Billboard reported that in a promotional clip for an upcoming episode, Martin recreates Tom Cruise’s famous “Risky Business” scene as he mouths to Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock n Roll.”

Martin takes direct inspiration from the iconic scene, using a candleholder as a microphone just as Cruise’s character did, and wearing a button down shirt, boxer briefs and socks.

A clip of the performance, which will air on Thursday, can be watched below.
