Connie Britton Loves Amy Schumer's 'Friday Night Lights' Sketch & These Other Celebs Probably Loved Their Parodies Too
"Ain't it good to be the coach?" It is, and the original Tami Taylor agrees. Wednesday night, on Late Night with Seth Meyers, the world found out that Connie Britton loved Amy Schumer's Friday Night Lights parody, "Football Town Nights." The actress even went so far as to say that she was “flattered and honored" and "overwhelmed with tearful joy." Me too, Connie. Me too. Britton said that her favorite bit was Mrs. Coach's ever-expanding wine glass, which started as a simple standard cup at the beginning of the sketch and evolved into a goblet the size of a small child. "It must of broken your heart that you guys never thought of that!" Meyers quipped. "It really meant a lot to me because Tami's wineglass was very important. It was my idea, so I felt very seen by Amy," Britton added.
It's a good thing that Britton saw the Friday Night Parody for the homage and the tribute that it is. Inside Amy Schumer thinks highly of the show, particularly because they used the show as the basis through which to brilliantly discuss the important topic of rape culture in sports. But Britton is far from the first celebrity who Schumer has parodied, and she can't possibly be the first to love the parody.
In honor of Britton being such a good sport, here are six other celebrities Inside Amy Schumer has parodied that had better love their parody as much as Britton loves hers.
1. Meghan Trainor
"Milk Milk Lemonade" is as much a celebration of the booty as "All About That Bass," but this time, with poop jokes! Meghan Trainor must love the party and the potty.
2. Blake Lively
As "Amy Lake Blively," Schumer heightens the expectations of the male gaze and being the "cool girl" in celebrity interviews. As someone who has lived this for years, Lively must find this frustrating, and have thus found the sketch cathartic.
3. One Direction
I always had a feeling that the boys of 1D agree that what they're singing is beyond cheesy and wish they could sing "Girl, You Don't Need Makeup" instead. No one will ever tell me differently.
4. Honey Boo Boo
Our favorite toddler in a tiara has a great sense of humor, and is probably already a fan of Schumer and honored to see herself parodied on the show.
5. Aaron Sorkin
As the creator of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, an ill-fated series about life backstage at a late-night sketch show, Sorkin must be a fan of sketch comedy, and therefore appreciate the best sketches, even when they're about him.
6. Henry Fonda and 12 Angry Men
Without a doubt the most potent satire of the show thus far, Schumer cast John Hawkes in the Henry Fonda role as a lone dissenter on a jury. This time, they're talking about whether Schumer is hot enough to be on TV, rather than a murder charge — but both are of equal consequence.
We would only be so lucky as to be parodied by Amy Schumer in this lifetime.
