The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Andrew Garfield flees for his life on the May 3 episode of Saturday Night Live. For this sketch modeled after an action thriller trailer, he escapes to a gas station and explains that he’s unwittingly committed a crime: daring to say that he doesn’t like Beyonce‘s “Drunk in Love.”
“But I like most of her music,” Garfield says to the clerk.
“MOST?” The clerk cocks a rifle to send Garfield running, then sobs. “She’s the Queen B.”
This “film” isn’t The BeyHive, but The Beygency, rated NC-17 for “Mild Language Against Beyonce.” Garfield’s not the only one being hunted, either; FOX’s 24 stars Kiefer Sutherland and Mary Lynn Rajskub also appear, though not for long. (Spoiler: Rihanna‘s to blame.) Thanks to its grim premise, it all amounts to one of SNL‘s best sketches in recent history. Watch up top.
