Forever awesome actor Willem Dafoe is originally from Appleton, Wisconsin. (Dafoe also attended the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and was a part of Theatre X.) Forever awesome actor Willem Dafoe hosted Saturday Night Live Saturday night, and his Wisconsin roots figured into his monologue. Was Dafoe called on to do a Wisconsin accent? Yes. Did he perform said accent and utter the word “bubbler”? See for yourselves (the bit starts at the 2:00 mark):

God bless you, Willem Dafoe. Your (exaggerated) nod to your home state sure beats the last time SNL did the “Wisconsin accent” thing.

Also, here’s Pete Davidson as Aaron Rodgers:
