Obama goes shirtless, wrestles animals, and goes motorbike-riding.
