The “Saturday Night Live” alum made his debut as host on the long-running sketch comedy show over the weekend and decided to tackle his rich tabloid life in a “Barbie”-inspired parody.
In a sketch called “I’m Just Pete” — a play on Ryan Gosling’s musical number “I’m Just Ken” from the box-office smash — Davidson mocks his ability to make headlines for everything but his actual work, like buying a Staten Island Ferry with Colin Jost, stints in rehab and his feud with Kanye West (“People online still call me Skete, because of a guy whose name I can’t say legally”).
And — of course — he makes fun of his very frequent romantic entanglements.
“I’m just Pete / My dating life is not discreet / I generate tons of publicity for everything except my comedy,” he sings as a fake tabloid flips through photos of him being linked to Michelle Obama, Flo from Progressive and Lois Griffin from “Family Guy.”
Although Davidson does a pretty good job making fun of himself, he does also take the opportunity to take a dig at his critics.
“I’m just Pete / And I like jugs / I’m mentally ill and I’m on drugs / But hey, I’m still in Super Bowl commercials,” he sings while flipping off the camera.
But like any self-deprecating piece of comedy, Davidson ends the bit with another jab at himself — this time, a reference to the reckless driving charge he received after he crashed a car into a Beverly Hills home in March.
