A very awkward Wayne Gretzky + an unbelievably bad script = the most bizarre SNL skit ever made:
We remember SNL in the late 1980's and early 1990's putting out some of the funniest stuff on TV -- "Waikiki Hockey" is not an example of this. There are many cringe worthy moments in there...like when Chad says to Kitty:
"I didn't know angels could fly so low."
Ouch...painful to watch. Or when Chad went to lay a 'kiss' on Kitty (with moves like that how did Gretzky manage to hook up with Janet Jones?)...that's not just cringe worthy, that's David Brent from "The Office" cringe worthy. Nice job Gretz!But that song is comedy gold:
"Mona luckahiki means hockey
Mona luckawiki means love
A moonlit ice rink means
romance with my baby
and the stars above."
"Kiki Hockey, Waikiki Hockey!
Kiki Hockey, Waikiki Hockey!"
Classic. No other way to put it.
Mr. Gretzky....Welcome to the Hall of Fame (again)
