A “Saturday Night Live” skit with, from left, Jason Sudeikis, Nasim Pedrad, Bobby Moynihan and Ryan Phillippe. Mr. Moynihan and Mr. Phillippe play a rap duo called Thrilla Killa Klownz.

A “Saturday Night Live” parody of “Miracles,” featuring the cast’s Bobby Moynihan and the guest host Ryan Phillippe as a rap duo called the Thrilla Killa Klownz, was shown this month. Meanwhile, Insane Clown Posse’s official YouTube post of the “Miracles” video has been viewed more than 1.4 million times.

VIOLENT J Two clowns floating around in space, swearing, rapping about wonderful things. I get that that’s funny to an outsider.

SHAGGY 2 DOPE I remember back in the day when Weird Al Yankovic did “Amish Paradise,” off Coolio’s “Gangsta Paradise.” Somehow Coolio got mad. If Weird Al wanted to do one of our songs, I’d be like, “Hell yeah.” To me, it’s the same thing with “Saturday Night Live.”

It also includes the origin of the recurring skit (with interviews from the SNL writers):

MICHAEL PATRICK O’BRIEN, WRITER, ‘SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE’ It was during the week Drew Barrymore hosted. Her boyfriend, Justin Long, the Mac guy, was hanging out, and he was like, “Hey, have you guys seen this 14-minute infomercial for the Gathering?” I love live music, but at some point grew to hate music festivals.

COLIN JOST, WRITER, ‘SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE’ There was an attitude in that commercial of: Look at how awesome this is. When you really thought about it, some of the things they were advertising were not that awesome. Like shower in a trailer. Or a mud field. Or the fact that it’s really hard to get to.

In December “SNL” broadcast a parody of the Gathering commercial. It advertised a nonexistent event called the Kickspit Underground Rock Festival and featured the cast members Jason Sudeikis and Nasim Pedrad announcing a never-ending list of unpleasant offerings, like mud-eating contests and helicopters that spray the crowd with viruses.
