Awkward interviewer botches interview with Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader

Do your homework! Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader get a good laugh with KWGN Denver reporter Chris Parente as he asks the SNL funnies questions about their Sundance film festival debut, “The Skeleton Twins.”

Parente has obviously not seen the film, and tries to cover up several bad questions with equally bad jokes that leave Wiig and Hader laughing hysterically.

“Doesn’t this film have muppets in it? Do you play a bridesmaid in this one?”

The duo handled the interview like champs, but it serves as a great reminder for any reporter or critic to please, if you haven’t seen the film you are about to talk about AT LEAST do some research beforehand! The movie went viral on YouTube, so all is not lost. In fact, that interview has probably given the movie even more press had all gone smoothly. Well played, Wiig and Hader. Well played.
