Melissa McCarthy is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, and expectations are higher than ever after her recurring appearances as Press Secretary Sean Spicer became one of the season’s unexpected highlights. And if anyone worried that McCarthy wouldn’t go full Spicey after her first promo went online, this should put it to rest.
Early Friday morning, McCarthy-as-Spicer was spotted on a podium zooming down the streets of New York alongside traffic, as one does.
Some placed her on 58th Street, while others who witnessed it (including a number of CNN employees) reported that McCarthy was outside of CNN’s New York headquarters. There’s a film crew on hand, and it’s hard to tell what exactly she’s saying besides yelling at people to get out of the way.

McCarthy, who’s in New York this week for SNL, is most likely filming a pre-taped sketch as Spicer for her episode. As for what else it’ll entail besides a morning cruise through Midtown traffic, we’ll have to tune into SNL on Saturday to find out.
