The sketch comes less than a week after Amazon announced it planned to split its second headquarters between New York City and Crystal City, Va.

During this week's "Saturday Night Live" show, host Steve Carrell dressed up as Amazon's CEO, Jeff Bezos, to explain the thought process behind choosing NY and Arlington, Virginia for its new headquarters, dubbed HQ2, which were announced earlier this week.

The sketch also addressed those who were upset about the company's choice of new headquarters locations in NY and Virginia, as many other cities had tried to court the retail giant.

Carell's Bezos then explained that some felt the choice was Bezos' way of trolling the President, who has been critical of Amazon in the past, by choosing his old hometown of Queens and new location near Washington, D.C. "But that's simply not true".

But the frustrated 20-time Grand Slam victor could not consolidate his position, losing the next game as Zverev levelled at 2-2. Then he added, "We'll see this week as well". "I was more aggressive today". "The crowd have been absolutely awesome all week".

Additionally, the phone is rumoured to include a triple rear camera setup with standard, wide-angle and telephoto lenses. To ensure a seamless user experience, a black border would supposedly hide the camera when the device is playing a video.

Bezos claims Amazon chose the new locations because they were "ideal for growing business" and not "to make Trump think about how I'm literally 100 times richer than he is".

He also explained a few new Amazon innovations, including drones outfitted with human hair (modeled after Trump of course), converting buildings (formerly owned by Fred Trump) into public urinals, and their new delivery system, Amazon Caravan: "Any package going to any Trump building will get delivered by hundreds of Honduran and Mexican immigrants and I'll pick up the bill", he said.

Amazon announced its intentions this week to go live from NY with one of its new headquarters locations. "We don't really need you to hang around anymore", his wife Nancy Carell said, alongside their uninterested children Elisabeth and John. "I guess that's the only book with four Chapter 11s".

The special message ended by saying this was a "sick burn" by Amazon's Jeff Bezos.
