Papyrus – SNL

Papyrus – SNL


>>>IT HAPPENED AGAIN.
I THOUGHT IT WAS BEHIND ME, BUT THE DREAMS CAME BACK.
I WAS UP ALL NIGHT. I CAN’T EAT.
I CAN’T SLEEP.>>WHAT’S WRONG?
>>IT HAUNTS ME.>>OH, STEVEN NOT THIS AGAIN.
>>I FORGOT ABOUT IT FOR YEARS, BUT THEN I REMEMBERED THAT
AVATAR, THE GIANT INTERNATIONAL BLOCKBUSTER, USED THE PAPYRUS
FONT AS IT’S LOGO.>>AVATAR, LIKE, THAT MOVIE FROM
NINE YEARS AGO?>>YEAH, HE JUST HIGHLIGHTED
AVATAR, HE CLICKED THE DROP DOWN MENU, AND THEN HE RANDOMLY
SELECTED PAPYRUS. LIKE A THOUGHTLESS CHILD
WANDERING BY A GARDEN YANKING LEAVES ALONG THE WAY.
>>AND SO NOW YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT THE SEQUELS THAT ARE
COMING OUT?>>THEY ARE MAKING MORE?
>>YEAH, WELL, I THINK I HEARD THAT.
>>THEY CHANGED THE ARTWORK. THEY FIXED IT.
>>IT LOOKS SIMILAR.>>HE JUST GOT AWAY WITH IT.
THIS MAN, THIS PROFESSIONAL GRAPHIC DESIGNER.
WAS IT LAZINESS? WAS IT CRUELTY?
>>YOU SHOWED ME THIS BEFORE. I DON’T THINK THIS IS LITERALLY
PAPYRUS. MAYBE THAT WAS THE STARTING
POINT BUT THEY CLEARLY MODIFIED THIS.
>>BUT WHATEVER THEY DID, IT WASN’T ENOUGH!
AND NOW HERE I AM DOING WHAT I VOWED TO NEVER DO AGAIN, SITTING
OUTSIDE HIS HOUSE, HOPING TO CATCH A GLIMPSE OF HIM TO SEE
HIM DOING HIS LITTLE THINGS, LIVE HIS INSANE LITTLE LIFE.
I THINK ABOUT IT EVERY TIME I SEE PAPYRUS.
>>OKAY. WHERE ELSE DO YOU EVEN SEE THIS
FONT?>>HOOKAH BARS.
TEQUILA MERCH OFF BRAND TEES. SHAKIRAM MERCH.
>>MY GOD. ARE YOU OKAY?
WHAT HAPPENED?>>DO YOU REMEMBER THE AVATAR
LOGO.>>YEAH.
IT WAS TRIBAL YET FUTURISTIC.>>PAPYRUS.
>>SURE.>>I KNOW WHAT YOU DID.
I KNOW WHAT YOU DID! [ LAUGHTER ]
[ APPLAUSE ] [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

  1. as a graphic designer I have to say this is the funniest shit I've seen in my whole life. I keep coming back to this over and over again and every time is like the first. thank you SNL for this wonderful gift!

  2. What's funny is that I live in France and the whole font joke isnt a thing over here. People actively use comic sans over here unironically, every time I notice it and I'm like guys come on why is this menu using comic sans. Everyone looks at me like I'm crazy, talking about fonts like a maniac.

  3. God bless you, Julio Torres. Totally see why you told Ophira Eisenberg this isn't ragging on Papyrus. It isn't. It's ragging on the hypothesized lazy graphic designer who couldn't be bothered to generate an original logo. Glad you found a way to stay here and make us laugh.

  4. Let's all be honest here, if this was real life, I'm scared but I'd totally believe it. I mean how sick does james cameron gotta be to highlight and select that…

  5. For how unfunny SNL has been over the years. They do manage top put out some great gems like this

    SNL, tone it down on the political shit you aren't funny at that. Stick with this.

  6. Lol no joke coz there's six billion people in this world so a guy like this must definitely exist somewhere crying about the font.

  7. I remember sitting in my art class in highschool thinking about this exact issue and being irrationally annoyed by it. This sketch speaks to me on a near-spiritual level
