The bit from spoof “Sands of Modesto” begins with a message from producers warning that “the staging of certain scenes has been altered for the actors’ safety” from the disease.
The couple soldiers on in their romantic scenes. Craig caresses with a fake arm from several feet away, he and McKinnon kiss through plexiglass, and are about to make love through plastic wrap — when Craig’s former wife (Cecily Strong) turns up. The scene implodes when Strong sneezes, and the actors head for the door.
It went downhill from there.
