Disney likely never saw this coming...

Saturday Night Live featured a musical parody of Frozen II starring cast member Kate McKinnon as an out-of-the-closet Elsa, Cecily Strong as her sister Anna and J.J. Watt as Kristoff. The Houston Texans star hosted the show for the first time.

"We all know / we all know / we've all known since you were a tween / When you dressed as Brienne of Tarth / On three separate Halloweens / I don't care what DIsney says / The Twitter storm rages on," Strong sings.

"The lack of any romantic interest doesn't bother me anyway," Elsa deadpans.

Watt's Kristoff later debuts a new, original and rather naughty song about himself, titled, "Big and Woke," and cast member Mikey Day plays Olaf the snowman, who sports a carrot in a very inappropriate place, and solicits hugs.

"I guess I'm just growing up before your very eyes, Anna!" Olaf says.

Also on SNL, Watts parodied Bachelor star and pilot Peter Weber. Strong, McKinnon, Heidi Gardner, Aidy Bryant, Melissa Villaseñor, Ego Nwodim and Chloe Fineman played contestants trying to charm him.

"I know the girls told you a rumor about me and it is true—I have brown hair," Bryant's character tells him. "But you should also know that my mouth is a vacuum hose."

The episode also featured the return of cast member Pete Davidson, who appeared in the Cold Open. He was absent from the previous show, hosted by Adam Driver.

At the end of the episode, while standing with the cast members for the send-off, Watt paid tribute to Kobe Bryant, who died at age 41 last Sunday in a helicopter crash, along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna Bryant and seven other people. Watt wore a Los Angeles Lakers jersey bearing the NBA icon's name and his number—24.

Luke Combs was the musical guest. He performed his songs "Lovin' on You" and "Beer Never Broke My Heart."
