Saturday Night Live is a show renowned for its star-studded array of hosts, outstanding live performances and surprise cameos. Last week’s episode was no different, and, after the reveal of Wonderland cover star Kid Cudi in an Off-White dress, many of us thought that things couldn’t have gotten any better. Enter Timothée Chalamet and his tiny little flute.
During the episode, which saw Carey Mulligan play host, resident SNL comedians Pete Davidson and Chris Redd – along with the episodes musical guest Kid Cudi – offered a hilarious rap sketch about the industry’s use of the miniature flute. From flutes replacing pool cues and backscratchers, to Kid Cudi dressed as Harry Potter, the rap trio brought us a Migos-esque bop complete with references to Future’s “Mask Off” and the Beastie Boys’ “Sure Shot” – both songs that noticeably featured the instrument in question. Just when we thought we had seen it all, Pete Davidson introduced a flute-wielding Timothée Chalamet. Dressed in a beanie, orange and black zebra print cardigan and gold chain, the actor offers us a flute solo and jumps around with the trio, adding to the bizarre yet wildly pleasing visuals.
While this mix of talents may seem odd to some, this is not the first time we have seen the likes of Timothée Chalamet, Kid Cudi and Pete Davidson on our screens. Remember back in 2019 when the picture of Kanye West and the three of them emerged on Instagram? Clearly, this collaboration has been in the works for some time and it is safe to say it was better than any of us could have ever dreamed.
