Newark made the big time Saturday night, earning a spot in a SNL skit skewering Amazon's process of finding a home for its second headquarters, known as HQ2.
Amazon, which is holding a search contest pitting North American cities against each other in a contest that could result in as many as 50,000 jobs and billions in investment, selected 20 finalists last week to move to the second round.
Newark was among the 20 finalists and one of only four cities to make the SNL skit, which featured Boston, Atlanta, Newark and Miami.
With Amazon founder Jeff Bezos sitting behind a desk, delegations from each of the cities explained why they would be best suited for Amazon's headquarters.
Newark was represented by former mayor and U.S. Sen. Cory Booker.
"My name is Cory Booker and I am so proud to be representing Newark, a city on the rise. By the way, I know we're not getting this at all. That gives me tears of rage. This is a nice office. Anyway have a good day. Hashtag, tears of rage."
