‘SNL’: Steve Martin Makes Fart Jokes With Selena Gomez

The Arconia came to 30 Rock on Saturday, when Steve Martin crashed Selena Gomez’s host debut “Saturday Night Live.”

In a skit in which Selena Gomez played the host of a television show about notable inventions in history, Martin, five-time host of “SNL” and Gomez’s “Only Murders in the Building” co-star, appeared as “gag inventor” Archie Gizmo. He speaks to the camera about his early career prototyping a whoopie pillow.

“I knew it would be funny if your boss sat down and a noise came out of his ass. But I just couldn’t figure out what kind of sound. I couldn’t crack it – but then I met hair.”

Aidy Bryant appeared in a 1960s flashback, grinning, dancing and farting. “Miss Dina Beans,” Martin said. “I saw her from afar. Her energy was magnetic. Her eyes were endless. And every time she sat down: gas.”

“It was that night that he realized: The funniest sound that could come out of an ass was a fart,” Gomez said. Martin kept talking about how he fell in love with Dina, as well as her bad luck.

When Bryant opened a can of peanuts and four live snakes emerged, Martin got the idea for fake snake jokes. When she was struck by lightning while shaking someone’s hand, he invented a hand buzzer and so on.

“The biggest joke she ever made was marrying a man like me. I love you, Dina Beans,” Martin said, reaching out to shake his wife—with a buzzer hidden in his palm.

In her monologue, Gomez joked about her age difference with her “Only Murders in the Building” co-stars.

“I was so honored to work with Steve Martin and Martin Short, especially after I googled them to find out who they were. I remember telling my girlfriend I was cast on a show called ‘Only Murders’ , and she said, “Sounds sexy. Any hot counterstars?” And I was like, ‘It depends. Do you like the banjo?’”

Season 1 of “Only Murders in the Building” debuted on Hulu in August 2021, and Season 2 will premiere in June.

When he got a video of Depp’s property manager (Kenan Thompson) finding the “dookie,” Heidi Gardner, who played Heard’s attorney, pointed out that the video wouldn’t count as proof that the stool came from a human — like Heard. claims it came from the couple’s dogs.

“That’s true, but I’ll allow it, because it sounds nice. And this test is for fun!” yelled Cecily Strong, playing judge.

In a parody of how the trial has become such a pop culture moment, Strong said, “I think I’ve seen enough. This trial has given me a lot to think about. On the one hand, I believe Mr Depp’s story. But then again, your constant little grin lets me know. This isn’t the first woman to make you so mad that she shit in your bed.”

“I think I’m known as a nightmare,” Mooney replied, grinning.

In another sketch, the cast fakes the recent leak of photos and video of the Broadway play “Take Me Out,” in which Jesse Williams appears completely naked.

“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the first preview of ‘A Storm Within’ from acclaimed Irish playwright Rory McFadden. And as you probably know, there’s a penis in the show,” Thompson said. “Yes, that’s where we’re going and it better not be enough online. If you post it, you will lose the penis.”

His second outing was with Fleet Foxes for their collaboration “A Love/Hate Letter to Alcohol,” which is featured on the rapper’s upcoming album “Twelve Carat Toothache,” released June 3 through Mercury Records and Republic Records.
