Watch Portlandia's Take on Food Carts: Stu's Stews

On Friday night's Portlandia winter special, comedians Matt Lucas and Jim Gaffigan guest-star as the struggling food cart owners of Stu's Stews. After trying everything to attract customers — handing out stew samples, faking injuries, badgering people — Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein finally show up as the pair's first customers. Advice from Brownstein: "You could at least get on like Twitter or somewhere."

Gaffigan tweeted a photo of the cast earlier this week, writing: "In @PortlandiaTV Season 3 @realmattlucas and I play a couple of bears. No acting required." The new season starts January 4. Here's the video, courtesy Eater National:
