Kristen Wiig is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, and for the episode's official promo, the entire SNL cast and crew got together to raise the bar on the newest viral craze, the Mannequin Challenge.

As a camera tracks around Studio 8H in what is supposed to be the middle of a live episode, we get to see most of the show's biggest stars, many of whom are decked out as some of their most popular characters.

From Bobby Moynihan and Mikey Day as the dancing skeletons from Tom Hanks' beloved David S. Pumpkins sketch to Kate McKinnon as the gruff-talking alien abductee, this short challenge is filled with Easter eggs to warm any SNL fan's heart.

Moving through the crowded studio -- past Aidy Bryant mid-gum pop and Pete Davidson almost falling back in a chair – the camera finally arrives in front of Wiig, flanked by the cast, who breaks the illusion to point at the on-screen text announcing her as the upcoming host.
