Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer rides electric podium while filming 'Saturday Night Live'


Melissa McCarthy is bringing back ol' "Spicey" to Saturday Night Live. The actress is set to host the NBC sketch comedy on May 13, and on Friday, New Yorkers got a sneak peek of her upcoming impression of press secretary Sean Spicer.

A producer at CNN was able to catch a quick video of McCarthy at her Spicer podium in the middle of 58th Street Friday morning. A team of people can be seen around a transformed McCarthy as she moves her electronic podium.

Another CNN producer captured footage of her at the podium cruising down the street next to a white car. 

The videos come just a day after SNL released a promo for McCarthy's upcoming host appearance. The trailer shows McCarthy transforming into Spicer while the song "I Feel Pretty" plays.

Saturday Night Live is live coast-to-coast on May 13 with Melissa McCarthy as host and Haim as the musical guest. You can watch the new episode at 11:30 p.m. Eastern.
