In case you haven’t heard, Melissa McCarthy will be hosting the upcoming May 13 episode of Saturday Night Live. It was already virtually guaranteed that she was going to bust out her impression of White House press secretary Sean Spicer, given that it’s hilarious and SNL dropped this “I Feel Pretty” parody earlier this week.
But now, we have ocular proof that it’s 100% confirmed. Today, McCarthy was riding down 58th street in New York City on a motorized podium in her full Spicer costume to film a skit. You can check out the wild footage in the videos below.
What kind of gas mileage does that thing get? Might have to invest in one of those bad boys to cruise the sun-kissed streets of Ocean City this summer. People would be getting whiplash from all the rubbernecking they’d be doing.
For the first time since Dave Chappelle hosted, I’m pretty damn pumped to tune into SNL. McCarthy’s Spicer work is always a slam dunk, Alec Baldwin is scheduled to appear as Donald Trump, and with the ridiculous firing of James Comey, there will certainly be no shortage of material for the SNL writers.
