What would you do if you found out that Hello Kitty was not actually a cat, but a human? If you’re Keke Palmer and Bowen Yang in the above Saturday Night Live sketch, you lose your mind.
The two play new employees at New York’s Hello Kitty store who are very excited about their new jobs… until they find out Hello Kitty’s human nature, that is. (Yes, Hello Kitty creators Sanrio have said that she is human.) And honestly, who can blame Palmer and Yang’s outrage? You expect me to believe that this cat is a human, but that her boyfriend is an actual cat? I’d be throwing chairs too!
The sketch escalates to even more bizarre factoids that leave Palmer and Yang fuming, giving them a great opportunity to showcase their comedic chemistry. Stick around for the reveal of who’s in the Hello Kitty suit — it’s a treat.
