Employees introduce the new Southwest Airlines experience in 'SNL' sketch


Recommended Posts

Another Saturday Nigth Live commercial spoof means another skit with Michael B. Jordan in a nice button-up. I really can't complain. This time around SNL host Jordan and the cast portray Southwest Airlines employees presenting to viewers the new and improved Southwest experience.

The team at Southwest is sort of apologizing for the mess that happened over the holidays and according to them are "dedicated to a new, more modern Southwest Experience." These changes include updating the communications systems to 2008 Dell computers along with a "no more missing baggage" guarantee.

"From here on out, all luggage is sorted by color," says one southwest agent (Marcello Hernández).

"That makes it your responsibility, not ours," another agent responds (Michael Longfellow). So make sure to bring red bags if you're going to Dallas, cause the blue ones are heading to Charlotte.

Quickly, however, the allure of an actual apology from Southwest is gone as it becomes quite clear that the airline employees are sick of our shit. Jordan states that in-flight staff is being upgraded to former Waffle House employees because "these big bitches don't play."

Heidi Garner agrees that mistakes were made, but some of that was on you too.

"You bought a Southwest ticket," Garner says. "You obviously don't respect yourself, so why should we?"

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
