Before he was Saul Goodman and Jimmy McGill and then Saul again, Bob Odenkirk created one of the oddest, most beloved sketch shows around with David Cross. Mr. Show had a Zoom reunion last week (they’re all the rage) and so, naturally, they called up a bunch of people whose faces you recognize to make fun of Gal Gadot’s ridiculous celeb-packed “Imagine” singalong. And what better tribute could there be to this moment than Weird Al Yankovic’s ode to overcoming pickiness, “Eat It”?
As well as a good chunk of the Better Call Saul cast, the pair used up perfectly good favors from Bryan Cranston, Jack Black, Sarah Silverman, Rachel Bloom, Fred Armisen, John Hodgman, Amber Tamblyn, Paul Scheer, Michael Mando, Al Franken, and even banjo legend Béla Fleck — not to mention an extra special cameo at the end.
It’s not the first video to parody the bizarre, wildly uneven earnestness and production values of Gadot’s tone-deaf tribute, but it is the only one with a former U.S. senator.
