Pedro Pascal Was Joined By His Longtime BFF Sarah Paulson On “SNL,” And They Really Are The Internet’s Mommy And Daddy

“You’ve made thousands of fancams of me, and I’m not sure what they mean.”

Saturday Night Live gave viewers some amazing fan service with a wholesome, yet thirst-inspiring sketch that brought in Sarah Paulson as a surprise guest to join her longtime friend and this week's host, Pedro Pascal.

We already know Pascal is the internet’s daddy.

Last month, he said it himself while on the red carpet to promote HBO's The Last of Us.

The less-than-30-second interview went viral as fans swooned over the 47-year-old's charm and self-awareness.

Fans LOVED seeing Pascal go along with the joke.

And they've been eating it up with even thirstier tweets and captivating fan edits.

Which brings us to this week's SNL. The "Fancam Assembly" sketch felt like a lighthearted intervention for Pascal's stans.

In the sketch, Pascal plays a teacher befuddled by his students. “You’ve made thousands of fancams of me, and I’m not sure what they mean,” he says.

The rest of the cast members, playing high schoolers, attempt to explain the chokehold.

"He's Daddy. I'm Mommy. And we're all a happy family," she said. "No crumbs left."

In real life, the two have shared a decadeslong friendship — since Pascal was 17 and Paulson was 18.

Paulson even interviewed Pascal for Interview magazine, which revealed they met in 1993, during Pascal's first month in New York City.
