‘Saturday Night Live’ catches the moment before Kendall Jenner’s Pepsi disaster
“And then Kendall Jenner comes up to a police officer and imparts him a Pepsi, everybody celebrates, and … no? Are you sure that’s tone-deaf? “
Yeah. We’re sure. We’re all very sure.
In a digital short-lived at the top of Saturday Night Live , Beck Bennett frisks the one person the ONLY person who was clearly not so sure that Kendall Jenner’s Pepsi business was going to be a total catastrophe.
Bennett( below) is ostensibly the director of the absurdly, jaw-droppingly off-target ad that happened late last week. In the excerpt, he speaks with a series of parties on his cell phone just minutes before it’s time to shoot.
“No, we’re celebrating the cultures everybody celebrates! ” he pleads.
But it doesn’t matter how he tries to justify it, whoever’s on the other wrinkle( encounter: ALL OF US) won’t give him the voting rights of confidence he’s after.
“Oh. Get it. Just kind of using them to sell soda? Got it.”
Whoever he speaks with, it’s clear: This idea is not going to fly.
“Hey could you maybe frame a neighbor on the phone? A black one? ” he asks.
And is again , not going what he wants.
“So the whole situation is kind of an adoration to the Black Lives Matter movement … don’t even touch it? “
Problem is, the shoot is starting; cameras are literally rolling.
This trainwreck is too far down the ways to stop.
And here becomes the talent.
“I stop the police from killing black people by handing them a Pepsi.
“I know, it’s charming, right? “
