SNL Is Funny Sometimes: Lazy Sunday 2
Samberg references the original with a few jokes, saying he's still "waiting on a check from YouTube" and has this to say in regards to leaving 'SNL': "On these New York streets I hone my fake rap penmanship / That’s how it began, and that’s how I’m-a finish it.”
"Lazy Sunday" is a song and short video by American comedy troupe The Lonely Island. It was released on December 17, 2005 when it was broadcast on Saturday Night Live as their second Digital Short.
The song was written by Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell, as well as Lonely Island members Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, in one night. They recorded the following night in the comedy troupe's office and shot the music video around Manhattan two days later using a borrowed camera. After being quickly mixed and edited by Schaffer, the short was approved for broadcast on the next evening's telecast of Saturday Night Live by producer Lorne Michaels.
