Kate McKinnon makes Chris Pratt feel dirty in 'SNL' promos

Posted on

Saturday Night Live Chris Pratt

Kate McKinnon knows, at least in part, what fans want out of Chris Pratt’s gig hosting the premiere of Saturday Night Live‘s 40th season: abs and embarrassed giggles. Pratt sheepishly declares that he’s not a piece of meat, but ultimately, relinquishes and bares his now-famous stomach for McKinnon when she hounds him. “I feel dirty,” he says.

McKinnon also makes Pratt open up some—well, a lot—of jars of pickles and gets as close as she possibly can. When Pratt protests that he’s married, she says: “Oh, to Anna Faris? Never heard of her. But she’s welcome to join the party, human sexuality’s a dazzling spectrum.” Unfortunately for Pratt, however, Star-Lord is not McKinnon’s favorite Guardian. Not even close. Look, Chris, it’s hard to compete against a raccoon and a tree.

Pratt hosts Sept. 27 with Ariana Grande as musical guest.
