The formula for Billy Eichner's hit series Billy on the Street is a simple one:
Billy hits the streets of New York with a famous celebrity demanding random passersby answer trivia for tiny rewards.
In his latest video, however, Billy mixed up the formula a bit by having SNL star Kate McKinnon impersonate Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon.
The most embarassing part of the video is how many people failed to spot the difference.

Fans online, however, noticed something was off right away.

There's nothing more painful than watching people fail to recognize the one and only Kate McKinnon!

Of course, who could blame them when Kate is such a renowned impressionist?
@billyeichner Kate McKinnon is a genius! She got Reese's body language and her mannerisms down to a tee.— 𝔻𝕒𝕧𝕚𝕕 ℝ𝕚𝕔𝕙𝕒𝕣𝕕 ℙ 🏳️🌈 (@𝔻𝕒𝕧𝕚𝕕 ℝ𝕚𝕔𝕙𝕒𝕣𝕕 ℙ 🏳️🌈)1559150203.0
