Woody Harrelson, Jennifer Lawrence + Friends Spoof Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ on ‘SNL’ [Watch]
The year was 1989 -- Taylor Swift was born, and actor Woody Harrelson hosted 'Saturday Night Live' for the first time. During his return to the television show's stage over the weekend, Harrelson paid homage to both events while spoofing 'Blank Space,' from Swift's most recent album.
"With all due respect to Miss Swift, I know a little bit more about 1989 than she does," Harrelson says early on in his monologue. "Even if the memories are a little bit fuzzy ... because of the drugs."
His herbal hobby was more of the butt of his jokes than Swift's album, especially after he was joined by 'Hunger Games' co-stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson. All three had yet to be born in 1989, but the man who plays Haymitch Abernathy thought back on moments like the Berlin Wall falling and his time on 'Cheers.'
That's about all he recalled, but Hemsworth and Hutcherson remembered what Harrelson told them about that year. "The Berlin Wall was torn down by the Kool-Aid Man" and "Einstein invented wifi" were two of the best quips, although Lawrence describing her singing voice was pretty entertaining.
“When I sing, I sound like a deer caught in a fence,” she says before the three men resume the spoof of Swift's song.
“I smoked a lot of herb … before I came here tonight,” Harrelson says. Even though he mistakes Lawrence for Swift, the singer did not appear on stage.
