Kate McKinnon, Justin Bieber, SNL


If you liked Justin Bieber's Calvin Klein underwear ad, you're going to love this. 

Well, actually, maybe won't. But if you thought the Biebs' Calvin Klein underwear ad was just a little too Bieber-y for your taste, then you're going to love this.

As a nice little mid-week treat, the team at Saturday Night Live decided to release the blooper real from the show's spoof of that now-infamous commercial. It features Cecily Strong in the role of Lara Stone and Kate McKinnon reprising her crowd favorite impersonation of Justin Bieber—and the soon-to-be Ghostbusters star is spot on per usual. As it's probably burned into your brain for all eternity, you'll remember that the original ad featured Stone rolling about (in her Calvins, of course!) while Bieber enthusiastically banged on a drum set and drawled "My Calvins." Of course, since this is an underwear ad, there was also a fair amount of shirtless groping.

The commercial seen in the just-released reel, however, is nothing like that. It's so much better. There's really no way to describe it other than magical.

In fact it's pretty fair to say that Kate's version of Justin is the best kind of Justin. The strut, the lip licking, the soulful stare, the hair caress...she's got it all on lock. Oh, and the images of Kate-as-Justin riding a Razor scooter and trying to pants Cecily-as-Lara will get us through any dark times to come.

So thank you for this gift, SNL, and we're not just talking about Kate's fake Bieber bulge.
