Bobby Moynihan's first 'SNL' promos feature Adam Levine
Bobby Moynihan's first "Saturday Night Live" promos hit Facebook this afternoon, and they're playfully tweaking this week's host, Adam Levine of Maroon 5 and "The Voice."
Moynihan fully commits to the mini-sketches that have him literally roping Levine into bits about "The Voice" (the NBC reality show for which Levine is a mentor) and its famous rotating chairs.
Four points worth noting:
1. Revel in Moynihan's pitch-perfect lampooning of divas who hold an ear and gesticulate while singing, all while Levine sits in a low-budget facsimile of the rotating chair. If you listen carefully at the 50-second mark, it sounds like Levine bursts out with a laugh, right as the segment cuts off.
2. I don't think I want to see Sober Uncle — the more serious version of Moynihan's recurring Weekend Update character, Drunk Uncle — but the mere mention of it allows for a great Moynihan freeze-frame for the "The More You Know" payoff.
3. Fair to say Moynihan's done a remarkable job on "SNL" all these years, considering he doesn't "understand how cameras work."
4. "Wheeeeeeee!" is pretty much the only way to end this video.
