SNL Spoofs 'Wild Wild Country' and It's Perfect

Nasim Pedrad made a guest appearance in Saturday Night Live's spoof of the Netflix documentary, playing Ma Anand Sheela.

Last night, Saturday Night Live took on Wild Wild Country, Netflix's documentary about Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and the Rajneesh movement, and brought in an SNL alumna to help out. Nasim Pedrad returned to play Ma Anand Sheela and was magnificent.

Kenan Thompson, meanwhile, was a guy who wanted to join the movement because, as he said, "I mean there was ass everywhere."

The entire skit was incredible, but the best part might have been when Pedrad casually dropped Ma Anand Sheela's famous line: "What can I say, 'tough titties.'"

Pedrad was on SNL from 2009 to 2014, and then left to join guest host John Mulaney's now-defunct show Mulaney. She's since appeared on The Mindy Project and New Girl, but fans were very happy to see her back on Saturday Night Live.
