Trivia

Real, live leeches were used in the sketch. They were provided by Eduardo Macagno, a young professor in the biology department at Columbia University in New York. Research ethics required Professor Macagno to safeguard the well-being of the leeches during their transport to and from the SNL studio, in a glass jar of spring water, on the NYC subway. The best part, according to the professor, was getting to sit in the audience and watch his favorite band perform: Santana. See more »
