That Moment When Your Dad Recognizes Your Gay Porn Star Boyfriend

"Pumpgood—is that Irish?"

Hey, we’ve all been there.

In a particularly screwy sketch on last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live, Golden Globe-winning host Sam Rockwell played Richard, a conservative father awkwardly meeting his gay son’s new boyfriend for the first time.

But the evening takes an unusually sharp turn when Richard can’t shake the sensation that he knows Marcus (new cast member Chris Redd) from somewhere. “I feel like I see you all the time,” he says. “Do you work out at Crunch?”

It finally rings a bell after Marcus, who claims to be “very popular with a certain type of demographic,” tries open a bottle of wine between his legs.

“Oh, you’re a gay porn star!” Richard fangirls. “I got one of my top-tier gay porn stars in my house and we’re giving him cookies. I can’t believe I wore this shirt to meet Marcus Pumpgood like an idiot.”

The remainder of the sketch, which must’ve been written by a gay guy, requires the respected Three Billboards actor to ramble on about CockyBoys, Palm Springs getaways, and bootlegging porn scenes from tube sites.

“Well, anyhoo, I guess I’m getting a divorce,” Richard says. “And now I’m probably stepping down as pastor. Goodbye, family!” Then he leaves—but not before snatching his laptop!
