Queen Elizabeth was 'signing off' in 'brilliant' Jubilee Paddington sketch, says creator
The Queen starred with the much-loved bear for a sketch that embodied their mutual attributes – "kindness, tolerance and politeness," as well as their love of tea and sandwichesOne of the country's most recent, collective and fondest memories of Queen Elizabeth II came very recently when, during her Platinum Jubilee celebrations, Her Majesty starred in a sketch with none other than Paddington Bear.
As part of the Fall TV premiere week fun, Saturday Night Live returned to fans for Season 48 with a premiere that was missing quite a few familiar faces, of both those who’d, as well as the . Though guest host and Top Gun: Maverick star Miles Teller and musical guest Kendrick Lamar kept fans entertained, the episode sparked a wave of non-ideal headlines hanging on the claims that the the viral “Toilet Paper Bears” video created by online filmmaker Joel Haver. Now, the fan-favorite content creator has offered his own response.
Chelsea Clinton Shares Her Honest Thoughts About SNL Spoofing Her As A Kid
SNL spoofed Chelsea Clinton when she was just a kid and now she is sharing her honest thoughts about it.In the episode’s sketch, the guys talked about “President-elect” Bill Clinton and named the top ten things they love about him. The #2 item on the list was Chelsea Clinton, and they talked about how she looks. Due to it being inappropriate, SNL cut out that part of the sketch from any future reruns and the official YouTube video, and Clinton herself didn’t find the sketch funny.
Those who watched SNL’s Season 48 opener witnessed stars Kenan Thompson and more dressed in big and vibrantly blue bear suits, for a sketch that centered on Teller’s bear aiming to reach his dancing dreams rather than following the butt-wiping footsteps set in place by the family business. After those familiar with Joel Haver’s work took to social media to air out their gripes, Haver shared a reaction video on, and offered a far more understanding approach than many others online, saying:
Part of Haver’s point of view comes down to him just being a smart dude and understanding the numbers game when it comes to producing comedic videos for online enjoyment. There are currently thousands upon thousands of people on YouTube, TikTok and beyond creating multiple videos per week (or per day), so the law of averages states that not every video is going to be the most unique and original slice of genius. Granted, there’s a line between random similarities and bafflingly close ones.

Joel Haver also cops to the idea that he’s currently at a point in his video-creating career where an incident like this, regardless of the validity of the allegations, doesn’t directly bother him nearly as much as it would have at an earlier point before he had as big of a following. He says he can see why others who are still on the rise would be more upset about thereportedly copying their work.
Given that we may never get a smoking gun, or whatever the opposite is, when it comes to the “Charmin Bears” sketch, it’s probably easiest to let bygones be bygones, despite the fact that SNL has been accused of stealing sketches many times over throughout the years, though not always with this kind of specificity involved. Haver seems to be letting it go for now, while taking comfort in the fact that he (and many others) think that his “Toilet Paper Bears” sketch was the better of the two. He continued:
