Well, it's official. The world's most famous botched art restoration, lovingly referred to by its biggest fans as Beast Jesus, has successfully infiltrated the realm of mainstream popular culture in a new skit on Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update this past weekend.
Cecelia Gimenez, the Spanish do-gooder once shamed for her efforts and now lauded internationally for her memeable art, made a guest appearance on the popular New York-based show. Of course, it wasn't actually the Ecce Homo transformer herself, it was last year's cast addition, Kate McKinnon, doing a hilarious rendition of the befuddled octogenarian.
McKinnon's Gimenez describes her work to Weekend Update Host Seth Meyers: "Jesus, he look at me with his enormous, round monkey face."
She continued, "He had beautiful hair that became a scarf. It was a scarf made of hair that wrapped around his little, brown, expressionless face. And then he look at me with his dead black eyes...I say Jesus, why you look like a shark?"
That's possibly the most accurate description of Beast Jesus we have ever heard. What do you think, readers?
