Hi! Did you guys see SNL's sketch last night about two disgruntled employees (guest host Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson" and cast member Fred Armisen) who are not in the mood to be entertaining tourists in a restaurant on Kauai? The Rock dances in a "traditional" style while Armisen strums the ukulele, and both of them chat up the vacationing diners... And don't say the nicest things to them.
There are lots of funny parts to it, but I'm still trying to sort out whether or not I liked the skit. On the one hand when I went to the Big Island and Maui for my honeymoon four years ago(I haven't been to Kauai), I found the people I met so kind and welcoming and I think that this skit is unfair to them. But I did notice that many of the locals were living in poverty so maybe this skit calls it like it is?
If you haven't seen the SNL sketch, I have posted it on my blog here (travelogged.com/travelogged/2009/03/snl-mock…). I am curious to hear your thoughts about the SNL sketch.
