The much buzzed about debate between Kamala Harris and Mike Pence was parodied perfectly on Saturday Night Live’s Oct. 10 episode. While Maya Rudolph and Beck Bennett got big laughs for their portrayals of the dueling candidates, it was Jim Carrey as Joe Biden who really stole the show, thanks to his transformation into the fly that landed on Pence’s head.
Social media lost it when, during the debate on Oct. 7, a fly landed in Pence’s hair, and didn’t move for a long, long time. In SNL‘s version of the event, that fly wasn’t just an ordinary bug. Instead, it was Carrey’s Biden, who, in a scene cut from the 1986 Jeff Goldblum sci-fi flick The Fly, used a teleportation machine to land as the insect on Pence’s hair.
It’s not long before Carrey’s Biden is delivering Goldblum’s speech from Jurassic Park as the fly, this time, likening Republicans to dinosaurs.
