Male voice: The unthinkable has finally happened. Out nation torn, broken. [Cut to a couple watching TV looking worried]You could move to Canada, but you love your country. What can a person like you do?
Kyle Mooney: What if there was a place where the unthinkable didn’t happen? And life could continue for progressive Americans just as before?
Sasheer Zamata: Now, there is.
Female voice: Welcome to the bubble.
Sasheer Zamata: Coming in January 2017, the bubble is a planed community of like-minded free thinkers. And no one else!
Kyle Mooney: So, if you’re an openminded person, come here and close yourself in.
Female voice: In here, it’s like the election never happened.
Kyle Mooney: Well, who knows what the hell is happening outside in their America? The bubble will be a fully functioning city state.
Sasheer Zamata: With things everybody loves. Like, hybrid cars, used book stores, and small farms with rawest milk you’ve ever tasted.[They are using a dollar bill that has Bernie Sanders’ picture on it.]
Kyle Mooney: That’s more likely. Even though you’re in the bubble, you’ll still stay connected to the world outside.
Sasheer Zamata: We’ve streamlined our high speed internet with onlythe good sites. Like, Huff Po, Daily Kos, Netflix documentaries about sushi rice and the explosive comedy of McSweeney’s.
Mikey: [reading something in laptop] Hmm, clever.
Sasheer Zamata: Need entertainment? The bubble has so much to do.
Kyle Mooney: Go to a bar and get engaged with a wider range of diverse view points. The bubble is a diverse community and safe space for everyone. We don’t see color here. But we celebrate it.
Female voice: And unlike the rest of America, anybody is welcome to join us. One bedroom apartment starting at $1.9million.
Sasheer Zamata: Planning is under way to give you everything you need.
Kyle Mooney: Except, police are firemen. Coz we haven’t found anyone who agreed to live here.
Sasheer Zamata: It’s their America now.
Kyle Mooney: We’ll be fine, right here in the bubble. Join us, starting in 2017.
Male voice: The bubble, it’s Brooklyn with a bubble on it.
