Saturday Night Live's Kyle Mooney portrays Nardwuar in tribute video

Dec 19 2017, 7:45 pm

Saturday Night Live cast member Kyle Mooney has proved that the love for Canada’s favourite interviewer, Nardwuar The Human Serviette, stretches far beyond the border.

In a tribute video posted to YouTube, Mooney plays the role of Nardwuar as he interviews Matt Mondanile of the bands Ducktails and Real Estate. Except for the part where Mondanile denies being related to Master P (despite extensive research), the impression is pretty bang on. Mooney captures the Nardwuar’s enthusiastic cadence, while sporting the trademark tartan tam and generously bestowing his interview subject with personalized gifts including a rare vinyl record by power-pop band Shoes, a gift certificate for The Kosher Nosh deli, and the keys to Bruce Springsteen’s motorcycle.

Nardwuar is currently recovering from a stroke suffered at the Mint Records Christmas party in early December.
