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!
