Jason Segel Sings With Muppets and Mocks Masturbation on 'SNL'

November 20, 2011, 4:28 pm GMT

The host went to the length of inviting his Muppet friends to perform with him in the opening monologue and act out masturbation moves in an ad sketch.



Jason Segel kicked off "Saturday Night Live" by saying he was nervous about the opening monologue, but that's before he jumped into a musical number with the Muppets. The actor was the host of the night, singing how he believes in flying pig and mother goose but he can't believe he's hosting "SNL".

Kermit, Miss Piggy and the other Muppets helped in the song but they soon got angry when finding out that they were not assigned to host the show as well. "When people go to a Muppet movie, they say, 'Gee, I can't wait to see the human!' " Kermit said sarcastically. The frog then proved why he's worthy to host by impersonating Ray Romano.

The opening monologue was followed by a sketch about Regis Philbin's replacement on "Live". Among "those" who vie for the co-host post opposite Kelly Ripa were Denzel Washington, Zooey Deschanel, Ashton Kutcher and Ricky Gervais. Segel played Antonio Banderas who was looking forward to have sex.

Segel made another impression in a sketch about a new technology on mattresses. Introducing "Kemper-Pedic Me Time Mattress", Segel is a husband who is a night owl, worried of waking up his wife at night with his "late night activities" such as french pressing, pizza dough pounding and rolling dice on bed.

There were also surprise appearance by Paul Rudd in "The Vogelchecks" and Olivia Wilde in the Digital Short. Florence Welch who was the musical guest also made a cameo on a sketch called "New Jack Thanksgiving".
