It’s uncover time!

Michael Keaton, recently seen in Birdman, hosted SNL on Saturday, during that he reprised his dual many iconic film roles—Batman and Beetlejuice.

The partial also mocked Indiana’s argumentative Indiana’s Religious Freedom law and CNN and featured a cameo from The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus. Pop star Carly Rae Jepsen was a low-pitched guest, behaving her new songs “I Really Like You” and “All That.”

Check out 5 highlights below.

1. Monologue

Keaton lets Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan torture him by sing-begging him to play Batman and Beetlejuice with them and use backup singers and a badly edited video that depicts him as both (and also shows a expel members spoofing renouned ancillary characters—kudos to Killam on his Jack Nicholson-Joker impression) to try to convince him. Did it work? Watch a clip!

And for your ’80s nostalgia fix…

2. Mocking CNN

Cecily Strong parodies anchor Brooke Baldwin and CNN’s extreme use of reenactment videos to tell news stories where on-scene footage isn’t accessible to them.

So we get an animation of dual scenes from a Mar 24 Germanwings craft before it crashed final week, done by a same group that done a iconic strain video for Dire Straits‘ 1985 strain “Money for Nothing” (whose lyrics enclose an anti-gay slur), puppets imitative those on Crank Yankers to uncover a impulse U.S. and Iranian negotiators reached a framework for a nuclear accord, while Keaton takes partial in No. 3, personification a grill owners who refuses to offer people in suitability with Indiana’s Religious Freedom law (legislation many see as anti-gay), that of march looks like a dance party.

3. Weekend Update

As Pete Davidson discusses a maze of presumably being befuddled during a zombie apocalypse, The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus creates a cameo, with Daryl Dixon’s crossbow!

Bonus points to Davidson for a Jawbreakers and The Boondocks Saints shout-outs.

4. Creepy Easter Fan

In this segment, that is reminiscent of Steve Buscemi‘s 2011 Christmas-themed “Ornaments” sketch, Keaton plays a super creepy dude (and recuperating drug addict) who’s really into Easter (for all a wrong reasons) and terrible puns and shows what’s in his Easter basket. He also somehow manages to spin Easter and a coinciding Jewish holiday of Passover into a competition, with Jesus entrance out as a victor. To be fair, he also kinda disses Santa.

The skit also facilities pragmatic duck cannibalism and…something unfortunate that might make we incompetent to demeanour during a vale chocolate Easter Bunny a same approach again.

Then there’s this honeyed reference.

“Yesterday was Good Friday,” he says, holding adult a DVD of a 1995 cult film Friday, starring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker. “But this, this was a best Friday.”

5. And vocalization of religion…

SNL also mocked another one, in an garb strain video patrician “Neurotology.”
