Steve Martin had a cameo on Selena Gomez’s episode of SNL

Steve Martin should be in SNL every week, and I don’t think I’m asking too much.

Selena Gomez was the host saturday night live this week, and she was just as funny and charming as you’d expect.

When Selena was announced as host, I wondered if Steve Martin or Martin Short, her co-stars from Only murders in the building (Y SNL legends) could make an appearance.

And I was not disappointed! Steve Martin appeared as Archie Gizmo, the inventor of the whoopee cushion, in a prerecorded sketch.

“Archie” was the subject of a documentary on inventors hosted by “Taylor Gosh,” played by Selena.

It turns out that he was the mastermind behind many prank toys like the squeaky cushion, the handheld buzzers, and the googly-eyed sneaky goggles.

Your inspiration? Her wife “Dina Beans”, whose “vicious bad luck” was only surpassed by her willingness to test her husband’s inventions.


For example, “Dina” (played by Aidy Bryant) inspired snakes in a can when she opened a can of nuts and found poisonous snakes inside. She was also struck by lightning while she was shaking someone’s hand, which led to her hand ringing.

It was truly the dumbest of premises, but nonetheless a great reason to bring Steve Martin into the house.
