Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band will be the musical guest on tomorrow’s episode of Saturday Night Live and were featured in two funny ads for the show.

Embedded below are two 15-second spots featuring host Timothée Chalamet and cast member Cecily Strong. The first spot features The Boss saying the entire band is now part of the cast with Steven Van Zandt getting in a great one-liner. The second spot features Chalamet and Strong reenacting a scene from the 2017 film Call Me By Your Namewhich starred Chalamet, and then Springsteen closes the spot with a funny one-liner.

The E Street Band won’t be on SNL in its entirety, though. Springsteen shared via Twitter, “We’ll be missing our great bass player Garry Tallent and our compatriot Soozie Tyrell on Saturday night due to COVID restrictions and concerns. Garry and his family are fine as is Soozie, but we thank Jack Daley of the Disciples of Soul for sitting in.”
