>>> so daniel craig hosted "snl" over the weekend, big star , james bond , but he was overshadowed by a rare late night appearance by big bird .
>> big bird , how did you find out that your name had been mentioned in the debate?
>> oh, i got a million tweets.
>> oh, okay. so you're on twitter?
>> no, i'm a bird. tweeting is how we talk.
>> big bird , has being mentioned in the debate mentioned you at all?
>> oh, it has. i feel like i'm famous now. i was walking down the street the other day and i felt that everybody recognized me.
>> yeah. it's so weird to think that just a few days ago i could just blend in like every other perfectly normal 8 foot tall talking bird .
>> we have to say savannah guthrie was hanging around studio 8h around "saturday night live" and met big bird .
>> my mom is in town. brought her to the dress rehearsal for "snl" and donna who works here took us backstage and i met big bird . i have to tell you something came over me when i saw big bird on stage. i became 5 again. i went like this to my mom, and i went, mom, big bird . i don't know what happened, and i met him and told him that. i said i grew up with you and it's really neat. the same person has been doing it since 1969 .
>> '69, yeah.
>> so he's all of our big birds.
>> is it true that you were actually taller than 8 foot tall big bird ?
>> oh, no, you didn't, miss morales.
>> yes, i have the picture to prove it, but we can't show it to you, but it's true.
