VIDEO: Lena Dunham Takes Control in SNL Promo

[star_embed service=youtube src=”//″ width=”560″ height=”315″]

This weekend, Lena Dunham will host Saturday Night Live for the first time. On Tuesday, her set of promos for the show, which feature Kate McKinnon, were released.

In one of the clips, the SNL star asks the 27-year-old if she’s prepared to relinquish some control on Saturday, despite usually writing and directing most episodes of her HBO show. Although the Girls star replies that she’s ready to sit back and learn, she can’t seem to help herself from giving instructions to the cameramen and advice to Kate.

We also see a little mishap, in which Kate shows up to the shoot topless, assuming Lena would stick to their pact to wear the same outfit. “At the last minute, I changed my mind,” the Emmy winner shrugs.

Check out all of the funny clips in the video!
