Kristen Wiig Touts 'SNL' Return With Help From Fred Armisen (Video)

The Wrap

Kristen Wiig returns to Studio 8H as host of "Saturday Night Live" this Saturday with musical guest Vampire Weekend. And possibly Olivia Newton-John. The joke will make sense to you in about two minutes.

As is the promotional routine at "SNL," Wiig filmed a series of short, funny videos with a cast member. In this case, she teamed up with longtime friend and colleague, the great Fred Armisen.

Spoiler alert: This video is very, very funny. It includes lost characters, dramatic moments, sexual tension, dance moves and, of course, Armisen slapping Wiig across the face.

Watch Wiig hosting "SNL" Saturday at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
