Cameron Diaz and the SNL Ladies Rap About the Joys of Going Home for Thanksgiving

Posted on

Nobody captures the thrill of going home for the holidays quite like the women of Saturday Night Live.

Last Christmas brought us "(Do It on My) Twin Bed," a rap all about the awkwardness of bringing your significant other to your childhood bedroom. And this weekend, the Thanksgiving-themed “Back Home Ballers” boasted about the perks of staying with mom and dad.

“Head straight to the fridge like a boss yo. Hell yeah, my mom went to Costco,” Kate McKinnon spits.

Host Cameron Diaz also scored in “High School Theater Show,” a sketch about the absurdities of performance art by a group of precocious teens.

Coffee addicts and hippies alike should appreciate “Nest-Spresso,” a bit that imagined a world in which urban farming was a simple as using an overpriced espresso machine.

But the highest honors go to the cold open, a timely play on the educational video series Schoolhouse Rock! that took on President Barack Obama‘s executive order on immigration.
