Elton John Stars in Wonderful, Silly 'Laser Cats: The Musical' on 'SNL'

Digital short is a highlight of John's hosting gig

Elton John's first-ever hosting gig on Saturday Night Live this weekend was full of great jokes at the rock icon's expense – his monologue was sharp and his punk rock turn with Fred Armisen as the Queen of England was inspired – but perhaps the most memorable skit was this bizarre digital short in which John stars as the villain of Laser Cats: The Musical. His outfit is what really makes it work – even by the standards of how John dressed in the Seventies, it's a surreal and gaudy costume.
