Saturday Night Live Parodies “Bambi” as Revenge Flick [VIDEO]

The Saturday Night Live crew is never one to hesitate at poking fun at the entertainment industry. This time around they’ve re-imagined Bambi as a live-action revenge flick, with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the starring role.

The Disney classic “Bambi” was a fixture in American homes throughout the 1940s and onward, being named one of the American Film Institute’s 10 Top 10 movies in the cartoon genre in 2008.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, the story centers around a young deer who teams up with other woodland creatures, including Thumper and Faline, to make these creatures aware of hunters.

SNL takes the story a step further in this quick parody sketch, casting a revenge-seeking Dwayne Johnson as Bambi, Vin Diesel (Taran Killam) as a mumbling and bumbling Thumper, Tyrese Gibson (Jay Pharaoh) as a smelly but swaggy Flower, and Michelle Rodriguez (Celicy Stone) as the machine-gun toting Faline.

 

In the end a group of hunters gets theirs in an over-the-top, but funny recreation of the Disney classic.

It’s so ridiculous that you can’t help but laugh.

Or at least giggle.
