Actress Sydney Sweeney is set to host Saturday Night Live this weekend, but her pre-show promo takes a turn for the comedic in an unexpected way.

The clip, released earlier today, features Sweeney, dressed in a casual denim-on-denim outfit, engrossed in a book titled Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami. As she walks through the halls of the famed Studio 8H, she bumps into cast member Michael Longfellow.

Romantic music swells as the camera focuses on Longfellow, revealing his inner monologue as he attempts to muster the courage to ask Sweeney out.

However, the mood quickly shifts as Sweeney, still focused on her book, simply utters "Excuse me" and continues walking, leaving Longfellow awkwardly standing alone.

The video has gone viral for its unexpected twist, garnering praise for its humour and subversion of the typical meet-cute trope. Fans are particularly enjoying the contrast between Sweeney's nonchalant demeanour and the dramatic music and Longfellow's internal monologue.

This promo clip hints at the comedic potential Sweeney might bring to her hosting duties. Viewers are now eagerly anticipating her full Saturday Night Live episode, which airs live this weekend.
