Susan Sarandon's Dog Makes a Cameo on SNL

Posted on

Penny is one step closer to realizing her Oscar dreams.

Susan Sarandon’s Pomeranian-Maltese mix showed up briefly during an SNL digital short during the show’s season finale on Saturday. In the video for the song “3-Way (The Golden Rule),” Penny rubbed shoulders with Justin Timberlake, Andy Samberg and Patricia Clarkson.

Sarandon reprised her role from 2009’s hit song “Motherlover,” in which she played Samberg’s mother and Timberlake’s lover. In the opening for “3-Way,” Sarandon appears on the stoop outside a New York City brownstone in a fuchsia negligee.

With Penny in her arms, Sarandon gives Justin Timberlake a kiss on the cheek and an affectionate pat on the back. Penny sits on her perch, her long hair looking well-coiffed in the breeze, apparently oblivious to all the people around her.

“Your mom says hi,” sings Timberlake and Samberg in unison. “Jinx!”
