“The Californians” Sketch on Saturday Night Live

Here’s a short SNL sketch parodying Californians in the soap opera style:

A few observations:

  1. Not everybody in California is blond. I should know. I’m Asian.
  2. We certainly don’t talk in that accent.
  3. And we have plenty of other things to talk about besides directions.
  4. We don’t dress like that, either.
  5. Nor do we stare into mirrors all the time to admire ourselves.

Other than that, it was completely accurate! I thought it was a rather funny parody of Californian stereotypes. Perhaps they should have included surfing, as well… (I also enjoyed how many of the directions I actually understood, since they were referencing streets and places around UCLA and LA in general.)
