Editor's Pick
In case you missed it, immediately following SNL's 39th season premiere, hosted by Tina Fey, Arcade Fire got a special 30-minute slot to promote its new album, Reflektor. Directed by Roman Coppola, the band performed "Here Comes the Night Time," "We Exist," and "Normal People," in what read like an extended music video, set in a dazlling '80s-inspired set. Punctuating each act were fictional commercial interludes and comedic vignettes, including one particularly funny moment featuring Bill Hader and a vomiting Zach Galifianakis, who called in from in outer space. Other cameos include James Franco, puling a weak Spicoli impersonation, Bono, Ben Stiller, Aziz Ansari and an Espanol hablando Michael Cera.
