After reports that Sean Spicer was spotted literally hiding in the bushes to avoid reporters on Tuesday evening, it was clear that this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live would likely be pretty amazing.

As it turns out, that level of “amazing” has already been confirmed with a video circulating online of Melissa McCarthy wearing her now-famous Sean Spicer get-up and riding a motorized lectern through busy New York City streets.

McCarthy’s “Spicey” character is one of the most beloved currently on SNL as McCarthy transforms the Press Secretary’s latest gaffes into hilarious parody. Previous versions have featured McCarthy charging the press with her mobile podium, but this will be the first time that the prop has left the faux-press room.

The stunt was captured by many onlookers but appeared to be part of a pre-recorded sketch for the comedy show – one we will be eager to see in its completed form.

In the meantime, the internet has been having a fun time with the video as-is, and even placing cult classic “A Thousand Miles” from musical artist Vanessa Hudgens over the already-hilarious clip.

It’s almost the weekend – live a little.
