The new season of “Saturday Night Live” is just a few days away, which means that the first in this season’s series of lo-fi, often quite amusing Internet promos is available right now.
Alec Baldwin will host the show for a record-setting 16th time on Saturday (Sept. 24), with Radiohead as the musical guest. Cast member Bill Hader gets sidekick honors with Baldwin in the promo above, about which we have a few thoughts:
Thought 1: Baldwin looks fit. We wonder if the extended off-season for “30 Rock” (thanks to Tina Fey‘s new daughter Penelope) hasn’t been rejuvenating for him.
Thought 2: They still make Trapper Keepers? Thought 2a: That Velcro sound takes us back to fourth grade without fail.
Thought 3: What, Bill Hader, is up with your hair? Are you also working on a movie (perhaps one in which you play Eddie Vedder), or is that all on your own?
“SNL” premieres at 11:30 p.m. ET Saturday.
