Rapper and We are who we are actor Kid Cudi, who was the musical guest, treated Saturday Night Live spectators with a musical sketch, which also featured another surprise guest.
Following Marcus Mumford’s cameo during host Carey Mulligan’s opening monologue, Timothée Chalamet crushed the final episode of Saturday Night Live to join Kid Cudi and Pete Davidson to play their flutes. In the musical number, which also starred Chris Redd, the evening’s musical guest joined the cast members in bragging about their affinity for flutes.
The rap act saw men poking fun at elements of the flute on a number of hit trap and rap acts, including “Sure Shot” and “Mask Off”.
“This strange little flute / I love this strange little flute,” they sing.
The crew continue to rap about how they take care of their “weird little flute,” from cleaning their saliva from the various chambers to carrying it in a case adorned with stickers. As if they don’t make the “weird little flute” sound cool enough, Davidson says “Timothée Chalamet loves the flute.”
the Dune the actor joined the number to perform his own flute solo. They continued to rap with the instruments until the owner of Mulligan’s music store interrupted their jam session.
“Guys, you’ve been sitting here for about four hours,” she said. “You have to buy something or go.”
“In that case, we’ll buy all your flutes,” Davidson replies.
