9. '12 Years a Slave' Auditions
The show had tackled Steve McQueen's Oscar-winning movie on slavery before (see the "12 Days a Slave" skit in the Edward Norton episode), but this digital short zeroed in on a specific aspect of the film: casting the villains. Namely, it imagines a bunch of white actors auditioning for the racist parts and having to, shall we say, get into character in front of African-American crew members. It's a one-joke bit that executes its one joke wonderfully; bonus points for Kenan Thompson's McQueen impersonation and Jay Pharoah's reaction when a performer is told to meet his eyeline.
