The Weeknd Is Accused of Being an Imposter in ‘SNL’ Promo

The Weeknd is coming to “SNL.” Or is he?

“Saturday Night Live” is drumming up enthusiasm for its season premiere with a new promo featuring host Margot Robbie and cast member Kenan Thompson.

But there’s a problem. Margot and Kenan just can’t believe that the guy standing next to them is The Weeknd. Why? Well, his trademark locks are gone.

“Who the hell is this guy?” asks Thompson. “This dude is an imposter!”

All jokes aside, The Weeknd’s return to “SNL” is highly anticipated. He’s slated to perform the Daft Punk-assisted “Starboy” and his new solo cut “False Alarm” on the show. Both cuts are off Starboy, which is set to arrive Nov. 25.

Get ready for “SNL’s” new season with the hilarious promo below.
