ScarJo plays drunk on SNL

Scarlett Johansson has pretended to get drunk in a promo for an upcoming TV show.

The 30-year-old actress is hosting US sketch show Saturday Night Live this weekend and has appeared in a trailer for it alongside series regular Kenan Thompson.

The pair attempt to introduce the upcoming episode several times, with things going amiss during each take. In one, Kenan praises Scarlett for her sexy tone, stating that she could make anything sound attractive.

"Really?" she queries. "What if I say 'testicle pickles'? Does that sound good?"

"Ohh baby testicle pickles never sounded so good," Kenan swoons, before the scene is cut and the pair start again.

In another, the twosome start discussing what it's like to be parents. Both are relatively new to the game, with Scarlett and her husband Romain Dauriac welcoming their daughter Rose in September last year, while Kenan is dad to Georgia, who was born last June.

"We're the same people, we can still party," Kenan insisted.

"Absolutely. It's not like I'm going to let having a baby change who I am," Scarlett replied, taking a glass of wine handed to her by the comedian. "Cheers to that, yes damn right."

The scene then cuts to a slumped Kenan who appears to have lost consciousness after having one too many, while an inebriated Scarlett gushes about being a mum.

"[She] is so beautiful. She's like this whole new person," she slurs.

In other scenes, Kenan is seen wearing an eye patch, in what Scarlett takes to be a nod to the character Nick Fury in Scarlett's new movie Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, it turns out Kenan just got popcorn in his eye while watching Furious 7 so has to protect it.
