Aidy Bryant is a national hero and treasure. The Saturday Night Live MVP lived out all of our fantasies with Ryan Gosling—well, she tried to live all of them out by scripting their makeout session in the new Saturday Night Live promos.
"Oh weird, what does this card say? Ryan and Aidy kiss passionately for the remainder of this promo? Ugh. These damn writers, but I guess we gotta do it," she says in the video below.
But Gosling catches on. Yes, we're aware this was scripted, but Aidy Bryant: hero for even trying.
The two go off to bond in "comfortable" or "uncomfortable" silence, then decide to go wail on their pecs and reenact Titanic (but not the scene you'd think).
This is the first time Gosling is hosting the NBC late-night sketch show. Leon Bridges is taking the stage for the first time as musical guest. Following up Gosling's hosting time will be Chris Hemsworth on Saturday, Dec. 12, with musical guest Chance the Rapper. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the holiday show on Saturday, Dec. 19, with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.
Gosling's Saturday Night Live airs this Saturday at 11:30 p.m. on NBC.
