Andy Samberg - Is Gay (Iran So Far)

This is a Saturday Night Live skit featuring Andy Samberg singing a gay love song to Iran leader Mahmoud after he came to New York. Part political satire and part cultural silliness. It also features Fred Armisen as Mahmoud, Adam Levine (lead singer of Maroon 5), and a special appearance by Jake Gyllenhaal.

UPDATE: We added more videos of this, the original speech on TV, and lyrics! We gave you the hookup!!!

NOTE from Chez of The Lonely Island: NBC has pulled the clip out of fear of being sued by Aphex Twin's label's lawyers (clear your samples next time Jorm! That's hip hop ya'll!!!) They are working on getting the sample cleared.

The good news is that this is the Interweb, so you'll find a ton of links below.

"Andy Samberg and Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad together at last, in this SNL Digital Short with Adam Levine (Maroon 5)"

BONUS
And here's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in action, talking about there being no gays in Iran:




The lyrics:


They say true love comes only once in a lifetime,
and even though we’re from opposite ends of the earth,
my heart tells me you’re the one for me.
Mahmoud

I remember when it started, saw you on the news
you were hating gays
I was eating food.
I was feeling you, and even though I disagreed with almost everything you said
you aint wrong to me, so strong to me, you belong to me.
Like a very hairy Jake Gyllenhaal to me.

(Mahmoud, you make) my heart beat rihgt out of my chest.
My mind says no but my body says yes.
Nuclear threat. The only threat I see,
Is the threat of you not coming home with me.

Our love for each other’s like when atoms collide.
Can’t express how I feel,
And yo Adam let’s ride.

Adam Levine: And Iran, Iran so far away,
Is you're home, but in my heart you'll stay.

He ran, for the president of Iran (Adam: Iran).
We ran together to a tropical island (Adam: island).

My man, Mahmoud, is known for violence (Adam: violence), smilin'.
If he can still do it then I can.

They call you weasel. They say your methods are medieval.
You can play the Jews. I can be your Jim Caviezel (Adam: Caviezel).

S&M, nestlin', we be wrestlin'
You can be the port that I put my vessel in.

So I try to mute the TV (Adam: Shh),
But you can still see me.
With your sleepy brown eyes, butter pecan thighs,
And your hairy butt. Yeah.

Adam: And Iran, I ran so far away.
Come home, and in my arms you'll stay.
I used to look at the stars and dream.
Around the world seems hard we're seeing,
And a twinkle in your eyes, Mahmoud.

Talk smooth to me,
Without a tie.
Your pants high waisted, damn so fly.

We can take a trip to the animal zoo,
And laugh at all the funny things that animals do.
Like Eugene, You got me straight trippin', boo.
I hope you look at my eyes and say, "I'm trippin' too."
You say Iran don't have a bomb, but they already do.
You should know it by now, it's you.

Adam: And I ran, I ran so far away.
Because you're home, but in my heart you'll stay.

I'm crazy for this one, Mahmoud.
You can deny the hollocaust all you want,
But you can't deny that there's something between us.

I know you say there's no gays in Iran,
But you're in New York now, baby!
So time to stop hiding,
And start living.

One.

Jake Gyllenhaal (hand gesture): Two





Alright. I know I messed up in there with the lyrics. So write a "talkback" if you have a correction! Thanks!



Enjoy!

I think I got the tricky parts :)

They say true love comes only once in a lifetime
and even though we’re from opposite ends of the earth,
my heart tells me you’re the one for me.

I know you say there’s no gays in Iran

Great. Thanks! I think on your last paragraph he says "I'm crazy for this one, Mahmoud."

Thanks again!
