2015 is the 10 year anniversary of the SNL digital short.
Lazy Sunday was the first. The iconic video was shot in days, on a low-quality borrowed camera. The group spend the night before the show editing it for broadcast, and freaking out.
Lazy Sunday made Youtube, and has been called the video that launched viral videos, with millions of views before it was pulled.
But if you look closely, you can just see a bunch of guys who nobody knew, filming, with no permits and having fun.
Samberg and Parnell walk up to a clerk who has no idea what’s going on..
And start rapping together.
But blink, and you’ll miss it, when they catch her smiling at the camera…
… as Samberg and Parnell ham it up in front of her !
Samberg said the best thing about the video was that, because it was pre-taped, they had no idea how the audience would react to it. When you hear the audience laughing, on the video, you’re hearing the same sounds that the cast heard as they waited- the reaction that told Samberg et. al that they had a hit.
Ash your photo opp is almost here! What pose are you doing, what are you wearing, how excited are you??!
Yeah, it’s a little less than three weeks away! I’m so excited and also nervous? Which is silly, because it’s gonna go by so fast.
I’m not sure about a pose for any of the pictures yet. Like I know most people hug Andy, but I’m so short, that’s gonna look awkward, so idk I’ve resigned that that picture is gonna look stupid, lmao. I do know that I’ll be wearing a denim shirt and I’m currently trying to fade my black jeans into gray ones. 😄 But that’s about all I have together at this point.
thank u for filling my dash w fob stuff i used to be super into them but i haven't listened in a minute hah. also i'm 5'8 so i relate to the height thing :l i have a longer torso too so don't even get the long leg thing going for me.
Omg welc! I thought that they would be taller but I saw all these posts about how little they were and I thought “oh they’re probably just like ya’ know 5'8 to 5'11 ish bc some people consider that really short for guys but then OH MY GOD ANDY IS SO SHORT (5'5 and adorable) BUT OH MY GOD
