Daft Punk placed an ad during last week’s SNL. It contained a 15 second clip of new music. Some guy looped the 15 seconds into a 10 minute recording. Some genius added a loop to Ron Swanson dancing and suddenly it’s CAN’T MISS stuff. Enjoy:
Kenan Thompson has been on SNL since
1993 2003. In his youth, he was in a couple of the best movies of the 90′s, Heavyweights and Mighty Ducks 2. Kenan was a cast member on The Steve Harvey Show which might explain why he does a decent impression of Harvey.
Here is the skit from this weekend where he helps a man get over his phobia of horses while explaining to people that his phobia is falling asleep and having his mustache choke him to death.
Christoph Waltz hosted SNL last weekend. During the monologue they pranced out a number of characters meant to make fun of Waltz’s native Austria, one of which was Casual Hitler played by Taran Killam.
Casual Hitler is probably very offensive to a lot of people, but it can’t be more offensive than some of the movies Taran (who is very funny) was in before getting on to SNL, like Big Fat Liar or Epic Movie.
Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake sported steeshes in the SNL Digital Short, Dick in a Box. I saw this for the first time in a while last night and it still made me laugh. I don’t know what’s harder to believe – that it’s been around for 6 year and that I still laugh at penis jokes.
After watching Saturday Night Live this week, with host Jeremy Renner, I had two lasting thoughts. First he surprised me with his signing voice which was very good, and then he surprised me by how short he was. Here he is with a mustache in a sketch that didn’t even air on the show. I know this post isn’t glamorous, but it’s all I got.
Sometimes when I have had a slow posting week and I feel I owe to myself and others to post, I’ll simply search celebrity birthdays to see if I get any steesh-hits. Well today was a rough one. The only person I recognized with steesh was Omar Gooding (Jr.) and he’s already been featured here (and even had his management reply to the post).
Anyway, somehow on that list of Celebrity Birthdays, celebrity being used very loosely here, was Chris Kattan. He was not too bad on SNL and went on to make one of my brother’s favorite movies, Corky Romano. It also appears he was in an IFC mini-series called Bollywood Hero where he sported a steesh.
I like to imagine his birthday cake is an apple pie, and he destroys it like Mr. Peppers. Happy birthday, Chris!
Joseph Gordon Levitt hosted another pretty good SNL over the weekend. They had him wearing a steesh as the son of the Most Interesting Man in the World in a spoof of the Dos Equis commercials. The beer is called Tres Equis, and I tried to get myself fired today by searching “Joseph Gordon Levitt XXX.”
You can watch the video on NBC.com if you have a few hours to kill while their website loads.
The new season of SNL premiered this weekend with host Seth MacFarlane. In one particularly funny bit, Steve Harvey’s new daytime talk show has a makeover segment where he makes Seth MacFarlane’s character over to look just like him. It doesn’t take much to amuse me.
Update: I tried to embed the video earlier, but as we all know Hulu is the devil so here is the link:
John Belushi was a comedian, actor, and musician. He is best known as a cast member on Saturday Night Live and for his roles in movies like Animal House and The Blues Brothers. He was the older brother of Jim Belushi, who has not been afraid to ride his brother’s coattails, even years after John’s death.
Of course John died of a drug overdose on March 5, 1982. I never realized until now that someone was charged for murder in his death, though later the charge was reduced to manslaughter, for shooting the drugs into John.
Drugs are horrible, even if you’re just the one pumping them into your friends.
Bobby Moynihan has been on SNL for a few years. This one is kind of a cheat because I’m not sure he’s ever had a mustache, at least I couldn’t find a picture of him. But when I think of him I always picture a steesh.
Here he is as Anthony Crispino, who’s one of Bobby’s more popular characters on SNL. If you want to a see a video of him, just google “Anthonly Crispino.” All the ones showing up are from Hulu, which I refuse to post because I have a soul. His “Drunk Uncle” is also very funny.
