Twitterati want Tina Fey to impersonate Sarah Palin’s rap in ‘The Masked Singer’ and repeat 2008 'SNL' spoof
As the ex-governor of Alaska hits the stage with a rap on the popular reality show, fans confuse her with Tina Fey and want the actor-producer-writer to revisit her spoof of the politician
Actor, writer and producer Tina Fey took the country by storm in 2008 with her impersonation of Sarah Palin on the hit show ‘Saturday Night Live’. The politician was the governor of Alaska and was running for vice president at that time. Fey’s spoof gained so much popularity that the 'SNL' episode remains iconic to date.
Now, after more than a decade, when Palin performed on national television on the music reality show, ‘The Masked Singer’, rapping away to ‘Baby Got Back’, people couldn’t help but remember the 'SNL' sketch enacted by Fey and are going crazy on social media. People now want Fey to spoof the rap performance in an upcoming episode of 'SNL'.
One Twitter fan says, “I cannot wait until Tina Fey spoofs this.” Seconding the idea, another user says, “This better be on SNL. Someone get Tina Fey on the phone immediately”
Some fans are almost sure that Fey will be back on 'SNL' this very week and do the sketch in the upcoming episode. “Crossing my fingers that Tina Fey is coming back to SNL this week to do Palin on the Masked Singer”, says a fan.
It also appears that fans would be disappointed if the SNL sketch doesn’t happen. “If @nbcsnl doesn’t have Tina Fey playing Sarah Palin singing Baby got Back on the show this week, I’ve lost all faith in everything, says a fan.
But what’s more interesting and funny is how people confused Palin with Fey, knowing how similar they look. A fan on Twitter says, “First I thought it was Tina Fey, then to my horror, I realized it was Sarah Palin. No to infinity!!!”
“Or is that Tina Fey impersonating Sarah Palin impersonating Tina Fey?” added another.
On the other end of the spectrum, Tina Fey's hit NBC comedy series '30 Rock' is being turned into an animated show, which will stream on Netflix. Stay tuned for more information.
