Chris Rock’s Saturday Night Live promos are all about Prince

Chris Rock hasn’t hosted Saturday Night Live in about 18 years, but it seems like he’s more excited about this week’s musical guest—Prince, duh—than he is about returning himself. The comedian’s new SNL promos are mainly about the Purple One, though Prince never actually shows up to make jokes even look coy. Instead, Bobby Moynihan pops up as a substitute “Prince,” but even he knows he’s not that funky. (Props for a solid “Erotic City” reference, though.)
