Sadly, the season 5 finale of Portlandia (March 12) is drawing closer by the day. But take solace: Today, Billboard is exclusively premiering a clip from this season’s penultimate episode featuring music legend Paul Simon.
As with the best Portlandia sketches, this one is absurd and believable at the same time: Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein hijack a fan Q&A with Paul Simon to ask a lengthy, pointless question that’s more about them than him. This scene is for every time in life you’ve witnessed a question from the audience that doesn’t actually include a question.

PS: Look closely — the fictional memoir Simon is promoting in this scene is titled, You Can Call Me Paul. A+
