Jay Pharoah of ‘SNL’ Parodies Usher with Cautionary Tale About Not Flossing, ‘Bad Kisser': Watch
By Marissa G. Muller
There’s usually a lot of flossing in big budget music videos – fancy cars, custom bling, luxe sets – but Saturday Night Live cast member Jay Pharoah takes the concept of flossing to a whole new level in his parody video of Usher’s “Good Kisser.”
Re-titled “Bad Kisser,” you can guess how the flossing comes into play.
In the video, Pharoah deals with a woman who needs a little help in the dental hygiene department.
It starts out real enough – waking up next to a girl and dealing with morning after-breath – and then gets progressively more absurd to the point where Pharoah uses floss in a dark way.
Riffing off Usher’s lyrics, he sings: “At 5 in the morning she ain’t brush so her breath it smell like s–t / She looked into my eye / I think she wanna take me for a ride / She opened up, it smelled like something died / It made me wanna commit suicide.”
