Adele Saves Thanksgiving from Awkward Family Conversations in Hilarious SNL Sketch.

If you’re not ready to deal with your relatives discussing their politically incorrect opinions at the Thanksgiving dinner table, Adele’s got your back. During the opening monologue of his first SNL show in 14 years, the 46-year-old detailed exactly how the line came about, explaining how it was the very first scene of his filmed acting career. In a sketch from Saturday’s episode of Saturday Night Live, which was hosted by Matthew McConaughey and featured musical performances from Adele herself, a family’s holiday dinner quickly goes downhill.

The family’s patriarch claims that “the refugees are all ISIS in disguise,” and an aunt agrees, saying, “I actually saw an ISIS in the A&P today when I was picking up the yams!” And right when this aunt starts asking her niece’s African-American boyfriend offensive questions, the youngest member of the family gets up from the table with a sigh and pushes play on a CD player. As soon as Adele’s “Hello” starts blasting out of the speakers, everything changes: All of their differences are put aside in favor of wistfully lip-syncing along to the song that has captivated the world. And although the song pauses first when grandma and grandpa arrive – with uninformed opinions of their own – and again when the oven timer goes off, each time “Hello” resumes all issues are laid to rest. This producer and I start talking and four hours later we get kicked out of said bar. “In the taxi on the way home he says ‘Hey, McConaughey, you ever done any acting.’ And I say ‘Well no, not really’.

As “Hello” plays, the Thanksgiving turkey becomes less burnt and everybody at the table gradually begins to morph into Adele, starting with her long, perfectly manicured fingernails and fur coat. He says ‘Well, I’m doing this movie and you might be right for this part.’ “My character, David Wooderson, he has three lines in the entire film. Now what I mean by that, a launch pad line is a line that if a character really believes it, then I can feel like I can write a whole book on this character. “The scene goes like this: Wooderson’s hanging out at a pool hall with some buddies, some girls walk by, he smacks one of them on the a** and his buddy says, ‘Man, you’re going to go to jail for that, Wood Man.’ And Wooderson says ‘Nah. You know, what’s he about?’ And I tell myself, ‘Wooderson’s about four things: he’s about cars, weed, rock ‘n’ roll, and chicks.’ “I look around, where I am, well I’m in my 70’s Chevelle.
