Bath Salt’s one hell of a drug. The recent spree of zombie/cannibal attacks occurring from ingesting a street drug “Bath Salts” is comedic gold, which Andy Samberg utilized on a recent guest spot on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night. Samberg created a mock PSA announcement discussing the importance of not eating your fellow man…or your dog.
The announcement parody included Samberg introducing Citizens Are Not Naturally Ingested By Americans League (C.A.N.N.I.B.A.L), Roland Gift of The Fine Young Cannibals, and references the face-eating attack that happened in Miami, Florida calling the attacker a “white-trash Hannibal Lecter.” His simple solution being “Don’t Eat People” and “Do Eat Things That Are Not People.”
Despite the controversy over the parody PSA coming too soon, Samberg is continuing his ability to crack up fans by mocking current events and pop culture with these series of bizarre events. This is more than welcome since his departure form Saturday Night Live and in the wake of trying to make sense of the world. Sometimes all you can do is mock.
