The Try Guys have tried hard enough to be the subject of their own “Saturday Night Live” skit this weekend.
NBC’s comedy institution sparked scandal surrounding YouTube stars who split from band member Ned Fulmer after an “internal review” of his “consensual workplace relationship,” according to a statement released today. last week on the official Try Guys Instagram account. Fulmer’s exit made national news, and “SNL” didn’t miss the buzz about the former BuzzFeed stars.
In a skit that initially appeared to be political, ‘SNL’ host Brendan Gleeson and actor Ego Nwodim played a CNN correspondent and anchor, respectively, but Gleeson interrupted a White House broadcast to report the latest news. by Try Guys.
“SNL” cast members Mikey Day, Andrew Dismukes, and Bowen Yang portrayed the three remaining Try Guys Zach Kornfeld, Keith Habersberger, Eugene Lee Yang, who kept planting CNN’s report: “We’re not working anymore with a white man, a woman man, Try Guy Ned.”

Nwodim’s CNN host, probably like many people who encountered the Try Guy news this week, didn’t quite understand the controversy, or even who the Try Guys are.
“You have to remember power dynamics,” Gleeson’s character told him absurdly. “He was a test guy and she was a food baby.”
“The whole story is that your friend had a girlfriend and didn’t tell you?” The character of Nwodim finally came true.

Yang and Day were about to break character and laugh during the skit, which parodied the Try Guys’ recent scandal videos. In a later sketch about medieval Europe, Day again appeared on the verge of laughter.
The Try Guys, which has over 8 million YouTube subscribers, began as a BuzzFeed web series in 2014 that chronicled the goofy exploits of Kornfeld, Habersberger, Lee Yang and Fulmer in trying new things – experiencing the pain of childbirth, cooking without a recipe, tasting-testing everything on the menu of a fast food chain and driving while intoxicated (under the supervision of a professional), to name a few. In 2018, the four left BuzzFeed and founded their own production company to continue the Try Guys brand.
