New York - Posing as the airline pilot of the flight he was kicked off of, Alec Baldwin has apologised to himself on Saturday Night Live.
The actor appeared on the sketch programme's Weekend Update on Saturday night to lampoon Tuesday's incident, in which he was kicked off an American Airlines flight for refusing to stop playing a cellphone game before takeoff.
As a Southern, mustachioed airline pilot, Baldwin issued an apology for the incident. The joke, though, was how obvious the ploy was.
The actor referred to himself as an "American treasure" who was playing "a word game for smart people".
Weekend Update host Seth Meyers repeatedly questioned the thinly veiled performance, asking Baldwin, "Are you sure this is the right way to handle this?"
