On “Weekend Update” during last night’s Saturday Night Live, hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che welcomed four people with their backs to the camera—all dressed as though they were in a barbershop quartet—who Jost said had recently won The Voice. One by one, Cubs stars Anthony Rizzo, David Ross, and Dexter Fowler turned around, followed by SNL vet and Cubs superfan Bill Murray.
Jost asked the group to “put into words what it means to be named the first winners of the Weekend Update’s The Voice contest.”
“It’s unbelievable,” Rizzo replied. “I can’t describe it,” said Ross. “It’s the best thing we’ve ever done,” said Fowler.
“You on the end, you look familiar,” Jost asked Murray. “Did you use to work here?”
“I did,” Murray replied. “But that was so many lifetimes ago. Right now, for me, it’s all about our music.”
Murray then announced that they’d be singing an “original composition titled ‘Go Cubs Go.’” With the help of some backup singers, that’s just what they did. Watch the video below.
Later, Rizzo, Ross, and Fowler joined show host Benedict Cumberbatch for a sketch about male strippers dancing for a dead grandmother called “Surprise Bachelorette,” during which the trio made a series of bad baseball/sex puns–“We’re about to hit a ‘Granny Slam’,” Fowler said–before dancing around in skimpy clothes. Watch it below.
Enjoy this while you can, for soon the Chicago Cubs and Bill Murray will become unbearable. But until then, revisit other Murray/Cubs viral moments like the time he crashed a White House press conference, the time he sang a Daffy Duck-inspired rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame,” the time he sang The Band’s “The Weight” with Eddie Vedder, and the time he emotionally and drunkenly interviewed members of the Cubs following their historic victory in the World Series.
