“I’m so honored to be here. Growing up, me and my family would watch SNL every week,” he said during the monologue. “My sisters and I would reenact some of the sketches and my mom would videotape them.”

Thanks to Teller’s mom, footage of the home video was played including the memorable ending “who’s that spartan in my teepee?”

“How crazy is that? My parents used to watch me doing skits in my living room and now they’re here watching me host Saturday Night Live,” the first-time host added.

Teller’s monologue came after he appeared as Peyton Manning in the cold open, the first time that a first-time host appeared in the cold open since Chris Pratt in 2014, according to the Saturday Night Network. He was joined by his Top Gun: Maverick co-star Jon Hamm and snowboarder Shaun White.
