James McAvoy and His Heavy Scottish Accent Struggle to Help Passengers Land a Plane on SNL

Saturday Night Live just keeps giving us quality content! On Jan. 26, guest host James McAvoy not only impressed viewers with his rapping skills, but he also made them belly laugh in the "Air Traffic Control" skit. In the clip, McAvoy — a Scottish actor — assumes the role of an air traffic controller who must help a group of people land a plane after their pilot is knocked unconscious. The only problem is that McAvoy's Scottish accent is so thick, the passengers have no idea what he's saying. He tries to keep them calm, telling them to take a deep "bree-th," but it's no use. Watch McAvoy try to help the distressed travelers land a wee plane in the video above!
