SATURDAY Night Live guest host Regina King starred in a sketch based on a woman who went viral after using Gorilla Glue in her hair.

The Oscar-winning actress and director teamed up with the show’s Kenan Thompson as they played compensation lawyers Commode & Commode in a fake commercial.

In it, they both sport stiff hair and tell viewers that if this has happened to you, “you are not alone and this is not your fault” and “you are not dumb”.

Kenan’s Denzel Commode says: “We’ve all been there. You ran out of hair product, and you used Gorilla Glue instead.”

Playing Latrice Commode, Regina adds: “Fact – every day as many as one people fall victim to using Gorilla Glue as a beauty product and they deserve compensation.”

The skit is a reference to 40-year-old Tessica Brown who posted a video on February 4 that her hair had been stuck in place for a month after she ran out of her usual hair product and opted to use the extra-strong superglue instead.

“Gorilla Glue girl” Tessica Brown went viral for using the product on her hair

Brown, who referred to herself as “Gorilla Glue girl” on social media, has since had an operation to remove the substance and is now considering legal action against the company.

But SNL mocked the incident and testimonials from other ‘victims’ who had turned to the industrial adhesive or other home products such as Sharpies and Silly Putty.

Regina, as Latrice, said: “It’s a mistake that could happen to anybody, like brushing your teeth with Preparation H.

“Big Gorilla is a billion dollar industry and we deserve half.”

Kenan, as Denzel, adds: “Or double.”

The pair then mused about the difficult logistics of court proceedings.

“We know it’s gonna be hard taking a gorilla to court and suing him over his glue,” Latrice admits.

Denzel adds: “What if he gets mad and starts tearing up the courtroom?”

Regina is a multi-award winning and nominated actress and director

Regina, who was nominated for a Best Director Golden Globe for her debut feature One Night in Miami, also starred in a fake MTV dating show skit called What’s Your Type? In it she played a single woman looking for love.

In another, the Watchmen star played one of five suburban moms who gathered to celebrate their friend Trish’s (Aidy Bryant) birthday. 

All of the moms gifted cheesy decorative wooden signs from a store called Home Stuff with puns and quotes on such as, “Wine gets better with age. I get better with wine.”
