Former Saturday Night Live star Bobby Moynihan may have his own TV series, Me, Myself & I, premiering on CBS soon, but that doesn’t mean he’s left the Emmy-winning sketch comedy show behind. In fact, Moynihan recently stopped by Entertainment Weekly: The Show and talked about that famous “Single Ladies” sketch from when he first started on the show. You know the one…

In fact, the idea came from Moynihan — a newcomer to the show at the time.

“I remember Kenan coming over and showing me [Beyoncé’s music video] and thinking that I would love to try doing something as these backup dancers,” recalls Moynihan, “and one of the writers, John Lutz, and I sat down and wrote it together.”

You can watch the clip of Moynihan above talking about his new show, what song he memorized to impress a girl in middle school, and what it was like working with Queen Bey.

Me, Myself & I, which follows an inventor at three different stages of his life,stars Moynihan alongside John Larroquette and Jaleel White and premieres Monday, Sept. 25 at 9:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
