It was one of the highlights of Saturday Night Live's 40th Anniversary Special, but the "Wayne's World" sketch, featuring Mike Myers and Dana Carvey, almost didn't happen.

"I didn't know I was invited. I never received a formal invitation," Myers told David Letterman on The Late Show on Friday.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's hosting stint on Saturday Night Live this weekend was proof that the actor and wrestler's comic timing is as impressive as his physique – and, beyond that, he's game for just about anything.

Case in point: The above sketch, which saw him starring as the titular forest animal in a live-action reboot of Disney's Bambi.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will host Saturday Night Live for the fourth time this week, and the only person more enthusiastic about that prospect than, well, everyone, might be The Rock himself.

If you thought Saturday Night Live's 40th anniversary special had everyone laughing, Will Ferrell says think again.

"I wanted to watch the monologue … with Steve Martin," Ferrell said Tuesday night on the Late Show with David Letterman, where he showed up dressed like a leprechaun for St. Patrick's Day. "I look up, and there's [Fox News host] Bill O'Reilly."

"Everyone's just clapping, and Bill O'Reilly's like this," Ferrell said, mimicking O'Reilly with a hand under his chin looking stone-faced and unamused. "I don't know if he got a wrong seating assignment or something … but just a real sourpuss."

Here is a sentence that is only possible after Chris Hemsworth hosted Saturday Night Live last night: He makes a terrible perfume salesman.

That's kind of the point: The movie star, and PEOPLE's reigning Sexiest Man Alive, starred as partially clothed "Don Juan de Dark Hole" alongside Vanessa Bayer and Cecily Strong, reprising their "not porn stars any more" Brecky and a lady who we weren't supposed to know is still alive.

The trio were hawking Dolce & Gabbana fragrances, although not one of them could pronounce the Italian brand's name, which instead came out as "Dullky & Gabbaba," "Douche & Go bye bye" and so on.

"If a jacked Australian with a perfect face can make it, anyone can."

That's the lesson from Chris Hemsworth's fake American Express commercial from his episode of Saturday Night Live.

The spoof, like all of American Express's real celebrity spots, is about the daily life of the star in question. (Tina Fey is so zany! etc.) And Chris Hemsworth's constant state is perfection, with the sunlight always hitting his hair and eyes just so. It's no surprise, then, that his spoof ad would focus on his seemingly amazing life.

Chris Hemsworth hosted Saturday Night Live with a little help from his brothers, who all popped up in his opening monologue. Liam and Luke, who you probably already know, both made an appearance, as did Callum – a surprise fourth Hemsworth brother (played by Kenan Thompson) who actually hails from a northern Australian territory called "Atlanta."

But don't worry: Callum may look and sound a little different, but he's a Hemsworth at heart. Like his brothers, he's an actor, starring in a line of instructional videos about dealing with snakes in the workplace. He has a catch phrase and is really very Australian – listen to the way he says "wallaby."
