SNL alumni Fred Armisen and Bill Hader spoof famous documentaries with their IFC comedy series Documentary Now. In one such episode, the duo parodied Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense. With assistance from fellow SNL‘er Maya Rudolph, they formed a fake band called Test Pattern, released a fake album called Final Transmission, and even performed live on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Armisen, Hader, and Rudolph kept the bit going as this weekend’s Festival Supreme, taking the stage to perform a full set as Test Pattern. Watch fan-shot footage below.
