Taran Killam and ‘SNL’ cohorts do late night recreation of Robyn’s ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ (Video)

Taran Killam and some of his “Saturday Night Live” cohorts took a break from their weekly all night writing session Wednesday at 4:30 a.m. to recreate musical guest Robyn’s video for “Call Your Girlfriend.” The sleep deprived antics have, thankfully, been uploaded to YouTube.

Despite looking like he’s about to collapse from lack of shut eye, Killam gives a pretty impressive performance, even recreating the backward somersault from the Swedish pop singer’s video. Vanessa Bayer, Bobby Moynihan, Abby Eliott and writer Sarah Schneider provide some background lighting effects. Writer Zach Kanin attempts to keep working.

Below, for your viewing pleasure, is Killam’s re-creation, Robyn’s original video and her performance of the song on “SNL.”
