As Opening Day approaches, Kenan Thompson decided to bring back his impersonation of Red Sox slugger David Ortiz for the latest installment of Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live.
The faux-Big Papi chatted with hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che about the big plans he has in the works following his retirement at the end of this season.
Thompson’s Ortiz has a few business ideas in the works, including Welp, a more depressing yet hilarious version of Yelp.
“You looking for a good seafood restaurant in Cleveland? Welp, I can’t help you,” the comedian joked while describing the site. “I live in Boston, man. How I know what’s happening in Cleveland?”
Big Papi also hopes to start a SeaWorld inspired park called BeeWorld.
“It’s like SeaWorld, but it’s just bees,” Thompson joked. “Everybody gets stung.”
