Mother's Day Will Never Be the Same Again

Saturday Night Live is a show that has been through so many major ups and downs since its inception in 1975 that I think a lot of people gave up on it but in our house it is still on just about every weekend. I have heard many references to bad casts or terrible writing over the past handful of years. There are people who swear that Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase were the last funny cast members. Still others were Dana Carvey, Molly Shannon, or perhaps even Adam Sandler fans. Regardless if the current cast is being showered with accolades by the general public, I personally feel there are a few gems in the bunch and one of those is definitely Andy Samberg.

Andy is quickly becoming the Digital Short guru in this generation of SNL and he frequently brings other cast members, hosts and musical guests into his crazy plots every week. Those who are willing to take the ride with him will quickly discover their shameless act of courage emblazoned all over the internet the following day. When it’s really good the video is up a few hours after the original airing. Such was the case with last night’s short film.

Three time host, and all around hilarious one at that, Justin Timberlake was back to share his special brand of humor with everyone. Just like the last time Andy and Justin made a short, this week’s was hilarious, even if it was wrong on oh so many levels. Watch out for their Moms, you just might recognize them both.

Happy Mother’s Day ♥

EDIT: Thanks for the info on the vid no longer working Chris. Hopefully this link from hulu will do the trick.

The copyright police have latched on to the video. Can't view it. But I agree, Samberg is pretty funny.

IMO, the early years and then the Carvey/Myers years were the best.
