wait, can we make blerta happen?

Saturday Night Live came back this weekend, and besides a whole new crew of cast members (six of them—yes , count ‘em—and guest host Tina Fey made sure to embarrass all of them with a gold hot pants dance routine) and Arcade Fire’s performance (and post-show late-night concert special), what really got us excited was the airing of the Girls season three trailer. Or, at least, a parody of it.

The sketch featured Noel Wells as Hannah, Cecily Strong as Marnie, Vanessa Bayer as Shoshanna, Kate McKinnon as Jessa, and Tina Fey as Blerta, Hannah’s new Albanian roommate. You can guess who is the most hilarious of the bunch (“I just don’t know how anything is going to turn out!” “It’s OK, you are only 15.” “No I’m not, I’m 24.” “24?! What the fuck is wrong with you?!”), but really, it’s so funny and spot-on that it’s worth watching yourself.

And in case you were wondering, yes Lena Dunham watched the clip—mid-playdate with Mindy Kaling, who documented the whole thing on Twitter—and yes she thought it was “a true honor.”
