The 15 Greatest SNL Digital Shorts
This weekend wraps another season of Saturday Night Live. As the rumors of the departure of Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudekis and Andy Samberg increase, there’s a very good chance we saw the 100th and final episode of the SNL Digital Shorts.
In December of 2005, “Lettuce” first aired featuring Samberg and Will Forte. It wasn’t that great a bit but a week later, “Lazy Sunday” would usher Saturday Night Live into the modern era. Primed with clips that were perfect for sharing in the burgeoning social media age. Samberg along with Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, also known as The Lonely Island are the acting/writing/directing force behind nearly all of the shorts. Spawning them TV, internet, and music infamy.
So now is the time to take a look back at 15 of our favorite SNL Digital Shorts. Just try to count all of the celebrities that made cameos.
