Vanessa Bayer Moves to "I Don't Want to Know"

video
Named by the Huffington Post as one of the best Saturday Night Live sketches of 2013, "Divorce Meeting" features Vanessa Bayer (one of SNL's all-time hammers) and Paul Rudd as a bitter couple meeting in a neutral location to hash out their divorce agreement. However, they keep getting diverted away from their hostility toward each other when their favorite song, Fleetwood Mac's "I Don't Want To Know," keeps playing.

Judging from viewer comments, many who enjoyed this skit searched Google and Youtube for "I Don't Want To Know" soon after it aired. SNL fans will now probably associate the song (which was written in 1974 by Stevie Nicks and ended up on Fleetwood Mac's 1977 Rumors album) with this sketch just as much as they do Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Fear the Reaper" with "More Cowbell." For me, there's just something about Miss Bayer's dance moves that make me want to keep replaying this one. Would have also loved seeing more of the moves from (Vanessa's fellow SNL hammer) Nasim Pedrad, whom we catch groovin' to the song just a bit of at the very end of this sketch.

    1. Dave, as far as I know, this isn't available on Youtube. The Youtube logo you see below this video is now on all videos uploaded directly to Blogger.

    1. They did a new one last Saturday with Chris Hemsworth for "Dolce and Gabbana" and as usual, they were hilarious:
