Usain Bolt on SNL (NBC)

On Saturday night, SNL took on the vice-presidential debate with a little help from Olympian Usain Bolt. The sketch seemed to quote Paul Ryan word for word, while the comedian who played Joe Biden improvised, playing up the Pennsylvania native's seeming inability to stop smiling. And to cap off the sketch and lambast Ryan's flubs regarding his marathon-running times, when the vice presidential hopeful says that he won an Olympic medal at the 2012 London games, Bolt appears and hilariously confirms the opposite.

Watch SNL skewer both Biden and Ryan below:
