Maria Bamford is one of our favorite people alive, and that’s no lie. Another favorite thing of ours – those weirdo crackling log videos that you put on your tv in your tiny apartment to pretend that you have a fireplace. Put ’em together? And you got some Yuletide magic, baby. We honestly can’t with this sketch from Bamford and writers Andrew Michaan and Zed Cutsinger. It’s just too g-dang festive.
Sure, you love your family. But there are moments with your kin folk over the holiday break that feel like being trapped in some kind of horror-comedy. Oh hey, kind of like the movie The Cabin In The Woods!
We noticed that there are a whole bunch of similarities between the Whedon classic and our family homes during the holidays. It’s kind of spooky, actually. Almost as if someone is… planning it? Anyway, enjoy finding these gifs a little ~too~ relatable!
1. You bring your new boo home for the holidays and travel drama has you like…
2. Your mom thinks it’s fine to barge into your room while you’re changing even though you’re a grown adult now…
3. Everyone gets mad at your for spilling the wine and you’re just like…
4. You have to try not to comment on your aunt’s very obvious plastic surgery…
5. Your elderly relative gets you some weird flea market present and you’re tempted to throw it across the room like…
6. You try to relate to your little cousins but remember you don’t know how to act around children…
7. It suddenly hits you that you’re related to these weirdos…
8. Someone suggests morning mimosas and you’re like…
9.Your friends show up after the family party to attack the leftovers…
If you were worried Emma wouldn’t kill in on Saturday night, well, you’re a fool. OF COURSE she about killed us dead with laughter, and OF COURSE they made her do a high school theatre sketch. This ep was definitely not afraid to experiment, and yeah not every sketch was perfect this week, but it was definitely dominated by the ladies.
So yeah duh of course we had to start with the candle song. Emma, Aidy and Kate all celebrate the magical candle that everyone has at some point given as a last minute gift. And they do it in high-90’s soft focus fur glamour.
Then of course there’s the theatre show. Every time they do one of these we’re like ‘eh do we need another’ and then every time we’re like ‘HOLY CRAP YES THIS IS AMAZING’. Emma’s little weird genderless pixie cut is truly every theatre teen.
Finally, we need to talk about the well sketch. This one’s for all the sensitive boys, and the moms who get them. But it’s also for anyone who’s ever longed for a well to whisper secrets to, and we’re pretty sure that applies to anyone reading this website. Here’s to you, bbs.
And by the way? This holiday season, don’t forget to give the candle.
