    Live from New York, it was a night of laughter, music, and culture as Bad Bunny, the internationally renowned musician, actor, and WWE wrestler, made his anticipated hosting debut on Saturday Night Live. Sporting shades and a stylish boxy suit, Bad Bunny, whose real name is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, not only showcased his comedic flair but also wore the hat of the musical guest for the evening.

    Monologue Magic with a Bilingual Twist

    Kicking off the show, the Latin sensation amusingly introduced himself, saying, “Thank you very much. My name is Benito, and I’m very excited to be here on Sabado Gigante — oh, I’m sorry. SNL”. Addressing the elephant in the room, he humorously addressed concerns about his English-speaking abilities, stating, “People are wondering if I can host this show because English is not my first language. I don’t know if they know, but… I do whatever I want.” Adding a touch of humor and pride, he further elaborated on his English proficiency, humorously noting his preference for intimacy in Spanish.

    Turning the monologue into a multilingual affair, Bad Bunny then transitioned into Spanish, giving viewers a taste of his native tongue and pride in his Puerto Rican roots. To the audience's surprise and delight, the screen displayed a cheeky caption, “SPEAKING A SEXIER LANGUAGE”, setting the stage for an unexpected guest appearance.

    Pedro Pascal: The Surprise Translator

    In a delightful twist, none other than Game of Thrones and The Mandalorian star, Pedro Pascal, emerged as Bad Bunny’s quirky translator. Converting Bad Bunny’s extensive Spanish soliloquy into a playful English sentence, Pascal quipped, “He says I’m blessed to be here with my favorite actor, Pedro Pascal.” Amidst their humorous banter, Pascal advised Bad Bunny to self-deprecate for laughs, only to be met with the confident response from the singer, “I don’t have any!”

    The evening was not only a testament to Bad Bunny's versatility as a performer but also a nod to the global influence of Latin culture in mainstream entertainment. As fans reminisce over the hilarity and cultural fusion of the episode, they eagerly anticipate the next delightful surprises SNL has in store.
