Do you remember the supremely ’90s game show series, Supermarket Sweep? You know, the one where amateur shoppers would sprint through a grocery store studio set, furiously grabbing giant packages of frozen meat and obscene amounts of bulk candy to rack up the largest bill at checkout.
In a sketch that was cut for time from last week’s episode of Saturday Night Live, one contestant (Melissa McCarthy) stops at nothing to take out her competition (Vanessa Bayer) on their spoof called “Supermarket Spree.” First, she cheats by breaking into the Employee’s Only back room, loading up her cart with an enormous cut of Kobe beef and an industrial deli slicer. Then she makes a pit-stop to eat some mayonnaise. Totally normal.
Meanwhile, Bayer’s character takes her sweet time picking low-value items like macaroni and cheese and canned yams. But McCarthy doesn’t take that as a guarantee. No, no. Instead, she physically attacks Bayer and even strips her of her socks—and then adds those to her cart because why not?
The clip ends with McCarthy sprinting away from the show’s cameras after stealing the countdown clock. But we’re dying to know: Who wins?!
