One of the few episodes to air from a location outside of NBC's studios at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York, the Mardi Gras Special was broadcast live from New Orleans on Mardi Gras 1977. It was hosted by Randy Newman, who also performed songs, and featured a number of special guests, including Buck Henry, Eric Idle, Cindy Williams, and Henry Winkler.
One week, instead of the beloved, in-studio zaniness of SNL, viewers were treated to this bizarre collection of short docu/mocu-mentary films. Lorraine Newman details her surreal adventures on a tropical vacation. Bill Murray semi-seriously quits comedy for the chance to play minor-league baseball. At the end of summer he again "retires" a la Lou Gehrig. Gilda Radner picks up some extra cash by offering guided tours of her New York City apartment. Jake and Elwood Blues (John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd) rip up the stage on a genuine concert tour. Garrett Morris' vignette has, sadly, faded from memory.
A clip show hosted by Billy Crystal which featured SNL's best pretaped sketches and short films from 1981 to 1985, including short films by Albert Brooks, Gary Weis, Tom Schiller, and Christopher Guest.
An anniversary show celebrating SNL's 15th season. Chevy Chase returned to reprise his "opening fall" bit in the cold open and Tom Hanks performed the opening monologue.

Simpson, and Bruce Willis.
A Mother's Day special featuring the SNL ensemble with their real-life mothers as well as a compilation of sketches from the 1992-93 season.

With each one of their memorable characters: Sandler's Opera Man, Spade's sarcastic news commenator, Rock's Nat X, Schneider's Richard the Copy Guy, and Farley's host of the Chris Farley Show.
A TV special celebrating the 25th anniversary of Saturday Night Live. Before a celebrity audience, many of the former cast members and guest hosts return to perform their signature monologues and present a look back at some of the best comedy skits and musical numbers of the past two and a half decades.
Adam Sandler and his crazy cast of characters will put you in stiches. Witness Sandler's zaniest SNL moments including:
Lucy, the Gap Girl, Brian, host of the "Denise Show", Canteen Boy, Bruce Springsteen, Opera Man, and Cajun Man.
Includes comic creations such as:
Ross Perot, Johnny Carson, Garth Algar of Wayne's World, Church Lady, Hans of Hans & Franz, Jimmy Stewart, George Bush, and Robin Leach
No other person has been a guest on Saturday Night Live as many times as the inimitable Steve Martin, which is what makes SNL's Best of Steve Martin compilation the finest of the series. This collection gives us not only clips of some of the show's funniest moments, but also a sense of how the show has evolved from the 1970s. Earlier monologues were rougher, less staged, but absolutely out of control in the best way, as Martin is given free rein to unleash his "happy feet," play the banjo, and generally explore his zaniness. The earliest clip dates from 1976 and the latest from the mid-'90s, showcasing the program's greatest players throughout the seasons--Chevy Chase, Laraine Newman, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Mike Meyers, Dana Carvey, Nora Dunn, David Spade, Jon Lovitz. The beloved classics are here, from "King Tut," with complete Egyptian regalia, to the arrow through the head to, of course, a "wild and crazy guy." Not enough for you? Well, "excuuuuuuse me." Also included are the Coneheads at home (with Martin playing a hapless IRS agent), "Jeopardy 1999," "Common Knowledge" (one of the wittiest SNL sketches ever), and ads for "Rise" and for "Steve Martin's Penis Cream." This collection will satisfy longtime SNL fans and is a great way to show newer fans what comedy is really about.
Everybody remembers Chris Farley, the big lovably guy from Saturday Night Live. Before he was the Beverly Hills Ninja, or Tommy Boy, or even before he was in Black Sheep or Almost Heroes, Chris was on Saturday Night Live and played characters like Matt Foley the energized motivational speaker, Bennet Brauer the gross-out news correspondent, Chippendales' dancer, and many more!
Shannon's unmistakable comedy antics are in full effect in this collection of sketches from SNL's wild alumna. Laugh along with her fearlessly funny characters like brazen schoolgirl Mary Katherine Gallagher and Joyologist Helen Madden.

Before he was The Nutty Professor, before he was Dr. Dolittle, and even before he was the Beverly Hills Cop, Eddie Murphy was an SNL comic! From 1981-1984 he entertained us with sketches as Gumby, Mister Robinson, Buckwheat, Velvet Jones and many more! He was before Chris Rock, Tracey Morgan, and Tim Meadows! And after Garrett Morris!
His shocking death was a tragedy, but his SNL legacy is a treasure. Here are Phil Hartman's unforgettable characterizations of Bill Clinton, Phil Donahue, Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer, Frank Sinatra, Frankenstein, Ronald Reagan, Barbara Bush and many others.
Chris rocked SNL for three seasons-here are his greatest bits, featuring Nat X, Luther Campbell, I'm Chillin'" and more. Special guests include Sinbad, Michael J. Fox and George Wendt.

Finally, you can watch the best of Brian Fellow, Astronaut Jones, Dominican Lou, Woodrow and many other characters Morgan created.
Memorable moments from the late-night sketch-comedy show are counted down.
Saturday Night Live presents a compilation of comedy sketches and a montage of Weekend Update moments featuring former cast member Jimmy Fallon. Fallon co-hosted the Weekend Update segments with head writer Tina Fey, and his deft mimicry of Adam Sandler and others during sketches may surprise viewers. Ben Affleck, Britney Spears, Janet Jackson, Jennifer Aniston, Robert DeNiro, and Paris Hilton also appear in sketches with Fallon, an SNL regular from 1998 to the 2003-04 season. Prominent fellow cast members included Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Chris Kattan, and Horatio Sanz.
Known for its sidesplitting regular cast and a parade of celebrity guest hosts, "Saturday Night Live" gives A-list actors the chance to let their hair down. (Christopher Walken, anyone?) This collection of Alec Baldwin's most memorable appearances includes the infamous "Canteen Boy" skit, in which he plays a scoutmaster to Adam Sandler's scout, and "Delicious Dish," in which Baldwin hawks "Schwetty Weiners."
This volume features Tom Hanks' work on Saturday Night Live, from his first appearance on the ill-fated '85-'86 season through the late nineties, but the majority of the material deals with the Hartman-Lovitz years, my personal favorite cast. Hanks and Lovitz, in particular, are paired quite often, especially in their frequent "Girl Watchers" sketches and an audience interview segment with Lovitz asking Hanks who his favorite performer on the show was (and he doesn't stop until he hears Jon Lovitz). Some of the stuff is familiar--the Wayne's World represented here is the Aerosmith one, and that and "Jew, not a Jew" were available on the videotape. However, there are a LOT of sketches here that will likely not see the light of day again, like Hanks, Damon Wayans, and others playing stand-up comics who deliver every line in their lives like a stand-up act, the really funny "Five-Timers" sketch, which centers around an exclusive club where five-time hosts reside (with SNL poking a little fun at its rarefied image), and a sketch where Hanks plays a loving husband that occasionally fantasizes that his wife is dead.
Stand-up comic turned SNL cast member, Jon Lovitz created some of the funniest charaters to appear on television in recent years. From Master Thespian to master impressions, you'll laugh at Lovitz playing Michael Dukakis, David Crosby, Andrew Dice Clay. Lovitz also shows his incredible talent with hilarious and memorable original characters such as The Devil, Hannukah Harry, The Liar and Annoying Man.
A retrospective of the first 5 years of Saturday Night Live.
Dan Aykroyd is sooo underrated. People always mention Chevy, Belushi, and Bill Murray, but Dan Aykroyd was the anchor to the whole shebang. If you watch this, notice how he never seems to screw up. He's always on cue, even when he's a mile a minute sleazy salesman in a fake ad. This is saying a lot, considering it was live TV in front of millions. But most of all, he's hilarious. There's Fred Garvin..Male Prostitute; the guy accused of producing dangerous Halloween costumes...like the Johnny Adventure Action Set (or something like that), which includes oily rags and a giant Zippo. He also did a Christmas toy one (not included here, unfortunately) which was simply a bag of nails. The Wild and Crazy Guys are included, as well as Elwood, and the Coneheads. Omitted, unfortunately, is his Point/Counterpoint, featuring the famous line, "Jane, you ignorant slut"; but see this anyway. It's a reminder of just how great and innovative and irreverent the Not Ready for Prime Time Players were. And how brilliant Dan Aykroyd was and is.
Gilda Radner, one of SNL's original cast members is considered to be one of the most gifted comediennes of all time. Radner's sweet and loveable appeal quickly turned her into one of America's favorite women. See all of her fantastic performances as some of the funniest characters ever seen on television, including Emily Litella, Roseanne Roseannadanna, Candy Slice, Baba Wawa and the nerdy Lisa Loopner.
During his time at SNL, original cast member John Belushi created some of the most memorable characters in television history. One of the most brilliant comedic performers of all time, Belushi's rebellious presence and intensity changed the face of comedy forever. From classic original characters like the Blues Brothers, King Bee and Samurai Warrior to incomparable impressions of Joe Cocker, Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor and more, you can experience the best of Belushi for years to come.
A look back at the funniest and most memorable commercial parodies from the past years of SNL, originally broadcast in the early 90s, hosted by Kevin Nealon and Victoria Jackson; later revisited in 2005, hosted by Will Ferrell, featuring a wrap-around of Ferrell heading to a commercial audition; re-edited and shown with newer commercial parodies on March 8, 2009, under the title SNL: Just Commercials
In what is revealed to be a commercial for the vegetable, two friends (Will Forte, Andy Samberg) discuss the death of an unnamed friend while taking large bites out of heads of lettuce. Written and filmed in November 2005 and originally cut from dress rehearsal of the Eva Longoria episode.
Parnell and Samberg rhyme about The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, cupcakes, Mr. Pibb, Red Vines, Matthew Perry, and a host of other products. The short became a viral video online. Music produced by Jorma Taccone.
A Chuck Norris fan (Jason Sudeikis) sings a rock ballad about the action star (Samberg) before he became famous. There are cameos by Fred Armisen as a criminal mugging a woman, played by Amy Poehler, and Taccone as a man being robbed by Bill Hader.
Joel (Armisen) rambles endlessly about a restaurant he visited to his friend Liz (Kristen Wiig) at first, and becomes so involved in the story that he fails to notice that he is discovered by talent scouts (Hader, Parnell), stars in a movie with Scarlett Johansson, becomes a national phenomenon, and then loses it all when his movie flops at the box office. Brian Williams, MTV correspondent Gideon Yago, and Conan O'Brien also make cameo appearances.
This short was filmed the week of the Johansson episode, but was cut after dress rehearsal from both that episode and the Peter Sarsgaard episode before finally airing on the Steve Martin/Prince episode.
Two old friends from school (Forte, Steve Martin) meet up after years apart, greeting each other loudly while standing with their faces only an inch apart.
Natalie Portman is interviewed about her life and responds with a rap proving she is a "badass bitch", poking fun at her clean and intellectual image. She slaps Seth Meyers and throws a chair at Parnell. Samberg appears as Flavor Flav. Music produced by Jorma Taccone and Asa Taccone, and mixed by Ben Lovett
Meyers, Forte, and Samberg are on a lunch break and start to notice that each one has a doppelgänger nearby. After Meyers and Forte say that a large bum (Horatio Sanz) is Samberg's doppelgänger, they kill the real Samberg in an evil twin scenario.
In a frame story, Hader and Samberg pitch their new ultra low-budget Digital Short, Laser Cats! to SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels. In the Laser Cats! short itself (a short within a short), Hader and Samberg play the heroes Nitro and Admiral Spaceship in a post-nuclear war world in which cats can shoot lasers from their mouths and are used as weapons. They are saving the princess (Lindsay Lohan) from the evil Robotron (Will Forte). Rachel Dratch makes an appearance, disguising herself as the princess/Lohan. Jorma Taccone appears in the opening credits for Laser Cats!. Fred Armisen also makes a cameo.
Laser Cats! is shot in the SNL offices with gleeful haphazardness because, according to Samberg in the special Saturday Night Live in the 2000s, “it’s supposed to suck.”
Sometimes controversial but always hilarious, Robert Smigel's "TV Funhouse" cartoons have contained some of Saturday Night Live's most memorable material in recent years. Ace and Gary, "The Ambiguously Gay Duo" (voiced by Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert), host this critically acclaimed collection, which features hits like "X-Presidents," "Saddam and Osama," "The Narrator That Ruined Christmas," "Smurfette," "The New Adventures of Mr. T," "Fun With Real Audio" and more, with appearances by the full cast of SNL.
Friends in the early 1990s (Kenan Thompson, Forte, and Parnell) discuss the music video by pop stars Ariel (Andy Samberg) and Efrim (Tom Hanks), where we see the lyrics consist of constantly begging for their testicles not to be harmed, in a parody of Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy" and C+C Music Factory's "Gonna Make You Sweat". Also, Fred Armisen plays the guitar player, Jorma Taccone appears as a backup dancer, and Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph are women in the video.
A distraught man (Samberg), pressed against the side of a building, threatens to jump to his death. A second man (Forte), using a bullhorn, tries to talk him out of it. After a bit of dialogue, it is revealed that the distraught man is safely on the ground and his friend is kneeling mere inches away from him. The short ends after it is revealed to be a commercial for peyote.
Peyote was written and filmed after Lettuce had aired, making it the second SNL Digital Short made by The Lonely Island. It was deemed "too similar" to Lettuce to be aired right away, however, so the group produced Lazy Sunday to showcase other aspects of their comedic range.
Samberg asks factual questions of passers-by outside NBC Studios in the style of the Jay Leno bit Jaywalking, instead laughing off correct answers as false. John Lutz (a then writer for SNL) makes a cameo as a man walking that Andy ridicules.
Conner4real (Samberg) sings about hooking up with a girl (Vanessa Bayer) who used the assassination of Osama bin Laden (episode host Fred Armisen) as an example of the kind of sex she wanted to have. Cast member Jay Pharoah also makes a cameo appearance as Barack Obama.
From the soundtrack for The Lonely Island's feature film, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.
Cheri Oteri's peppy, energetic style always made her characters on SNL hilarious to watch. From physical comedy (along side Will Ferrell) as the Cheerleader, Arianna, to impressions of Barbara Walters and Judge Judy, to wacky characters like Rita Del Vecchio, Nadeen or prescription drug junkie Collette Reardon, Cheri made audiences laugh so hard they often needed time to "Simma Down."
Since the creation of Saturday Night Live in the 1970s, one of the signatures of the show has been its commercial parodies. From subtle to outrageous, silly to realistic, SNL has always been able to poke fun at the folks on Madison Avenue with a variety of products not actually for sale. Now you can enjoy your favorite commercial parodies that have aired over the past 30 years, hosted by funny man Will Ferrell. Watch classics like "Little Chocolate Donuts," "Happy Fun Ball," "Mom Jeans," "Colon Blow," "Taco Town," "Love Toilet," "Oops I Crapped My Pants" or "Bassomatic" again and again.
New office employee Gary (Bill Hader) gets into a fight to the death with incumbent cubicle holder Steve (episode host Dane Cook). Jason Sudeikis appears as the boss and Andy Samberg, Will Forte, Fred Armisen, Kenan Thompson, Amy Poehler and Kristen Wiig are other employees cheering on the fight.
Harpoon Man (John C. Reilly), a suave action hero and parody of Shaft, tracks down an insulting announcer dressed as a whale (Samberg), who is narrating his life in a theme song. There are appearances by Jorma Taccone, who plays a man getting robbed, and Bill Hader, who plays the man robbing Taccone.
A fast food boss (Armisen) gives his employees (Forte, Matthew Fox, Poehler, Samberg, Thompson) a pep talk and has trouble controlling his anger until one of his employees (Forte) comes in late.
It originally was scheduled to air on the episode hosted by Matthew Fox (which explains his appearance), but ended up airing on the following episode hosted by Annette Bening.
The trailer for Mel Gibson's film Apocalypto is newly subtitled, implying that the Jews destroyed the Maya civilization, in reference to Gibson's anti-semitic remarks in 2006.
A Christmas song about two men (Justin Timberlake and Samberg) giving their lovers (Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph) a box with their genitalia inside as presents, in a style reminiscent of early 1990s R&B sex ballads made popular by acts such as Bel Biv Devoe, Color Me Badd, and R. Kelly.
Won a 2007 Creative Arts Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Music and Lyrics. Music created in part by Asa Taccone, Jorma Taccone and Katreese Barnes. It was the first official single from The Lonely Island's debut album, Incredibad.
In the same frame-story format, Hader and Samberg apologize to Lorne Michaels for the original Laser Cats! claiming to understand where they went wrong: not enough politics. They then introduce Laser Cats! 2, based on the same premise, now set in the Iraq War which has gone nuclear and caused the feline mutations. This time, Dr. Scientist (Jake Gyllenhaal) has stolen the cure that turns Laser Cats back into regular cats. Jorma Taccone appears in the opening credits for Laser Cats! 2 (Which is the same as Laser Cats!), and Fred Armisen and Amy Poehler are the scientists who created the cure.
Scott Garbaciak (Samberg) is the multi-role star in a commercial for the fictional film Nurse Nancy, in parody of Eddie Murphy films such as Norbit and The Nutty Professor.
In three parodies of MacGyver, the titular hero (Forte) demands odd objects of his disgusted sidekicks (Jeremy Piven, Rudolph) in his attempts to stop catastrophic events that are mere seconds away. The episodes invariably end with his failure to stop the event.
Drew Barrymore is Desiree, host of a 1986 sexually suggestive, low-impact, high-result exercise video Body Fuzion, with "her friends" Donna, Michelle, and Donna M. (Rudolph, Wiig, and Poehler respectively).
Will Ferrell reprises his role as President George W. Bush and Tina Fey once again appeared as Gov. Sarah Palin in the cold opening.
A Staten Island Zoo worker (Wiig) introduces Staten Island Tech High School student's crude and vile documentary on sloths before previewing it herself.
A corporate executive (Rainn Wilson) leads a meeting to take ideas on how to save his failing company, and hears suggestions from an increasingly bizarre set of employees, including a gigantic turkey sub and Arcade Fire. Upon reaching the end of the meeting, Wilson receives a phone call, seemingly informing him that the office building is about to be blown up. Then, the office building explodes, killing all of them inside.
Super Bowl MVP Peyton Manning takes time out to be a mentor to kids, but ends up being physically, mentally, and verbally abusive to them (a parody of his public service announcements for the United Way during 2001–05).
In a spoof of The O.C. episode "The Dearly Beloved", a man (Hader) writes a letter to his sister, he is shot by his friend (Samberg), leading to a series of overly dramatic, slow-motion shootings set to "Hide and Seek" by Imogen Heap, including their roommate (Shia LaBeouf), the sister (Wiig), and two police officers (Sudeikis, Armisen).
Samberg performs a rhyme about how much he likes his brother in-law named Roy (SNL writer Bryan Tucker).
Enjoy some of the best sketches from the 2006 - 07 season including "A-Holes" Jason Sudeikis and Kristen Wiig Darrell Hammond's impression of Donald Trump Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph in "Bronx Beat" and SNL Digital Short "D**k in a Box" featuring Andy Sambergand Justin Timberlake.The 2006 - 07 season also included some hilarious performances from hosts Alec Baldwin Dane Cook Jake Gyllenhaal Hugh Laurie Matthew Fox Ludacris former cast member Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Super Bowl champion Peyton Manning in a very special public service announcement.
A documentary look at the long-running variety program during two seperate eras: the overpopulated early-90s cast that featured Chris Farley and Adam Sandler, and the zany late-90s cast that featured Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon.
In three more segments, the titular hero (Forte), after 15 years of sobriety, begins drinking just as his sidekicks (Molly Shannon, Rudolph) need his bomb-defusing skills most. MacGruber's behavior evolves into a parody of David Hasselhoff's hangover video.
While meeting the owner of an apartment (Zach Braff) that is available for sublet, a potential candidate (Samberg) is shocked to find out that the owner's dog (voiced by Taccone) not only can talk, but has fallen in love with him. He finds out later that the dog was using him to get a plate of ham. The owner implies that this happens regularly, but the dog convinces the man that it's still something more, and the man ends up French kissing the dog.
Samberg sings a love song for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Armisen), along with Adam Levine from Maroon 5, sampling "Avril 14th" by Aphex Twin, with a chorus based on the 1982 A Flock of Seagulls hit "I Ran (So Far Away)". Jake Gyllenhaal has a cameo, owing to the observation that Ahmadinejad looks like "a very hairy Jake Gyllenhaal".
In three more segments, the titular hero (Forte) becomes obsessed with his recent plastic surgeries just as his sidekicks (Seth Rogen, Rudolph) need his bomb-defusing skills most.
In a style similar to the Season 32 Digital Short Andy Popping Into Frame, Samberg sneaks up on people and punches them just as they area about to start eating their respective foods, then gleefully dances afterwards. His victims include Forte, Armisen, Sudeikis, Taccone, episode host Jon Bon Jovi, and Taylor Hawkins and Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters. The victims, who have turned into zombies, show up en masse and chase Samberg around the world before breaking out into the Zombie Dance. The shorts ends with a close-up shot of Samberg's face above a graphic that reads, "Believe in Your Dreams".

A fake commercial about a woman (Kristen Wiig) offering free hot air balloon rides to combat the long lines and intrusive searches at airports.
There was a 2nd part to this commercial, in which Horsen flies over New York and Montreal, that was cut for time from the original airing. Both parts aired during Alec Baldwin's 2008–2009 appearance.
A girl (Ellen Page) wakes up from a nightmare and begins seeing a zombie (Samberg) in her bathroom mirror, which turns out to be the nightmare of the zombie, a wolf man (Forte), and a woman named Debbie (Wiig) who is married to Dracula (Sudeikis). After several nightmares, the camera returns to Page waking up from a nightmare, and as the short ends, the zombie pops up at her bedside.
This sequel to "SNL: The First Five Years" looks at the most tumultuous ten-year period in the show's history.
An apparently wealthy man (Samberg) sings about crime infecting the city, then turns into a superhero (à la Batman) and tries to save a woman (Amy Adams) from being mugged, only to have the mugger (Sudeikis) beat him to death.
Episode host Jonah Hill confesses to Samberg that he has fallen in love with his father, Ben Samberg (played by longtime SNL writer Jim Downey). Hader also confesses the same thing.
MacGruber (Forte) feels insecure when his assistant (Jonah Hill) says that he cannot do his job when he and Vicky (Wiig) need his bomb-defusing skills the most.
Only two segments aired. In the third segment (which is available on some video websites), Hader appears as MacGruber's life coach.
Samberg and Hader interrupt Lorne Michaels' dinner with Christopher Dodd (appearing as himself) to attempt to pitch Laser Cats! again, this time with a scene enhanced by 3D glasses. The plot revolves around a ban on all laser cats and a battle against the corrupt Mayor Top-Hat (Thompson). Christopher Walken appears as a general.
Samberg appears in an amateur, early-90s music video about a girl who loves to drink daiquiris. Meanwhile, text scrolls up the screen explaining that the producers apologize for airing the video because a certain musical guest (Gnarls Barkley) failed to appear for the shooting of a digital short, despite an agreement to do otherwise.
Samberg and host Shia LaBeouf sing a high-energy country song for an infomercial about Samberg's new dress shirt, black socks, no pants look (the best look in the world). Armisen, Forte, Thompson, Sudeikis, and Hader all appear as people following the trend (a dad, a husband, two cops, and an illiterate genie).
MacGruber and his son, Merrill (Shia LaBeouf), team up together. However, in the process of escaping, Merrill inadvertently confesses that he's gay (by showing anal lubricant, a vibrating dildo, and his boyfriend Scott (Samberg) showing up) leaving MacGruber to make him straight again by reciting Bible verses and forcing him to kiss Vicky (Wiig).
Ricky Gervais presents a clip from a Japanese show that was his inspiration for The Office, featuring Japanese versions of Michael (Steve Carell), Dwight (Hader), Jim (Sudeikis), Pam (Wiig), and Stanley (Thompson). Also, Darrell Hammond plays Regis Philbin in a tampon commercial.
At the end of the episode, Gervais comments "It's funny 'cause it's racist".
Samberg, dressed in a white pompadour wig and spangled jumpsuit, sings a song promoting a low-budget, ill-planned, ultimately doomed athletic competition held in space in the year 3022. Athletes are portrayed by Sudeikis, Casey Wilson, Hader, and episode host Michael Phelps.
In this spoof of teen dramas, a young man (James Franco) is talked to by a girl (Kristen Wiig). Some small talk is made, until the subject of his small "ding-dong" comes up. Then another girl (an uncredited cameo by future season 35 host Blake Lively) comes up to him and tells him she has a small "ding-dong", too.
Samberg and Wiig compete in nonsensical activities, from arm wrestling to human ATM. Forte is the pathetic referee, Thompson is an ATM customer, and Anne Hathaway appears when Samberg wins the "become Jane" (Austen) challenge.
MacGruber discovers he lost all his money in the stock market and seeks desperate ways for cash just as his sidekicks (Josh Brolin, Wiig) need his bomb-defusing skills most.
Samberg walks around New York City asking people if they're registered to vote, which Wiig's character points out had ended two weeks prior. Meanwhile, Samberg also fights back vomiting a spicy hot dog he stole.
(Aired with the official "An SNL Digital Short" title card during the third episode of the show's limited-run series Weekend Update Thursday.)
Samberg plays a college student legalist who has converted to Rastafarianism, who sings boastfully (and stereotypically) about the culture, while being aware that he's not fit for it when he walks by a group of actual Rastas. Wiig and Wilson appear as backup singers. (The real backup is actually provided by J. Newsom and Maya Rudolph). In the Incredibad version, the song ends with a fade. Music produced by Sly & Robbie.
A sequel to the "Sloths" video, only with Jason Sudeikis as the head of the Staten Island Zoo instead of Kristen Wiig. The same students create a video that proclaims giraffes are from outer space and will destroy mankind.
A look at SNL's past and present political sketches; special guests John McCain and Sarah Palin.
In a clip from Paul Rudd's new movie, Samberg romantically paints him nude and then Rudd returns the favor (A parody of the film Titanic). While selling the painting at an auction, it is shown to be so graphic that everyone who sees it begins convulsing violently, vomiting, bleeding from the eyes, and committing violent acts of suicide. Fred Armisen appears as the auctioneer, Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig as Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood respectively (parodying the ending of Raiders of the Lost Ark), and Casey Wilson as the interviewer.
Kristen Wiig reprises her role as Virgania Horsen in a crudely made commercial for her new business, which consists of mail delivery by horse.
(The first short featuring Wiig in this role, Virgania Horsen’s Hot Air Balloon Rides, originally aired on February 23, 2008 without the official "An SNL Digital Short" title card.)
Samberg and Taccone rap about their personal experiences with premature ejaculation, often at the slightest provocation. Schaffer plays the role of a DJ who mixes beats for the other two as they perform. Molly Sims, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, and Justin Timberlake make cameo appearances.
The third single from The Lonely Island's debut album, Incredibad, and the first music video featuring all three members.
A corporate executive (Hugh Laurie) announces to the department heads that things are not going well and drastic steps may need to be taken. As the others ask questions and fret about their futures, Marcus (Armisen) becomes increasingly distracting as he stretches himself out to reach a plate of cookies on the table. At the end of the skit, another executive (Thompson) reveals that the "cookies" are really laxatives.
A clip show episode highlighting SNL's many sports-themed sketches and the many sports stars who have appeared on the show, such as Derek Jeter, Peyton Manning, Michael Phelps, Nancy Kerrigan, Walter Payton, Joe Montana, Michael Jordan, and Charles Barkley.
Neil Patrick Harris and the entire SNL cast perform the theme to Doogie Howser, M.D.. Harris wears a tuxedo while everyone else is dressed as Doogie Howser in blonde wigs, lab coats with a picture ID of Doogie on them, dress shirts, colorful ties, acid washed jeans, and Nike hi-tops (Armisen and Samberg wear green sunglasses as well). Harris plays keyboard; Wilson, Elliott, and Michaela Watkins play violin; Moynihan plays tuba; Thompson plays harp; Hader plays saxophone; Hammond plays trumpet; Wiig plays electric guitar; Sudeikis plays double bass; Forte plays drum kit; Armisen plays synthesizer; and Samberg plays an Akai MPC 2000XL drum machine. At the end of the performance, Harris sheds a single tear.
Samberg and Fred Armisen casually talk in a break room while Forte sings about every little thing that they're doing (giving each other a high five, reading magazines, drinking soda, and wearing dresses). At the end, it's revealed to actually be a commercial for the D.A.R.E. program.
It was originally cut from the Ben Affleck dress rehearsal.
Episode host Steve Martin walks into the office of Lorne Michaels and asks if he could air a short video that he and "some film people" made, which turns out to be yet another installment of Laser Cats!. It becomes evident that Samberg and Bill Hader have put Martin up to the task of presenting the short, crediting him as Executive Producer as well. A "half human, half Laser Cat, half RoboCop" named Cyber-Face (Kenan Thompson) is presented to a group of scientists by their colleague (Will Forte) but quickly goes haywire. Admiral Spaceship (Samberg) and Nitro (Hader) intervene to put an end to its killing spree, and are shocked to find out that Cyber-Face is Admiral Spaceship's estranged father (Martin) right before he is gunned down by police officers. Cyeber-Face apologizes for being a deadbeat dad and reveals that Spaceship and Nitro are brothers before self-destructing. Michaels kicks everyone out of his office in disgust.
Samberg wins a prize from a cereal box for a boat trip for three people and selects Schaffer and, to Taccone's surprise and dismay, T-Pain to join him. The short then cuts to the lucky trio performing an "aggressive" and expletive-laden rap about their boat ride (the word "fuck" is used 17 times), with occasional shots of Taccone having a miserable time back on land.
The fourth single from The Lonely Island's debut album, Incredibad.
Samberg blackmails the Jonas Brothers with a videotape of them as an '80s band called Property of the Queen. Samberg ultimately wants to know how they stayed young for 25 years and it is revealed that the wizard featured in one of their music videos (Bill Hader) kept them young.
MacGruber is joined by MacGyver (Richard Dean Anderson), who reveals that he's MacGruber's long-lost father (MacGruber's full name is actually "MacGruber MacGyver"), who left MacGruber's mother (Abby Elliott) for a stripper.
A look back at the funniest and most memorable commercial parodies from the past years of SNL. Hosted by Will Ferrell, featuring a wrap-around of Ferrell heading to a commercial audition.
This was originally broadcast in the early 90s, hosted by Kevin Nealon and Victoria Jackson, but was re-edited and shown with newer commercial parodies.
A look at SNL's past and present game show parodies.
Samberg and Hader are at a party where everyone and everything is a literal representation of a slang term (i.e., a "serial rapist" (Forte) is shown having sex with a box of cereal, a group of "motherfuckers" are men with their mothers, a group of "sons of bitches" are a litter of puppies, a "numbnuts" is a man (John Lutz) shown sitting on a block of ice with his pants around his ankles, a group of "jokers" are dressed as different incarnations of The Joker from The Dark Knight, a knucklehead is a hand with plastic eyes glued on it, etc.). When Samberg and Hader discover "two douchebags", however, it's revealed that they're looking at themselves in a mirror.
During a performance review conducted by episode host Seth Rogen, Samberg raps about his typical day as the boss of a large company. The first few activities he names are what one might expect, such as approving memos and micromanaging his staff (John Mulaney). His actions become increasingly erratic, however, after a subordinate (Kristin Wiig) rejects his advances and he is consequently denied a promotion. The boss's description ends with him turning into a jet, crashing into the sun, and dying. Rogen leaves the performance review in apparent disgust as Samberg repeatedly reminds him, "I'm the boss."
The fifth single from The Lonely Island's debut album, Incredibad, Rogen's voice replaces Schaffer's as the company evaluator, though Schaffer does appear in the short as a hooded gun dealer. Taccone also makes a cameo appearance as the man who hands Samberg a notice about a harassment lawsuit filed by Wiig.
Five months after the events of "Dick in a Box," Samberg and Timberlake's characters (who have just been released from prison) sing about special gifts for Mother's Day, with Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson appearing as their mothers. They decide the best present for them would be for them to have sex with the other's mother. They proclaim it is the second best idea they have ever had. The song was originally omitted from sessions for the album Incredibad, as produced by Asa Taccone and Drew Campbell. The fourth single from The Lonely Island's second album, Turtleneck & Chain.

A beatnik (Samberg) performs slam poetry about how he fights "the system" by throwing objects on the ground. His actions quickly become bizarre as he throws a child's birthday cake, his girlfriend's cellphone, and a fish bowl on the ground for no apparent reason. Things take a turn for the worse when the beatnik attacks Ryan Reynolds' and Elijah Wood (both appearing as themselves) during their dinner by flipping their table. An incensed Wood and Reynolds chase down the beatnik and taser him "in the butthole."
The 15th track on The Lonely Island's second album, Turtleneck & Chain.
A 1990s commercial for two amateur laser magicians (played by Fred Armisen and episode host Drew Barrymore).

Andy Samberg sings a very raunchy techno/hip-hop ballad about his love, Reba McEntire. Samberg seems completely unaware that "Reba" is actually just a homeless man (played by Kenan Thompson) who found a red wig in a dumpster and is masquerading as the country superstar despite looking and sounding nothing like her.

The saxophonist is loosely based on a scene from the 1987 film The Lost Boys featuring musician Timmy Cappello.

Zach Galifianakis shows up on the sets of various NBC shows (with fictional scenes and archival footage) either talking to the actors, or just standing in the background, finishing with a clip from a 1984 SNL episode hosted by Robin Williams showing a bearded child (supposedly Galifinakis) and the words: "Zack Galifinakis: on TV for over 30 years."
The NBC Website has posted this as a Digital Short, despite that it didn't have the "SNL Digital Short" title screen on the televised version.

An unemployed cocaine addict named Dennis (Samberg) goes on drug binge while singing an elaborately choreographed Disneyesque musical-theater number about how it is going to be a great day.

The grape jelly (Andy Samberg) comes to life and claims not to be the cause of the girl's broken appendages.
Shy Ronnie (Samberg) and Clyde (Rihanna) team up for a second time to rob a bank. Unfortunately, Ronnie's social awkwardness puts the heist in jeopardy and forces Clyde to do most of the work. He raps aggressively when Clyde leaves. Cameo by episode host Jon Hamm as a bank customer-turned-hostage.

At a clothing store, a man (Samberg) is unconvinced that the V-neck shirt he is trying on is for him, despite his girlfriend's (Pedrad) assurances. But when the store owner (episode host Ben Stiller), wearing a deeper V enters, Samberg attempts to one-up him and asks a clerk for "something deeper" starting an impromptu V-neck battle, ending with the store clerk getting arrested for indecent exposure.
Andy conducts several short and increasingly bizarre interviews with actor-singer Drake. Each segment follows a very literal theme as described by a title card (announced by Don Pardo) that appears onscreen before each interview.

A depressed singer (Samberg) sings about how his girlfriend left him for another man (Armisen). Samberg gestures towards the sky, hoping it will rain, but it doesn't (and gets urinated on by a man on the roof).

In an early '80s-style instructional video, a nerdy man dressed like Carl Sagan (Samberg) shows viewers how to seduce women by playing chess, but the first two women (played by Nasim Pedrad and Abby Elliott) beat him. The instructor then changes the game to checkers and still gets beaten by a woman (Kristen Wiig). He tries Jenga, but ends up knocking the tower over. He tries eating glass, but ends up scaring the woman he's trying to seduce (played by special guest Olivia Wilde). The instructor (with his lips and mouth now bandaged up) gives up and lectures on how to hire a prostitute.

The lunatic then builds a time machine, retrieving two cavemen, Marilyn Monroe (played by Nasim Pedrad), Amelia Earhart (played by Vanessa Bayer), Abraham Lincoln (played by John Solomon), and Julius Caesar from the past, who, along with Samberg, the lunatic, and the lunatic's "failed bird-man experiment" (who briefly left the duo to have sex with a white girl at the mall) wish the audience a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Host Charles Barkley guest stars as Marvin "Gay" Jackson, who sings a duet with Convoluted Jerry.
A man (Samberg) and woman (Wiig) dressed in '70s-style clothing declare their love for each other in song. As the camera pulls back we can see that they are connected by their shared enormous afro. An unexplained man in janitor's clothing (Kenan Thompson) appears in between every verse and plays one riff on a strange instrument such as conch shell or didgeridoo. When the camera has pulled all the way back, revealing the full, massive afro, the couple invites the viewer to come to their wedding, whereupon the video is revealed to be a Save the Date. RSVP options "Yes" and "No" appear. "No" is clicked.
To test the effects of stress on the human heart, a man (Jonah Hill) is hit repeatedly in the testicles by tennis balls fired from a tennis ball machine. Things get more bizarre as he continues to get hit even though the machine is turned off. A ghost hunter (Kenan Thompson) reveals to the host of Science Finders (Andy Samberg) that a ghost (Taran Killam) is the one hurling balls at the man. The man flatlines and a doctor (Fred Armisen) uses hits to the groin to revive the man.
Despite Lorne Michaels' objections, Hader and Samberg show him the latest Laser Cats short – this time directed by Steven Spielberg (appearing as both himself and a "Hitchcockian" cameo in the short), which contains many references to his films, including E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Samberg and Taran Killam visit Gotye in his dressing room, then stalk him by appearing in nothing but body paint and black wigs (as seen in the "Somebody That I Used To Know" music video).

A compilation of SNL Digital Shorts.
In a parody of stereotypical electronic dance music performers, the DJ Davvincii (Samberg) performs a number of unrelated activities rather than actually mixing music. Lil Jon and the entire Season 39 cast also appear.
Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Pharrell sing about how their hugs are the best but they won't lead to any kind of romantic commitment. Tatiana Maslany and Maya Rudolph (as Oprah Winfrey) make cameo appearances, as does Akiva Schaffer (who does not have any vocals on this track).
This video was included on the DVD accompanying The Lonely Island's third album, The Wack Album.
A compilation of SNL Thanksgiving-themed sketches.
Past sketches involving the NFL are shown.
A special dedicated to Valentine's Day.
