Charlize Theron Goes Undercover in 'SNL' digital short

by Saturday Night Live 3:15 mins

In Saturday's digital short "Tourists," some of the "Saturday Night Live" cast members and host Charlize Theron fan out to the streets of New York disguised as visitors asking locals for help. They go undercover with accents, odd wigs, and, in the case of Theron, a fat suit to look like lost out-of-towners. "How do you say 'hail a taxi'?" cast member Kyle Mooney asks as he stops a man in a suit. "Hail," the man responds, in a slightly louder voice. "Do you know where Arbalato Street is?" Bobby Moynihan, sporting a gold chain and accent, asks of a passerby. "Not at all," the New Yorker responds. Moynihan then gives her directions and thanks her. "Ciao, you take camera, you take picture, camera," Theron — yes, that's her — says in a thick Italian-ish accent. She then hands an expensive-looking piece of equipment to a couple and, instead of posing, slowly walks away, leaving the two completely confused. Critics agreed it was a standout sketch. "The best sketch was actually a digital short of the 'SNL' cast, disguised as tourists, wandering the streets of New York," wrote Entertainment Weekly of Saturday's show. The sketch "worked well" for Theron's talents, Slate added. "A beautiful and understated digital short," Rolling Stone noted. "All of the 'people on the street' that the disguised cast interacted with seemed so nice and so friendly. See! New York isn't mean," wrote ScreenCrush. Nice New Yorkers — maybe that could work as their next sketch. — Claudine Zap (@zapkidd)
