This Saturday the 12th of May saw the famous sketch comedy show NBC’s Saturday Night Live celebrating its 100th digital short. The sleek fantastic compilation of The Lonely Island’s output, in addition to an incredible production feat to get all of those past participants back for another go around was simply outstanding. It was one Easter Egg after another, wonderfully weaved together as both celebration, deconstruction, and summation.
The clip had Justin Bieber posing as one of the masterminds of the well acclaimed digital shorts. The original masterminds of the digital shorts are Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone. Well Justin replaced Akiva Schaffer and was seen with Andy & Jorma welcoming all the other celebrities one by one.
The show saw a cameo from this week’s host Will Farrell and took us back to some memorable classic moments which included Justin Timberlake and Samberg’s ” … In a Box” and its follow-ups “Mother Lover” and “Threeway” with Lady Gaga, Bolton’s Capt, with Jack Sparrow spoofing and Hamm’s Sergio the Sax Man. Bieber’s mentor Usher too joined in the party.
The clip may be intended to portray a sweet and celebrative look, but SNL had its own way of showing it as the trip down the memory lane was showcased with the men giving a gymnastic performance of self-pleasure. Check the video for a better understanding.
Justin Bieber surely has his thing going after his crazy underpants show at the Wango Tango show at California, this was a performance which made its mark.
