While nothing sounds like more fun than hanging out with Ryan Gosling, Cecily Strong, Kate McKinnon, and 40 aliens on a UFO, McKinnon didn’t have the best time during her encounter with extraterrestrial life. And it had the SNL cast and host Gosling in a fit of laughter.

Last night’s “Close Encounter” sketch had the trio being interviewed by the NSA about their abduction. And when McKinnon’s character shares her memory of having her boobs checked out by some aliens less friendly than E.T., that’s when Gosling just couldn’t hold it together any longer.
