Jim Carrey will definitely be in a trick or treat mode for “Saturday Night Live’s” Halloween show — with the emphasis on tricks, according to a new promo.

Carrey appears in a couple of quick shots to announce his guest hosting gig and musical guest Iggy Azalea.

SNL cast member Aidy Bryant plays the foil while Carrey goes through a number of goofs.

He kicks off the promo with an impression of Jason, the hockey-mask-wearing serial killer form the “Friday the 13th” movie series. Watch what he does with the mask!

At one point, Carrey feels like there’s “not enough buzz” in the promo. “We need to do something right now that will get headlines; that will cut through the clutter and make hashtags happen,” he says.

“I don’t know… maybe we should start dating?” Bryant replies. “New relationships are always a big deal”

Would you believe they come up with “#jaidy?”

This is Carrey’s third time hosting. The veteran comic is sure to inject some humor into the sometimes uneven sketch comedy show.
