Published Dec 17, 2012Musically speaking, it was a pretty good weekend for sketch comedy shows. Following Paul McCartney's collaboration with the surviving members of Nirvana on Saturday Night Live, Jack White made a guest appearance on Portlandia.
The brainchild of SNL cast member Fred Armisen and Sleater-Kinney's Carrie Brownstein, Portlandia has seen cameos from the likes of Colin Meloy, St. Vincent and Johnny Marr, but this week's Christmas special added Jack White to that list.
Armisen plays a crazed Brian Wilson admirer with a basement studio equipped to record the next Pet Sounds, but no one to record in it — until Jack White shows up! It's a Christmas miracle! White just kind of stands there in the falling snow, but you can check out the clip below.
Portlandia returns to IFC for its third season on January 4.
