Riffing on Eminem’s “Without Me” video — right down to the Robin costume — Davidson first questions U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellin (Kate McKinnon) about the digital trend that has exploded in recent months.
“What the hell’s an NFT? / Apparently cryptocurrency / Everyone’s making so much money / Can you please explain what’s an NFT,” Davidson, SNL’s resident Slim Shady impersonator, asks. “It’s like real-life Monopoly / Everyone’s doing it, like Gronkowski / Can you please help me make an NFT?”
Chris Redd’s Morpheus from The Matrix then rifled through a list of bizarre NFT collectibles — like a photo of Chuck E. Cheese on the Supreme Court and a gif of a twerking Thanos — before Harlow, playing a janitor, broke down NFTs to their essence: “Non-fungible means that it’s unique / There could only be one, like you and me / NFTs are insane / Built on the blockchain / Built on a digital ledger of transactions / It records information of what’s happening / When it’s minted, you can sell it as art / And this concludes my rapping part.”
