WATCH: United Airlines stops Jimmy Fallon from finding love in this hilarious sketch

Rory Cashin

You that your controversy must be pretty bad if the world has actually forgotten to talk about Donald Trump for a few days.

While last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live saw the return of Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer, the program’s host Jimmy Fallon made sure that the targets were wide and varied this week.

In the sketch below, Jimmy plays a man who just wants to get his ex-girlfriend back, who is currently cosying up with her new beau.

He plonks down a boombox, starts singing Savage Garden (shudder), and does everything he can to win her back, until she reveals the reason why she dumped him in the first place.

Also, the sketch ends with a nice little pop-shot (pun play!) at Pepsi, a callback to this genius sketch they played out last week.
