Artificial intelligence, beloved 90s cartoons and Saturday night live It sounds like an ordinary trio, but it turns out that when you combine them, you get comedy magic. Host Ryan Gosling and cast member Mikey Day played Beavis and Butt-Head lookalikes who inadvertently ruined a serious interview about AI in a sketch so good it broke SNL.

A sketch about an AI discussion over the past weekend Saturday night live went totally off track, and with good reason. Kenan Thompson (in a brilliant performance that's easy to overlook) played a tech expert sitting down with Heidi Gardner's talk show host for what should have been an in-depth conversation. But his talk about the dangers of artificial intelligence was made impossible by two (fake) audience members. Two strangers looked like real-life doppelgangers of Beavis and Butt-Head.

Seriously, look at these two. Please marvel at them.

Mikey Day and Ryan Gosling as Beavis and Butthead on SNL

Mikey Day should win an Emmy for his performance during this sketch alone and we're not exaggerating. What he's doing here is as good as it gets SNL.

But the Beavis and Butt-Head gag wasn't just awesome SNL sketch for how these two look. (That alone would have been enough to make us laugh. That sentiment extends to the last bonus visual gag, which we won't spoil if you haven't already seen it.)

With neither man realizing that they look like famous idiot cartoon characters, it was a truly amazing premise. It was a concept that proved to be too much for everyone in the studio. It absolutely killed it with both (real) audience members and SNL stars alike Gardner could barely stand it when he had to look directly at Gosling. And when she later turned around to see Day's Butt-Head and exposed gums, she had the most epic meltdown of all time. His reaction to her face is one of the best and purest heartbreaks in the history of the show.

Artificial intelligence could never come up with something so funny.
