‘Accidental Racist’ Spoof Declares: Racism’s Over Y’All [Video]
To ensure that the Brad Paisley/LL Cool J song “Accidental Racist” remains a topic of conversation for at least another day or two, SNL offered a spoof of the song on Saturday night’s Vince Vaughn-hosted episode.
Vaughn didn’t appear in the sketch, however, which came as part of “Weekend Update”. Kenan Thompson played LL Cool J, and Jason Sudeikis played Paisley. Most of the sketch is simply their attempt at defending the song, which has drawn a great amount of controversy and ridicule, but they did, of course, offer some new lyrics.
For example, Thompson’s Cool J offers, “If you think NCIS is good, I’ll forget the Aryan Brotherhood.”
In case you haven’t heard the actual song, one of the real lyrics is: “If you don’t judge my gold chains, I’ll forget the iron chains.”
