Alec Baldwin can't keep his hands off his...well, his Nintendo Wii remote, it seems. In his 14th appearance hosting Saturday Night Live (just one appearance less than Steve Martin, who holds the all time record) Baldwin rang in Valentine's Day by sending up Richard Burton and Vincent Price, playing the "fourth" Jonas Brother, and chatting about "glory holes" at a business meeting.

But the hilarity really ensues when Baldwin and cast members Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis play Nintendo's Wario Land: Shake It! for the Wii.

In the game, you control Mario's chubby evil twin Wario, who can pick up enemies or bags of coins and "shake" them. Shake the Wii remote rapidly enough and enemies drop special items or bags spill their booty.

When Alec takes the remote, however, he discovers it has certain...other effects.

Sequel to SNL's Delicious Dish "Schweddy Balls" sketch?

Matt Peckham can't shake it like Baldwin, but he can still bend it like Beckham at
