blackface?[edit]

Despite what the referenced article says, Jon Hamm was not in blackface (no black makeup) and was clearly not portraying a black character. If you watch the episode, that's actually the whole point of the sketch - that the black character was cultured and intelligent while the white character was a hick with stereotypical "black" qualities. Tracy Morgan's character even calls Jon Hamm's character a "cracker," a term applied to white people. Yes, you have a reference for the blackface thing, but just because an LA Times article says something doesn't make it true... 63.246.93.243 (talk) 05:01, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

Right I don't understand your problem with the article--please explain... —Justin (koavf)TCM 06:12, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
Not a big problem, just that the end of the article stated that the episode featured Jon Hamm in blackface, which is clearly not the case (despite the referenced LA Times article). I've removed the mention of blackface in the interest of "being bold." Cheers. 63.246.93.243 (talk) 14:41, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
Sources But it's not for us to say whether or not this performance constitutes blackface--we have a reputable source claiming it. —Justin (koavf)TCM 18:01, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

the ending kissing[edit]

So in the East Coast version, one of the final shots (just after Paul McCartney walks off camera) is Alec Baldwin and Scott Adsit suddenly making out vigorously. So... was that scripted or was it improv? Gotta say, if it was improv, whoever didn't start it certainly stepped up! Either way, it was freaking hilarious! 107.9.45.143 (talk) 02:23, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
