Tournament Fighter SNL Sketch Love Letter to Mortal Kombat

Saturday Night Live is a bit of an American institution. It has been running for  40 years and over this time has helped launch the career of many comedians and actors including Bill Murray, Martin Lawrence, Eddie Murphy, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. Some of its sketches have entered the pop culture zeitgeist like the Melissa McCarthy Sean Spicer sketches, Tom Hank's Black Jeopardy and David S. Pumpkins, Debbie Downer at Disney Land and Alec Baldwin as Trump.
Now a new sketch shown this week may enter the pantheon of greats. Tournament Fighter introduces us to Boo Boo Jeffries, an empowered young woman who hates fights and whose greatest strength is her relationship with her mom. The problem? She's in a fighting game reminiscent of Mortal Kombat. The sketch is  a love letter to 1v1 fighting games of my youth but can be appreciated by non gaming fans alike. Enjoy.
