Saturday Night Live’s ‘Lazy Sunday’

This has to be one of the funniest skits ever done on Saturday Night Live. Actually it’s not a skit but rather a short pre-recorded video. ‘Lazy Sunday’ is a rap video basically with Chris Parnell and new-comer Andy Samberg, that tells of a recent lazy Sunday when they decided to go watch The “Chronic…(WHAT?)…Cles” of Narnia. It will remind you of Beastie Boys rap videos that feature the more down to Earth side of New York.

I laughed so hard when I saw this last Saturday when Jack Black hosted and I’ve discovered that I wasn’t the only one. It has in less than 10 days become an Internet sensation! iTunes is giving it away for free. It’s been blogged about all over. Its been downloaded over 1.2 million times from It has even inspired t-shirts!

You can watch it here.

While Parnell has been on SNL for a few years now and even has a reputation for rapping every now and then, but 27 year old Andy Samberg is a rookie on the show.

Samberg and two childhood friends, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer, reunited after college in 2001 to make comedy shorts and music videos under the moniker The Lonely Island, posting the clips online at

Their Web site drew a hefty following, and “The Dudes,” as they’re known, were soon writing pilots for FOX and Comedy Central. Their big break came after writing material for 2005 MTV Movie Awards host Jimmy Fallon, who recommended them to “SNL” producers.

Samberg nailed his “SNL” audition, thanks to a frantic four-day writing session with Taccone and Schaffer. But the best news was yet to come: The show then hired Samberg’s two cohorts as writers. [article]
