The Bubble

[Starts with video clips of election rallies]

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.
