SNL Does Robyn at 4:30 in the Morning

Brittani’s Team Pick

As you may or may not know, Robyn’sCall Your Girlfriend” video took dancing alone in a warehouse to levels Childish Gambino never dreamed of. If you weren’t already jealous of Taran Killam for dating Cobie Smulders, you have reason to be now. Killam nails Robyn’s choreography in what is noticeably not a warehouse, surrounded by his peers, and dressed in what can only be described as some sort of cotton candy animal that was shot and made into a fur by Katniss Everdeen. For some reason I thought the entire world was already aware of this video but yesterday Alice told me she’s never seen it. So, without further ado…

    • Yea, I was about to say the same thing. Taren’s choreography is really surprisingly close to what is happening in the actual video. Also, him rolling on the floor kills me every time.

  1. Yes, the side by side is amazing! He does an amazing job.

    His girlfriend also plays a Robin on TV by the way (in How I Met Your Mother). They both play Robin! Mind = blown, right?

  2. I enjoyed how the guy on the computer kept working, despite the fact that a furry cotton candy man was gyrating right behind him. No fucks to give.

  3. best way to wake up. maybe I will start every morning with a Robyn dance session until I have it memorized.

  4. I love this Robyn video, love this guy “reenacting” (quotes? no quotes?) it, and f-ing love Robyn. Hilarious way to start the day!

  5. UMMM I MIGHT HAVE watched this video like 6 times now. In a period of two hours. Possibly when AS was down and I had nothing better to do with my time, nothing better at all.

  6. ” and dressed in what can only be described as some sort of cotton candy animal that was shot and made into a fur by Katniss Everdeen.”

    YES YES YES Hunger Games
