Kristen Wiig stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers in the midst of Ghostbusters hype, and ended up mostly discussing matters that have already been discussed — by other people. Meyers asked Kristen Wiig to talk a little bit about her voiceover work, and she began to describe her side-career as a dubbing artist — doing the voiceovers for the releases of television shows in other countries.
Late Night, she claims, is one such program. As an example, Seth plays a clip — and she begins dubbing it… in English. The whole sketch escalates in absurdity, with Meyers playing an interview between him and Helen Mirren; Fred Armisen chimes in to dub over Mirren’s speech. Wiig finally acknowledges that this is in English — but says they have toyed around with other languages, for Australian television, for example; they then proceed to dub an interview with Shaquille O’Neal into “Australian.”
