Colin Jost Blames Scarlett Johansson For That Viral Guitar Moment on 'SNL'

Colin Jost is finally explaining that viral moment from one of Saturday Night Live‘s virtual shows, which had a guitar perfectly framed in the background of his shot.

At the time, Colin posted on his Instagram account about it, writing, “My favorite observation from last episode, even among my fellow cast members, was: ‘Great job including the guitar, douchebag.’ This might sound incomprehensible but I did not know it was on the couch, let alone perfectly framed behind me. I have never, nor do I pretend to play, the guitar. Nor do I physically understand how it works.”

Now, Colin is actually explaining that the guitar belongs to his fiancee, Scarlett Johansson!

“Scarlett had that guitar forever and it was in the quarantine,” Colin told the New York Times interview. “She was like, ‘Maybe I should learn how to play,’ and just left it on the couch. It was so perfectly framed there and then everyone pointed it out and I was like, ‘How can I be so dumb?’ I had no awareness of it at all.”

A couple months ago, there was actually some news about Colin‘s future with SNL.
