"Lazy Sunday" SNL Digital Short
"Lazy Sunday", the second SNL Digital Short, aired on the December 17, 2005 episode of Saturday Night Live.
It features cast members Chris Parnell, an eight-year veteran of SNL, and Andy Samberg a first-year featured player with little previous screen time. In this music video, Parnell and Samberg perform a nerdcore hip hop song about seeing the film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and eating cupcakes from the Magnolia Bakery. The song was released on the album Incredibad, along with other digital shorts by The Lonely Island.
Samberg's fellow members of The Lonely Island were involved in the making of the film. Akiva Schaffer directed the clip and Jorma Taccone created the musical beat. All three plus Parnell wrote the script on December 12, 2005, and the music was recorded the following day. On December 15, a crew filmed the short in about five hours using the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in the Chelsea district of Manhattan as a stand-in for a movie theater. Taccone's wife's sister, Emily Heller, appears as a convenience store clerk.
Andy's Digital Short "Lazy Sunday" with Chris Parnell was downloaded over a million times the day after it was aired on Saturday Night Live.
