"Laser Cats!" SNL Digital Short

Hader and Samberg pitch to SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels their new ultra low-budget Digital Short, Laser Cats!

The short within the short features the fallout of a nuclear war, in which cats can shoot lasers from their mouths and thus be used as weapons. Hader and Samberg, shooting the short in the SNL offices and playing the heroes, Nitro and Admiral Spaceship, have to rescue a princess (Lindsay Lohan, who is not in on the joke and gets replaced by Rachel Dratch).

Laser Cats was a short video made for broadcast during Saturday Night Live i.e. it was not performed live during the show. It is one of the videos known as SNL Digital Shorts, so called because they are shot using commercial grade digital video cameras.
