- During a “Saturday Night Live” sketch about Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben losing their jobs, several comedians hilariously broke character.
- The first moment came at the beginning of the sketch when Maya Rudolph had to suppress a smile after telling her employers they couldn’t fire her because “I’m Aunt Jemima.”
- But things only got sillier as the sketch progressed, and when host Dave Chappelle, playing “The Allstate Guy,” stood up to protest his firing and had to stop himself from laughing.
- When “The Allstate Guy” called out Count Chocula for being able to keep his job, Chappelle hilariously broke character again, turning directly to the camera and saying, “America, look at Pete Davidson’s lips.”
- Both Chappelle and Davidson subsequently broke into laughter, and Davidson even spit out his Count Chocula fangs for a moment.
