Chris Pine is ready to dance himself clean. The Wonder Woman actor goofs off with Kate McKinnon in a new, bizarre Saturday Night Live promo, in which the pair party through Studio 8H to the sounds of LCD Soundsystem’s “Dance Yrself Clean.”
The camera follows them backstage as they dance through the hallways, try on wigs in the hair and makeup room, and ransack the prosthetics department. Adding to the absurdity, McKinnon rocks a fake pregnancy bump as Pine dons a pair of monster claws.
Pine hosts this weekend’s episode of SNL, the second of four historic episodes in which NBC broadcasts the sketch comedy series live across all time zones in the U.S. LCD Soundsystem will appear as the musical guest this weekend.
“I’m super out of breath because they just made me dance here at the actual stage of Saturday Night Live,” Pine said in a behind-the-scenes video released on Tuesday. “I couldn’t be more excited —it’s this Saturday. The writers strike didn’t happen, so we’re going full steam ahead.”
