British people: they just aren't like us.

That's pretty much the premise of this absurd sketch that's about all things across the pond, including BBC news, British television shows, knighthood, parliament, Sting's sex life and dragons. Featuring Tom Hanks as Sir Michael Caine (in one of his many cameos of the night), Bill Hader as Sir Richard Branson, Andy Samberg as Bono, Kenan Thompson as Sir Mix-a-Lot, and Fred Armisen as the not-knighted Ringo Starr, the Knights of the Realm must decide how to dispatch of a dragon that is attacking London.

Spoiler alert: taking it "down the pub" for a pint is probably not going to work.
