Elton John makes his first “Saturday Night Live” appearance since 1982 (say what?) on the April 2 episode, when he’ll serve as both the host and the musical guest.

And in addition to the untimely plugs for “Gnomeo & Juliet” he no doubt has in store, the first promo promises that we can expect things to get very, very British.

When Jason Sudeikis steals a pair of Elton’s signature shades — after calling him a “bitch,” mind you — a Benny Hill-esque chase ensues, complete with frantic music. 

There’s only one problem. What bootlegged rip-off of the Benny Hill theme is this? Last time we checked, it wasn’t terribly difficult to secure 15 seconds worth of “Yakety Sax.”
