Peeta Mellark: From Baker to Breaker

November 25, 2013

Who else saw Catching Fire this weekend?! So good. But don’t worry–I’m not gonna give away any spoilers (although you’ve probably already read the entire Hunger Games trilogy at least four times, right?).

Instead, I want to talk about what happened when Josh Hutcherson, aka bad-boy baker from District 12 Peeta Mellark, hosted “Saturday Night Live” this weekend.

Hutcherson teamed up with Jay Pharoah and Kenan Thompson in a mock documentary about a b-boy group, Matchbox 3, that performs on subway cars in NYC. Now, we already know that there is some real talent out there on the NYC Subway. Exhibit A: Tapper Josh Johnson, who tapped his way from the subway to national television and Madison Square Garden. But these three aren’t exactly ready for Madison Square Garden.

Beyond being gloriously hilarious, this video also features some clips of real subway b-boy performers, so it’s worth a watch just for that:
