“Secret Santa is my favorite day of the year,” Damon says to the group sitting around the decorated Studio 8H stage, complete with a Christmas tree. Ronson is the first to open his gift, which turns out to be a turkey sandwich from SNL castmember Beck Bennett. “Remember that one time I was eating a turkey sandwich and you were like, ‘Looks good,'” Bennett asks, to which Ronson awkwardly replies: “I think I remember, so you put it in a box and gave it to me to me now, thanks.”
Next up was Cyrus, who received a gorgeous diamond necklace from Damon. “Matt this is way too much, you said we were keeping it modest this year,” the 26-year-old singer said. “I know I got carried away, I just love Secret Santa,” the 48-year-old actor insisted. “Thank you, that’s so sweet, and better than a turkey sandwich,” added Cyrus playfully.
SNL member Cecily Strong finally gives Damon his gift, which immediately draws a disappointed look from the upcoming host. “I made it myself. It’s a scarf obviously, I didn’t finish it,” Strong says as Damon pulls loose-knit fabric pieces from the gift box. “Do you like it, why don’t you put it on?”
“I’m so hot I’m afraid I’ll get like a rash of some kind,” the actor interjects. The group soon starts convincing Damon to put the scarf on, with Cyrus claiming, “This was your idea. It’s Secret Santa, c’mon.”
He eventually gives in and the group applauds. “I kind of feel like you guys are applauding to make me feel better about it,” he says quietly. “Ruined my favorite day.”
