In somewhat of a shocker, Mad Max: Fury Road was the biggest winner at the 2016 Oscars over the weekend, pulling in six trophies. Naturally, because this is the Internet, no stone was left unturned in dissecting everything that happened at the ceremony. So with Mad Max having the most victories and stylistically inhabiting a corner far from anything else nominated, it, of course, wasn't going to escape the late-night rounds with a little good-natured fun.
Seth Meyers, whose Late Night With Seth Meyers show is criminally underrated and underwatched considering the kind of skits it regularly puts out, jumped on the opportunity. Featuring Meyers as one of the white-painted, aggressively lip-chapped War Boys from the film, the new sketch tore into their admittedly questionable motivations. For example, why on a trip to Gas Town do so many people need to go, wasting fuel in a post-apocalyptic world where it's incredibly scarce?
"It feels a little silly and, if I'm being honest, very irresponsible that whenever we go to get gasoline," says Meyers, "we drive a fleet of muscle cars that literally shoot out fire."
Valid point. As well as other gripes dealing with a guitar bursting into flames when played, painting everyone's bodies white daily, and the excessive chanting. No one likes a buzzkill, though, especially a crew of brainwashed lunatics, so Meyers takes a lot of heat for his antagonistic views.
