If you were unsure about how to celebrate the Super Bowl this weekend, Dan Levy’s SNL sketch is the perfect example of what NOT to do!
During the Canadian star’s Saturday Night Live (SNL) hosting debut on February 6, he starred in a four-minute skit about enjoying the Super Bowl during the pandemic.

The sketch focuses on a group of five friends, including Schitt’s Creek’s Dan Levy, who have met up to enjoy the annual sporting event.
While the group all claim to have been following public health advice and being “super safe,” they also reveal that they’ve still been meeting up with friends, going to work, eating out and going to wrestling club with “20 to 30 really nice guys.”
It doesn’t take long for their face masks to come off, either!
“We deserve this!” the group says, as they continue to reassure each other that they’ve been “doing everything right.”
The tongue-in-cheek skit becomes gradually more chaotic, with the friends eventually eating chilli with their hands when the host doesn’t want to share utensils “because of COVID.”
It ends with the group realizing their sense of smell and taste have disappeared — a common symptom of COVID-19.
In addition to this hilarious sketch, Levy also stars in parodies set in Universal Studios Orlando and at a wedding.
During his opening monologue, he described the opportunity to host SNL as an honour and even received a surprise visit from his dad.
