Kyle Mooney has worked as a cast member on Saturday Night Live for six seasons now, but he’s not getting on air nearly as much as he used to.

Which makes his short video about a new cast member struggling to make it on air that much more meta, knowing the sketch itself didn’t air.

Mooney plays himself as well as the new cast member, Adam Zekeman (although I had to rub my eyes to make sure I wasn’t seeing my former roommate, Dan Hirshon!). Anyhow. You know what to do. Roll the clip.
