Last night was a big night for Saturday Night Live. In addition to being the season finale, last night's episode was also the final one for veteran cast members Bobby Moynihan and Vanessa Bayer. But it wasn't all sadness. With Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson hosting the show, and joining the "five timers club," Tom Hanks joined Johnson onstage during the opening monologue to welcome him to the club and accept an offer to be Johnson's running mate in his 2020 presidential campaign:

Some other highlights from the show which also happen to be all the videos SNL has posted to YouTube, where they are ripe for click harvest, included the diamond-encrusted fidget spinner commercial:

All of this leaves one question… have we all been worked? Or has The Rock worked himself into a shoot?

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
