Yes, that's right — Spicey is BACK.

When @melissamccarthy films an SNL skit in front of your office.

Dressed up as the White House press secretary, McCarthy rode through rush hour traffic, down 58th Street and outside the CNN building.

Take two. Melissa McCarthy sliding through the streets of New York in full #SNL Sean Spicer character

Of course, a few jokes just had to be made.

There is a one-in-ten chance this is actually @PressSec Sean Spicer, fleeing. https://t.co/zwGmtfFif8

Have to imagine Spicey will end up back in the shrubbery tomorrow night. https://t.co/ixCJjGgRD2

that would be "amidst Midtown traffic" https://t.co/06sWRdfxN7

The sighting comes two days after SNL released a teaser for this weekend's show featuring McCarthy dancing around the studio and lip-syncing "I Feel Pretty" as she got made over as Spicer.
