Taran Killam Of 'SNL' Dances To Robyn's 'Call Your Girlfriend' In Writers Room (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

It's easy to see how Taran Killam and his crew of sleep-deprived "Saturday Night Live" scribes could have gotten a little worked up at 4:30 a.m. last Wednesday morning. The writers were (hopefully) in the home stretch of writing for that week: During a typical week at the show, sketches get pitched on Monday, written on Tuesday and then polished up for as long as it takes to get them ready for cast read-throughs on Wednesday.

All that had to be accomplished while the jokesmiths were preparing, mentally and spiritually, for something far more stressful: Coming face to face with the awesomeness of Robyn, the dance-pop vixen who was last week's musical guest.

Luckily, though, Killam found a way to diffuse the tension: Recreating Robyn's video for her song "Call Your Girlfriend."
