Tina Fey & Amy Poehler's 'SNL' Promo Would Like to Remind You That There’s More to This Weekend Than 'Star Wars'
This weekend is going to be awesome, you guys: Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip is premiering on Friday, Dec. 18 (OK, OK, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens too), and ABC is airing the third Democratic Presidential Debate live from Manchester, New Hampshire on Saturday night! Or, if those TV events are not your cup of tea, you might enjoy Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's Saturday Night Live promo, which comes just days before the release of their movie, Sisters, which premieres on Friday. (Along with, you know, that space movie about robots.)
The two former cast members teamed up with current cast member Kenan Thompson for the video teasers, which will really get you psyched for this week’s SNL. Tina and Amy are back! Tina and Amy are together! Tina and Amy are going to fuse into one all-powerful super feminist comedy hero and save the world! I made up that last one!
So now we’re wondering, what do the pair have planned for their episode? Will Sisters costar and former SNL cast member Maya Rudolph make an appearance? Maybe she and Poehler will reprise their regular sketch, Bronx Beat? Will Poehler and cast member Kate McKinnon meet for a Hillary Clinton-off? Will Michael Che and Colin Jost do the right thing and cede the Weekend Update desk to its rightful queens? (Probably not, but they should. I mean, really.)
One thing’s clear from their promo videos: This is gonna be good. Watch as straight man Thompson does his best to keep up with the two hilarious women:
When They Shout Buzzwords While a Confused Kenan Just Watches
Just stand there and look pretty, honey. They've got this under control.
When Kenan Feels Useless
"I feel like I don't need to be here," says Kenan, which, let's be honest, he really doesn't. Tina and Amy sweetly comfort him. Who can compete with them?
When Tina & Amy Prove They Are One, & Blow Kenan's Mind
For this promo, the two speak all their lines in perfect unison, a skill that must have taken ages to master. Kenan's reaction is probably scripted, sure, but it's pretty uncanny how good they are are talking like twins.
When Our Girls Are Bummed About the Lack of Snow, & Kenan Steps Up
I mean, you can't say no to Tina and Amy, right?
Watch all of the promos here, and mark your calendars for this Saturday night.
