Just in time for the Mother's Day celebration, the 'Bridesmaids' star parodies 1-800-Flowers commercial during her hosting gig in a May 11 episode of 'SNL'.

A year after she bid farewell to the show, comedienne returned to the "" set on May 11 to host that week's episode and to do what she does best on the show, pulling off funny spoofs and sketches with the cast. With just a day to go before Mothers' Day, the "SNL" alum couldn't let her guest appearance end without doing a 1-800-Flowers commercial spoof.

The fake flowers delivery phone-in service commercial invited viewers to give Mom "the gift that's as wonderful as she is" but the rest of spoof only showed how Wiig's mom, played by , drove her crazy. The visibly annoyed daughter did her deadpan expressions as McKinnon still managed to nag her even after receiving a bouquet from Wiig.

The spoof was made up of contradictions, with Wiig boasting how much she loved "everything about" her mom even while she was getting irritated with McKinnon for asking a waiter if there were nuts in eggs benedict, despite not being allergic at all. Wiig also spoke about how "open and honest" mom and daughter were to each other then getting stunned with McKinnon's porn-viewing revelations.

Other sketches that night were the hilarious "Acupuncture" with , , Aidy Bryant and McKinnon, the "" spoof entitled "New Disney Show", and a couple of tried and tested sketches "Lawrence Welk" and "Target Lady".
