'SNL's' Heidi Gardner Explains What She Was Thinking When She Couldn't Stop Laughing During Ryan Gosling's Beavis And Butt-head Sketch Master

"SNL's" Season 49 host Ryan Gosling left the audience and himself in stitches as they laughed over sketches like the sequel to his memorable short about "Avatar’s" font, his alien abduction sketch with Kate McKinnon, and more. But the most memorable sketch of that night that kept audiences and even the cast laughing was the one where Gosling dressed up as Beavis from "Beavis and Butt-Head." Memorably, Heidi Gardner broke character with her laughter during the bit, and now she's explained what was going on in her head throughout that hilarious moment.

The "Beavis and Butt-Head" sketch truly has to be the highlight of Ryan Gosling’s episode of "SNL." In it, Heidi Gardner played a NewsNation anchor hosting a town hall discussion about the use of AI with an MIT professor (played by Kenan Thompson). However, it was hard for audiences and even cast members in the sketch to take this discussion seriously when you had two distracting audience members (played by Gosling and Mikey Day) who looked exactly like the leads of one of MTV’s best cartoons. Obviously, laughter couldn’t be contained throughout the entire room.
