Morgan Wallen is poking fun at himself!
The 27-year-old country star appeared in a sketch on Saturday Night Live on Saturday (December 5) ahead of his performance on the show later in the night.
In the sketch, Morgan attends a party before he was first set to perform on the show back in October. If you missed it, SNL disinvited him for performing back then because broke COVID-19 safety protocols by attending the party.
Morgan is then visited by his future self (played by Jason Bateman) warning him that if he stays at the party, SNL will kick him off the show.
“I am you from the future and I came here to stop you from partying tonight,” Jason as Morgan says, later adding, “Trust me somebody’s gonna post a video of you ignoring COVID protocols, the whole internet’s gonna freak out … Once people hear about the party, you’re in big trouble man, you’re gonna get kicked off Saturday Night Live.”
“Well I don’t want to screw up an opportunity like that or let my fans down. I guess I’ll leave the party then,” Morgan says, before Jason convinces him to stay.
“Now I know it’s hard, I actually forgot how fun this party was. I mean you got cute girls over here, you got tons of booze, I bet there’s a whole hell of a lot of drugs around right? Maybe we stay for another five or 10 minutes,” Jason as future Morgan says.
Watch the sketch!
