Welcome to a 1986 episode of Saturday Night Live…in the year 2014.
I don’t know what else to say about Dana Carvey reviving his “Choppin’ Broccoli” song on The Tonight Show last night, mainly because it didn’t hold a candle to the original. I don’t think 90% of the audience even know what the fuck they were being subjected to. Even if they did, Carvey’s timing was way off. What made the original so beloved was the way he sold it, the way it felt like he was actually making it up as he went along. The 2014 version just felt like a song…about chopping broccoli.
