What Goes On in the Writers' Room at Saturday Night Live

Posted on December 13, 2011

Ever wondered what goes on in the writers' room at Saturday Night Live? Wonder no more. This is a behind the scenes look on SNL's writing night. The writers posed the video with this caption: "Behind the scenes on SNL's writing night. 4:30am. Why not make a music video? We love Robyn!"

Cast member Taran Killam decides to recreate the video for Robyn singing "Call Your Girlfriend." He dons a white faux fur jacket/shirt and lets fly with some Robyn-esque choreography. He gets special effects help from Vanessa Bayer, Abby Elliott, and Bobby Moynihan and two of the show's writers. We love how the writer at the computer pays absolutely no attention to Taran's antics. He is going to get that script written...or else. Take a look:
