If you can't beat 'em, join 'em--right, Kate McKinnon?

In a nod to "Girls," "Saturday Night Live's" Kate McKinnon doffs her top in a promo for Lena Dunham's March 8 hosting gig. "Lena, I thought we said on the phone that we would both wear the same outfit," she says. Dunham apologizes, tells McKinnon, "At the last minute I changed my mind. I should have called."

"Yeah, you should have, because this is all I brought today," McKinnon replies, gesturing to her bare chest. "I have tons of errands to run after this. I have a speaking engagement at a high school."

"So you might want to stop at the shirt store on the way?" Dunham suggests.

"Oh yeah?" McKinnon says sarcastically. "Ya think?"

In another bit, the comedienne pitches a new character: "Lena, we are so excited that you're here. I love Girls so much. I would love to be on the show one day. I don't need to have a big part. I could just be a character who moves in with Hannah and just follows her around and does everything with her."

"Okay, well that actually sounds like it would be a very big part," Dunham tells McKinnon.

The "SNL" star then asks, "What if I was just a person who killed Hannah and then lived as her?"

Terrified, Dunham tells the crew, "Okay, I want this promo to end now."

Watch the video to see Dunham call McKinnon a "slut-witch" and to see "two young feminists" dance!

(E! and "Saturday Night Live" are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
