Donald Glover hates dominoes but loves weird jumping techniques. That’s the bizarre premise of Saturday Night Live‘s hilarious promo clip for the actor-rapper’s upcoming episode as dual host/musical guest.
The video opens with Beck Bennett excitedly showing off a grandiose domino arrangement to fellow cast member Chris Redd. “I’m really excited that Donald Glover is hosting,” Bennett says, “so I stayed up all night building these dominoes for him.” But the surprise topples over after Redd demonstrates a “new cool jump” and shakes the ground.
Glover strolls in, irritated that Bennett even attempted such a lame gift. “Hey Beck, what’s that cool thing you wanted to show me?” he asks. “Are those dominoes? I hate dominoes. You should’ve told me they were dominoes.” But he is impressed with a different surprise: Redd’s odd leaping style.
Glover, who co-stars in the upcoming Star Wars spinoff Solo, will perform under his musical moniker Childish Gambino during Saturday’s SNL.
