You have to see Chris Pine lip sync in this SNL RuPaul’s Drag Race sketch

Meka Beresford May 7, 2017

Chris Pine and the cast of SNL have proved themselves to be brilliant potential contestant of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

The Drag Race themed sketch sees the Star Trek actor play a mechanic on his break with his other work colleagues when they all begin to talk about the show.

Each pretends to know nothing about Drag Race, but it is revealed that they are all closet fans of the show despite their overly “masculine” facades.

“I don’t care how good Trinity Taylor’s tuck is, she’s from the pageant circuit, right, those b*tches never win,” one, played by Bobby Moynihan, exclaimed.

“Or at least that’s what people who watch the show has said around me I guess,” he added – trying to hide his knowledge.

However, one pushed the group of men to reveal how much they love watching the show.

“Let’s just be honest, we watch RuPaul’s Drag Race and we love it,” they said.

The mechanics keep talking about the show when Moynihan’s character says he thinks he’s be “pretty great at lip syncing”.

Moynihan and Pine then launch into a lip sync battle of the song “Expensive” by Erika Jayne.

Pine is crowned the winner, while Moynihan is told to sashay away.

SNL has had a brilliant political revival with the help of Melissa McCarthy doing killer impressions of Sean Spicer, as well as guest Alec Baldwin appearing as Trump.

Kate McKinnon has also done side-splitting impressions of Hillary Clinton at the presidential debates, Kellyanne ‘couch legs’ Conway and the Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
