YOU WANT YOUR MTV, AND PARAMOUNT+ HAS IT

Chris Pratt Helps Kate McKinnon With Her Pickles In This SNL Promo

The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star makes his 'Saturday Night Live' debut.

"Saturday Night Live" will kick off its 40th season this weekend, with Chris Pratt in the hosting hot seat and Ariana Grande as musical guest -- which means that today, the requisite series of silly promo spots are available for your viewing pleasure.

There's a joke or five in here about Pratt's rock-hard Starlord abs, because of course there is, but the funniest bit comes when SNL cast member Kate McKinnon asks him to open her jar of pickles seven times in a row. Which, despite what you might think, is an accurate description of events and not a euphemism for anything.

SNL returns with host Chris Pratt and musical guest Ariana Grande on Saturday September 27.
