The windows of Barneys' Madison Avenue flagship will commemorate the 35th season of Saturday Night Live with depictions of the show's most memorable skits for the holidays.
OK, we love. Barneys Creative Director discussed the "Have a Witty Holiday" campaign the other day, which will stroll down memory lane with mannequins reliving such classics as the Coneheads; John Belushi as a killer bee; Steve Martin as King Tut; Martin and Dan Akroyd as Two Wild and Crazy Guys; Molly Shannon’s Mary Katherine Gallagher; Gilda Radner’s Roseanne Roseannadanna; Tina Fey dressed as Sarah Palin carrying a crossbow, and Amy Poehler behind the “Weekend Update” anchor desk. Also, look out for 35 years (35 years?!) of catch phrases scrawled and scripts strewn throughout.
While we'd normally shun the herds of midtown during the holiday season, this is a perfect New York storm that we definitely will not miss.
