Twitter Feels Attacked By Dan Levy’s “Saturday Night Live” Zillow Skit
Emmy-winner Dan Levy made his “Saturday Night Live” debut on Feb. 6, and one particular sketch is hitting a little too close to home. During an episode that featured dad Eugene Levy in a quarantine box and a sketch about a “totally safe” Super Bowl party, the “Schitt’s Creek” star and fellow SNL cast members put a sexy, relatable spin on a mock commercial for the real estate site Zillow—one that tapped into all of our collective fantasies.
“Yeah, sex is great, but have you ever browsed Zillow listings?” is the overall ethos of the sketch, which also featured the likes of Bowen Yang, Ego Nwodim, Heidi Gardner, and Kyle Mooney. “You’re in your late thirties now,” Yang flirtatiously narrates, while Levy adds, “And sex isn’t really doing it for me anymore.” The new adult fantasy? “Real estate is your sex now, and our listings are just standing by waiting for you to browse them,” Gardner adds in her bedroom voice.
A guest house with its own kitchen, an updated colonial with landscaping, and a “big gross” mansion in North Carolina serve as dirty talk in the sketch. Don’t worry about getting too carried away with the fantasy: contacting the listing agent (played by a delightfully abrasive Cecily Strong) will result in a rude awakening.
Given the much too relatable nature of the skit, Twitter users had a lot of thoughts about the blatant personal attack.
Zillow CEO Rich Barton even weighed in on the skit and tweeted, “Wait. Have we been marketing @zillow wrong all these years???”
And the official Zillow account had a message for Levy, too.
