Saturday Night Live: Kristen Wiig and cast take Mannequin Challenge

Posted on

It almost feels as though Kristen Wiig never left Saturday Night Live in a new promo for this week’s episode — in fact, it’s like she hasn’t moved at all.

That’s because Wiig, who returns to host the show Saturday, is putting her stamp on the viral trend known as the Mannequin Challenge, along with the SNL cast and crew.

Appropriately set to the sounds of Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles,” the one-minute video snakes through a frozen set that includes Cecily Strong getting touched up in the makeup chair, Pete Davidson improvising a Coke bottle fountain, Colin Jost and Michael Che hashing things out behind the Weekend Update desk, and Leslie Jones posing for a selfie. The whole thing culminates with a hero shot of Wiig and a last word from Jones.

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays on NBC at 11:30 p.m. ET. Watch the Mannequin Challenge above.
