“We llove llamas.”

After two llamas on the run from authorities in Arizona across the nation, CNN decided to interview a llama live in the studio Thursday night.

Don Lemon interviewed Pierre, who is unfortunately not the white llama from the infamous chase, but is still a celebrity llama.

You may remember Pierre from his appearance on Saturday Night Live or when he walked in the Greenwich Village parade.

“He’s famous. He’s been on ‘Saturday Night Live.'” Llama handler Susan to @donlemon re ‘Pierre’

Anyway, Lemon didn’t really like Pierre’s name, so he tried to rename him Lorenzo Llamas.

No, @donlemon, you can not rename #Pierre ‘Lorenzo Llama,’ and yes that is ‘so corny.’ http://t.co/xFeiqeTBed

The llama wasn’t that into the new name, which made Lemon a little nervous since CNN doesn’t have a lasso in its studio.

“Don’t run away, we don’t have a lasso.” #lorenzollamas @cnn #llama #yeesh

It was a historic interview, some people on Twitter thought:

10pm hour on CNN: Jihadi John analysis, family members of ISIS hostages, @MoWorldwide interview, and then… a llama.

Since CNN has the llama on, they might as well ask it about the plane.
