Shakopee Mayor Thanks SNL For Skit

SHAKOPEE, Minn. (WCCO) — The mayor of Shakopee is thanking “Saturday Night Live” for bringing his city into the national spotlight.

Shakopee Mayor Brad Tabke sent a letter to SNL creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels thanking him for the skit, which depicts a fictional hip-hop station out of Shakopee in the middle of announcing school closings due to snow.

Tabke says it was very exciting that his town was randomly chosen, and that the show did some research and used real schools in the area.

In the letter to Lorne Michaels, Tabke thanked the show for putting Shakopee in the national spotlight, even if it was at the expense of a few well-deserved laughs.

The skit also featured Lindsay Lohan as one of the radio station’s DJs.

    It was nice to see Shakopee in that spotlight.

    Too bad the skit wasn’t at all funny.

    That mayor must be a fool. They make fun of his city and he thanks them. He should sue SNL for making us look like idiotds.

      Maybe you’re an idiot, I think it was actually one of the few funny things on that show anymore.

      • Mad Dog

        No, you are an idiot if you think that SNL is funny.

    • jackactionhero

      Calm down, Stresserella.

  • pumphandle-

    Perhaps if you can read I said 1 of the few funny things ever on that show anymore, that’s a shot at the show, you have to be pretty rigid to not laugh at your own area being mocked.

  • We'er coming

    SNL needs to do more Palin. She is comedy gold.

  • See BS

    Is this why so many people own record labels in the Twin Cities?
