Hey, has anyone online made a “Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting)” reference whilst writing about Sir Elton John pulling double duty as host and musical guest on this week’s Saturday Night Live? Yes? Probably? Well, I’m making one now, too. Because I’m an unoriginal piece of shit looking for a way to intro this week’s SNL promo in a semi-fun way.

You see, Elton sings a real famous-like song called “Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting)”; but it’s totally going to be alright for laughing this Saturday. Right? Get it?

Ugh. Check out the promo below. The quick nod to Benny Hill is super sweet.
