A portion of Amy Schumer's SNL opening monologue appears to have been inspired by a question posed to her during a Trainwreck Q&A at Google headquarters in Dublin.

The Q&A, which was hosted by Google and Universal Pictures, invited over one hundred YouTubers and bloggers to meet and question the star in Google's headquarters in Dublin's tech quarter.

During the Q&A, one of the Irish YouTubers present asked Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, Vanessa Bayer and director Judd Apatow what their most embarrassing Google searches were. 

Amy's were those she mentioned in her SNL cold open, e.g. "Can I drink on these antibiotics and do these antibiotics make my birth control obsolete?"

During Amy's debut hosting Saturday Night Live, she reunited with Trainwreck co-star Vanessa Bayer for an airplane-themed sketch.

During the Q&A, Judd Apatow's answer to the embarrassing Google search questions that he was "afraid of dying and my kids going on my computer".

He added "Should I just... kill my computer?"

During the Q&A Amy also revealed the one YouTube video she would recommend for the rest of her life (it's this one, by the way), her most embarrassing on-set experience and she tweeted from the account of Irish YouTuber Clisare.
