‘SNL’ took aim at itself Saturday night, poking fun at Pete Davidson and Colin Jost for sinking several hundred thousand dollars into a boat … and it was hilarious.
It started with Alex Moffat bellying up to the anchor desk, playing his character, “Guy who Just Bought a Boat.” Moffat then turned things by intro’ing Pete Davidson as “Guy Who Just Bought a Ferry.”
Pete was funny, telling Colin, “We’re boat people now, Colin. I mean, you always were. You look like you own the yacht they rent out for rap videos.”
Then, giving a little clue about how this all went down, Colin responded, “It’s very exciting. We thought the whole thing through.”
As we reported, Pete and Colin just bought the John F. Kennedy at auction … it was part of the Staten Island Ferry fleet. They ponied up $280,000 for the vessel, and plan to rehab it … then turn it into a club that will be docked somewhere in NYC.
As you may know, both Colin and Pete are Staten Island guys … he rode that same ferry to NYC when he was performing standup, and Colin took the ferry back and forth when he was attending high school in Manhattan.
