Starting the Season Right

SNL has had its ups and downs in the past few years with some not-so-funny moments. But with Andy Samberg joining the team, it's definitely been looking up.

Let's take a look at his addition of the SNL Digital Short. Starting with Lazy Sunday, it's really sparked some new laughs. Besides being hilarious, it shows how music and comedy fuse to make an strong effect. Remember Samberg's collabo with Natalie Portman and Justin Timberlake? Here's the new one he did about controversial political head, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Not only did he enlist the president, but Maroon 5's Adam Levine and even Jake Gyllenhaal (who does have a striking resemblance to Ahmadinejad) make a cameo. And who could miss Samberg's piano playing Vanessa-Carlton-A-Thousand-Miles-Style?

And not that it was that original to come up with a skit for High School Musical 3 (since there will be another one), but of course SNL had to take Vanessa's story, Lebron's hosting appearance and Samberg's singing skills(?) to make an entertaining 2.5ish minutes of your life.
