Since the first-ever remote episode of Saturday Night Live telecasted in April, the central attraction of the ‘Weekly Update’ became a well-placed Guitar on the couch behind Colin Jost. As Colin was filming from home, he did not pay much attention to the guitar. Little did he know that the Guitar would become the new sensation. People noticed it sharply and started going gaga about the well-placed prop on social media. As a result, soon the Guitar became the hero of the show despite having a very brief presence.
But Colin Jost has recently made a big revelation that the world-famous SNL Guitar does not even belong to him! Yes, you heard it right! Jost blamed his fiancé Scarlett Johannson for SNL’s viral Guitar moment.
“Scarlett had that guitar forever and it was in the quarantine, she was like, ‘Maybe I should learn to how to play,’ and just left it on the couch,” Colin Jost told The New York Times.
He further admitted that the Guitar was superbly placed there without his notice and after everybody pointed it out, he felt stupid as the 38-year old comedian had no awareness of it at all.
Colin Jost had previously also addressed the guitar in April. He humorously wrote, “I have never, nor do I pretend to play the guitar. Nor do I physically understand how it works. I just Mr Magoo’ed into having a guitar behind me.”
Currently, Scarlett Johnson and Colin Jost are quarantined together in their 4 million USD house in New York. The couple started dating back in 2017 and then got engaged in 2019.
