Minaj and Franco may seem like an odd pairing, but it totally works to their advantage. In the promo, the rapper and Hollywood actor pay homage to Peter Pan Live by trying to fly, as they say in sync, "Off to never, never land!" They soon realize they didn't put their wires on.

Then, in another part of the promo, Franco calls Minaj "Nick" and claims they're "really good friends in real life" as they break out into a handshake with Eskimo kisses involved. They even shout "Besties" at each other at the end of it.

Franco even took to Instagram yesterday to show a photo of their adorable Eskimo kiss close up. See it below.

 ME AND @nickiminaj! BESTIES, duh! Get ready for @snl, this SATURDAY!
