Ever wondered how an episode of SNL comes together? This time-lapse video, posted on the show’s YouTube channel, shows the entire taping process, condensed into just two and a half minutes. It’s from this past weekend’s episode, which featured Anna Kendrick as the host and Pharrell as the musical guest.

You can see everything: the producers and camera guys who all seem to be bald (so, real-life Pete Hornbergers), the cue cards, the set changes, the Weekend Update desk, etc. The only thing missing is Stefon. (Rest in peace.)
