Agree. That was hysterical. Kind of like "The Thing", or "Terminator", reconstituting itself and scurrying away to safety! Probably because it was genuinely original, and first-time concept. I don't remember every seeing that idea before, the exact opposite of the tired Gilly skits.
Same with "Kids of Paris", which was raved about here on the SNL thread the first time it was seen. Between the inspired dancing of Nassim and Tarram and others, and a very original never-before-seen idea, we were all struck by its novelty and cleverness, not to mention that it was visually and sonically appealing and entertaining.
That's also why I was so thoroughly amused with that Sophia/Penelope "hot Latina English teleprompter mis-reading" idea showing off the new girl last night. I didn't know where it was going originally (since I'd not seen one like it before), but once I realized that Kate/Penelope couldn't actually figure out how to pronounce the long scientific words fast enough for the ad, and that she was essentially just speaking fake-English fake-Spanish gibberish doubletalk which was made all the more humorous by the onscreen "subtitles" of what she was supposed to be saying... well I really began to laugh hard. I went backed and watched it a second time, again laughing hard, because her improvisational 2nd-language-English mispronunciation of what she was seeing in words on the teleprompter was so bizarre and funny. Very very funny idea... AND NOVEL..., and performed beautifully by both of them. That's funny!
