Last year, Saturday Night Live breakout star Pete Davidson made a name for himself as a movie star with The King of Staten Island, a semi-autobiographical feature he starred in and co-wrote with director Judd Apatow. This past weekend (Nov. 20), Davidson returned to his roots with a humorous parody music video on SNL that featured a few surprising guest stars.
"Walking in Staten" extolled the virtues and vices of Staten Island - cops, pills, trash, combination pizzerias and bagel stores - with new lyrics set to the dulcet tones of Marc Cohn's hit "Walking in Memphis." As if that cognitive dissonance wasn't funny enough, Cohn - who, it's worth noting, is originally from Cleveland - has a co-starring role in the clip, along with Staten Island hip-hop legend Method Man of the Wu-Tang Clan.
We can't wait to see what this does for Staten Island's tourism!
