Scarlett Johansson Becomes Ivanka In SNL's 'Complicit' Perfume Ad

Introducing Complicit: “The fragrance for the woman who could stop all of this, but won’t.”


Every time Scarlett Johansson is on "Saturday Night Live," she kills it and ber fifth appearance was no different.

In fact, her Ivanka Trump was the highlight of the show.

Johansson appeared as the first daughter in a brutal ad for faux fragrance called "Complicit."

The brand speaks for itself.


In the mock ad, Scarlett Johansson, playing Ivanka, just unveiled her newest fragrance for the woman who could something about it, but doesn’t.

"She's beautiful. She's powerful. She's complicit," the commercial's sultry voice-over said as Johansson-as-Ivanka posed for the camera. "She's a woman who knows what she wants, and knows what she's doing."

“She’s loyal, devoted, but probably should have bounced after that whole 'Access Hollywood' bus thing,” the voiceover says as Johansson looks dead-eyed into the camera while wearing a ball gown and diamond earrings. “Oh well.”

Later, the commercial says, "I bet when she watches 'Titanic' she thinks she's Rose. Sorry girl, you're Billy Zane." Johannson's Ivanka puts on lipstick in the mirror, but the reflection is actually Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump. The message? Like father, like daughter.

But that wasn’t the punchline. The Billy Zane jab was definitely good enough to be, but SNL really went for the kill with one final line.

“Complicit, the fragrance for the woman who can stop all this, but won’t. Also available in a cologne for Jared,” a reference to Ivanka's husband and one of Trump's top advisers, Jared Kushner.

Trump supporters and maybe even the president himself will definitely not be happy about the sketch, but viewers on Twitter loved it.
