Sloppy Swish Video: SNL Channels Gangnam Style

by at . Comments

SNL's new Digital Short, "The Legend of Mokiki and the Sloppy Swish," is a creature unto its own, but the absurd video and dancing are already inspiring parodies a la Gangnam Style.

You could say the Sloppy Swish is literally contagious.

This weekend, Saturday Night Live introduced viewers to Mokiki, a medical lab test patient turned dance machine who wanders through NYC performing his signature dance move.

It's not quite on par with Psy’s faux-horse-riding prance from “Gangnam Style,” but close.

Clearly, SNL is striving for that kind of viral fame with this enjoyably bizarre short, which bears notable similarities to Psy's record-shattering YouTube smash.

Kenan Thompson rhythmically narrates, giving us the history of Mokiki and his powers.

“It’s a really stupid dance created by a crazy person,” Thompson says to end the video.

Indeed.
