Watch Eminem join Pete Davidson for ‘Stan’ Christmas spoof

"Dear Santa, I can't believe the year is almost over/ It's getting colder, I'm a year older, but I'm still your soldier"

Pete Davidson performed a Christmas spoof of Eminem‘s ‘Stan’ on Saturday Night Live this weekend, and he was joined by the real Slim Shady himself.

The late night sketch comedy show returned last night (December 5) after an extended break, with a new episode hosted by Ozark‘s Jason Bateman. Among the standout moments was Davidson’s ‘Stu’ sketch.

In it, the comedian recreates Eminem’s infamous ‘Stan’ video, which originally featured Dido and a crazed fan who writes several letters to the rapper, each one getting more and more unhinged as the track progresses.

Davidson takes on the role on Stu, who repeatedly writes to Santa Claus asking for a PlayStation 5. The clip also features cameos from Dido (played by Kate McKinnon), Elton John (Bowen Yang), and Eminem himself.
