One Saturday Night Live sketch took an unexpected turn.
While talking to host Seth Meyers about his time on the sketch comedy series, the 42-year-old star said, "'Song for Daddy' was Justin Bieber and that sketch only went to dress, and everything that could possibly go wrong in a sketch went wrong during that sketch."
He continued, "Immediately I think the set almost fell on Justin Bieber. And I tried to make it like, a part of the sketch or something. And then I remember none of the props I was supposed to have were there. And it went—it just went terrible."
"My favorite memory of that was going upstairs after it happened and going up to the writers room on nine," the comedian recalled. "Still in my costume and walking into the writers room on the ninth floor and James Anderson is just on the floor, laughing, and he tackled me and started laughing because it was like, this—everybody was like, ‘That was…"
Bill added, "That was one of the classic like everything that could go wrong…it just ate it."
Host Seth Meyers reminded the comedy star that the incident also happened at the "height of Bieber fever" so the audience would have been much younger in age watching their favorite pop singer crushed under a set.
Bill joked, "Just seeing John Solomon just in the audience, pleasantly looking at me, going like—just knowing like—I was in front of a firing squad."
