‘Santa Traps’, An ‘SNL’ Sketch Starring Martin Freeman as a Deranged Man Selling Bear Traps to Catch Santa

Santa Traps” is a Saturday Night Live sketch that stars Martin Freeman as Michael Braslow, a deranged man selling bear traps used to catch Santa Claus. The sketch also features Cecily Strong as Braslow’s wife who gives backstory about Braslow and his Gordie Howe-related head injury. The sketch was cut for time from Freeman’s recent episode of SNL, but was uploaded to the show’s YouTube channel.

How do the traps work? Simple. Pull the clamper wide open, and place a whole live salmon on it. Then, lay back. Close your eyes, and dream of Santa burgers.
