Last night Saturday Night Live scored an excellent episode, with great sketches that were amusing, sharp and pointed, with strong performances all around.

This week's installment of Saturday Night Live featured a spoof fragrance ad skewering Ivanka Trump's crucial-but-undefined role in her father's web of chaos.

At one point during the sketch, after the little gizmo helmet slipped off the dog and Johannson put it back in place, Bennett seemed to ad-lib about her "condescending attitude" that made him "vote for Trump in the first place".

The mock ad spot for her brand's "Complicit" scent shows Johansson in a perfume commercial that checks off all the boxes: Alluring outfit, glamorous ambiance and slow motion shots. "A feminist.an advocate a champion for women, but like, how?"

As Scarlett re-applies some make-up, her mirror-image reflects her father, Donald J. Trump, and the voice-over says, 'She doesn't crave the spotlight, but we see her. "She's Ivanka", a female narrator can be heard saying in a sensual tone, as Johansson walks into what looks to be some sort of high-class, black-tie event. In fact, there wasn't a single bad sketch in the entire show this week, and we're betting there will be a cut for time sketch showing up on YouTube this week that was too good to leave unseen.

In a sketch titled "Shud the Mermaid" Scarlett Johansson played against type big time, joining Kate McKinnon's Blobfish-like and completely creepy mermaid named Shud as her best friend, the equally horrifying "Kunk".

The commercial continues with glamour shots of Ivanka and then comes the first comedic bulls eye: "She's handsome".

He was told by a commander leading the troops (played by Kenan Thompson) that everyone in California had "been killed by the aliens".

Ivanka knows where her bread is buttered. "Who here loves Trump? She's loyal, devoted, but probably should've bounced after the whole Access Hollywood bus thing", the voiceover continued. The award-winning actress appeared in a two-minute parody commercial for a fragrance called "Complicit".
