During John’s opening monologue, a bunch of cast members posing as guests stood up in the crowd to interrupt the him to ask questions about his popular sitcom, The Office.
Many wanted to know what his character Jim’s onscreen love, Pam (played by Jenna Fischer), was up to and where she is now.
John kept trying to tell them that Pam’s a fictional character and doesn’t exist in the real world, which is why she’s not there with him on the SNL stage.
Still, the questions continued, and when Pete walked out on stage to stand next to the host, Kenan Thompson, who was portraying an audience member, asked: “Is that Pam?”

Confused by the ask, the Jack Ryan actor responded: “No, this is Pete Davidson.”
Wanting to please the crowd, Pete told him: “I think they really need for someone to be Pam.”
He added: “I think we gotta give them what they want Jim. Jim, you gotta kiss Pam.”

The excited crowd started chanting, “Kiss Pam! Kiss Pam! Kiss Pam!”
John gave the camera his signature smirk before turning to Pete and grabbing his head with both hands, bring his lips closer.
Pete grabbed onto John’s shoulders and pulled him in closer, as well, and the two shared a steamy kiss as the audience cheered.
