Tina Fey and the new cast of Saturday Night Live dares to ask the question: What if Hannah from Girls had a roommate from Albania?
SNL cast member Noel Wells impersonates Lena Dunham's quirky character in the spoof, and starts out the promo strong by saying, "Honestly, I feel like I'm living the life I was meant to be living, I just wish it was the life that I wanted to be living."
Fey plays an old Albanian woman named Blerta that moves in with Hannah, and her interaction with the Brooklyn hipsters is quite hilarious.
Dunham seemed quite thrilled to have her HBO show spoofed by SNL, tweeting:

Very excited about the current lineup of SNL ladies. They are funny like whoa.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) September 29, 2013
The Mindy Project's Mindy Kaling also enjoyed the faux Girls promo, and even posted a pic of Dunham watching SNL this weekend. She writes:
Girls, which was nominated for five Emmy Awards, returns to HBO for its season 3 debut in 2014.
Though Wells is new to SNL, she's been perfecting her impression of Dunham for some time. Check out another instance, below:
