The Brittany Murphy / Abby Elliott SNL skit
(The video is still up)

Just a couple of weeks ago SNL made a pretty funny parody video roasting (the late) Brittany Murphy. It has been taken down from sites like Hulu & but luckily we have it.

In the skit, that appeared on the Dec. 5 episode of “Saturday Night Live,” Seth Meyers, the Weekend Update anchor, says that Ms. Murphy had recently been fired from a film called “The Caller.” Then his castmate Abby Elliott, impersonating Ms. Murphy, enters. The fictional Ms. Murphy seemed to be disoriented and still under the impression she was on an episode of SNL that the real-life actress had hosted in 2002.


"It was reported this week that actress Brittany Murphy was fired from her upcoming film, ‘The Caller,' for being a detriment to production," says "Weekend Update" anchor Seth Meyers.

"And ... oh noooo," he adds as she appears next to him.

"I'm really honored to be here hosting ‘Saturday Night Live,'" a loopy looking Elliot says, playing Murphy.

"No, Brittany, you're not hosting," Meyers explains,

Faux Murphy says she's been fired, and tells Meyers that it's not so bad.

"I got a plan," she says. "When the movie comes out, I'm going to go to the theater and say, ‘Booooo." And then the audience will join in and say, ‘Boo' … Best plan ever."

Meyers, responds, "I wouldn't call that the best plan ever."
