"Deer crossing, motherf--kers!" Saturday Night Live capitalized on both Disney's latest pull for live-action classics and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's aptitude for action flicks on March 28. The guest host, 42, who called himself "franchise Viagra" during his musical monologue, slipped into a deer suit to play the beloved woodland creature, Bambi, in a live-action sketch.
Cecily Strong played Michelle Rodriguez, Jay Pharoah was Tyrese Gibson, and Taran Killam imitated Vin Diesel — Johnson's Furious 7 costars, who were all supposed to be rough and tough versions of Bambi's forest friends.
"When I was a boy, they took away my mother, now it's time for them to pay … deer-ly," Johnson quipped, putting a spin on the classic Disney tale.
Watch the hilarious clip to see what happens when Bambi and his friends attack the hunters' lodge!
