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.
