‘Saturday Night Live’ Spoofs Ray Lewis [VIDEO]
This ‘SNL’ spoof of the animated and extremely emotional Ray Lewis will have you cracking up. Kenan Thompson does a fantastic job of impersonating Ray Ray.
Ray Lewis is a very intense guy. We’ve watched Ray Lewis be the vocal leader of the Baltimore Ravens ever since he was drafted in 1996. He is one of the best players in NFL history, and is arguably the most inspirational leader the game has ever seen.
The emotion that Ray Lewis has displayed throughout the NFL playoffs this year has been abundant and plentiful. Lewis has cried, danced, and cited biblical verses after beating the Colts, Broncos, and Patriots. All of the emotion that Lewis has shown makes him an easy target for SNL.
Kenan Thompson absolutely nailed this impression. The ending is classic. When Thompson talks about Ray Lewis ascending into heaven if the Ravens win the Super Bowl, I nearly fell over. This is one of the funniest things that I’ve ever seen on Saturday Night Live. Good stuff, Kenan. Awesome impression, bud. (By the way, click refresh if the video doesn’t appear initially).
