The 'Saturday Night Live' "Weekend Update" star Michael Che pulled a prank at his co-writer Colin Jost's intimate birthday dinner party with Scarlett Johansson, by sending a clown. Che posted a picture on his Instagram stories, where Jost is seen wearing a balloon headgear, saying, "I sent a party clown to Colin[‘]s very intimate birthday dinner." Jost, who turned 36 on Friday, sent out a picture of him and Johansson- who looks as amused as the trick.

According to Fox News, the two stars have been anchoring the "Weekend Update" for almost four years, as they were named co-head writers of 'Saturday Night Live' in December. NBC soon announced that the duo would be hosting the 70th Prime Time Emmy Awards, which will be held in Los Angeles on September 17.

NBC Entertainment chairman, Robert Greenblatt, told Entertainment Tonight in April, "NBC is thrilled to be the home of this year’s Emmy Awards and with Colin and Michael in the driver’s seat as hosts, along with surprise appearances by other cast members of Saturday Night Live...I think we are in for one of the funniest awards shows in a long time."

The two are also reportedly the first duo to host the iconic award show since 1999 when Jenna Elfman and David Hyde Pierce had co-hosted the show. 

Huffington Post noted that Johansson and Jost (ScarJost) first got together in May 2017, when they were spotted kissing at the after-party of the show's season finale. Within months their relationship was public after they attended the American Museum of Natural History Gala in New York. They were seen on several occasions following that, such as at the premiere of 'Avengers: Infinity War' and then at the Met Gala. According to the report, Jost’s fellow “SNL” comedian Pete Davidson also finds his name in the headlines for his whirlwind romance with singer Ariana Grande. 

Recently, the whole paparazzi probably got on the nerves of ScarJost when a fan tried to click their picture, while the couple was at Indian Wells Tavern in Amagansett "noshing on wings and tacos." According to a report on PageSix, Johansson flipped a middle finger to the fan, and the article quotes a source saying, "The ever-gracious Scarlett Johansson with Colin Jost."
