So This Is What Goes Down Inside The Saturday Night Live Writer's Room

I am obsessed with this video my friend Kevin found and sent to me of SNL writers goofing around in their offices late last week around 4:30am. It stars Taran Killam, a second-year member of the show's cast, donned in a white fur cropped hoodie thing and getting down to Robyn's "Call Your Girlfriend." (Between Killam's dead-on impressions on the show, his funny portrayal of an evil glee club teach on last week's Community, and knowing that he has a child with funnylady Cobie Smulders from How I Met Your Mother, my love for this man keeps growing and growing.) The clip also includes cameos from cast members Vanessa Bayer, Abby Elliott, and Bobby Moynihan as well as two writers (former CollegeHumor gal Sarah Schneider and Zach Kanin, who is impressively unfazed by the antics surrounding him). That that, my friends, is how your SNL sausage gets made.

Not quite related (though it is an SNL - sort of - video obsession of mine), if you are interested, have a few minutes to kill, and access, head over to Youtube and type in 'SNL Korea'. Korean tv now broadcasts a licensed (I assume) version of SNL, same music, intro, Digital Shorts, Weekend Update set, etc.
