SNL's awesome Wes Anderson horror flick spoof

Despite the fact that The Royal Tenenbaums was released in 2001, I think it took a few more films until a mainstream audience would recognize the Wes Anderson look, plus it's awesome, so I'm not going to rag on SNL for referencing a twelve year old movie.  Bottom line, this thing is brilliant:

The actor playing Owen Wilson really nailed his voice, plus props to whoever found the dead-on wig.  Not to mention everyone else involved for hitting this out of the park, because I'm convinced that if Anderson did decide to do a horror film, it would look and sound a lot like this, especially the choice of songs.

H/T to TV Tattle.

Updated 11/8/13: Just found this "How We Did It Article" by SNL staffer Alex Buono.  Thanks again, TV Tattle!  I didn't even realize "The actor playing Owen Wilson" was actually Edward Norton.  I didn't recognize him at all.
