This morning NBC’s TODAY show had SNL star Kate McKinnon join host Hoda Kotb for a chat, in promotion of her new film The Spy Who Dumped Me. And… look. This is a seven-minute segment. It’s not like they’re gonna go to any deep or dark places in seven minutes on a morning news show. But believe me when I tell you that these seven minutes are some of the weirdest shit you’ll see today.
It opens with Hoda having no goddamn clue that the interview is actually starting. The pair slowly approach each other like it’s a comedy bit, until Hoda finally realizes that they aren’t filming a bumper for the segment — they’re supposed to be filming the segment itself. So she sits down and launches into the interview while someone fetches her notes. And what follows is basically a lot of giggling while McKinnon makes weird faces.
And I’m not complaining! It’s great! Because when you get McKinnon alone for seven minutes, the best thing to do is to just let her do her thing. If you’re wondering what face makes McKinnon laugh, or what face her cat makes, or what expression she used to gross out her Spy co-star Mila Kunis during filming, watch! But be forewarned: that’s basically all you’re gonna learn.
