SNL web-only sketch: Vanessa Bayer’s choreography for Beyonce’s “Partition”

This wasn’t so much a sketch from last weekend’s Saturday Night Live, insomuch as it’s a re-enactment of an actual backstage encounter cast member Vanessa Bayer had with her colleagues and host Lena Dunham.

So let’s set this clip up. Bayer learned a new dance move for Beyonce’s song, “Partition,” during a gym workout and wanted to show it off to Dunham, while she was sitting with Kate McKinnon and Aidy Bryant. It’s missing something. Can you figure out what that is? It’s not hugs, as you can see, it’s got hugs! And-a 5, 6, 7, 8!
