Watch: SNL’s inevitable Charlie Sheen spoof

Pin it

 

Sheen fatigue will be upon us soon, so now's the time to enjoy the bounty of entertainingly defiant locutions and nutty behavior before he sobers up for good. Last night, Sheen debuted his live Ustream webcast, "Sheen's Korner," a muddled, fifty-minute trainwreck during which he addressed the Brandon Davies BYU scandal, dumped on Nancy Grace and Dr. Drew, and revealed his new "Winning" tattoo on his left wrist, among other topics. Viewer count fluctuated throughout the broadcast, but over 113,000 hits were recorded at one point. The overall consensus was, he lost.

Then, in the cold opening of SNL — hosted by a game but disappointing Miley Cyrus — Bill Hader spoofed Sheen as the host of "Duh! Winning!," sponsored by Tiger Blood and clean baby urine, featuring Christina Aguilera (Abby Elliot) as bandleader, and an eclectic group of guests in John Galliano (Taran Killam), Muammar Gaddafi (Fred Armisen), and Lindsay Lohan (Cyrus). Hader was adequate as Sheen, but Jimmy Fallon would have really kicked it up a notch. Killam's Galliano had the best line, saying "I have no ugly friends, I dress like a meth-ed out Musketeer, and I've got a mustache that whispers 'I'm a bad person!'"
