Andy Samberg - Knows Jack Black (Awesometown - Fox Cut)

Update: We added the last 10 minutes to the play-play. Feel free to add your own notes in the comments, and we'll add it to the blog. Thanks!


We had not yet posted the classic 20-minute pilot episode of Awesometown that Andy did with the Lonely Island dudes. This is where our banner came from: the intro song to this pilot.

Jack Black opens it up! The Jack Black intro reminds me of the one Ben Stiller did to open his Heat Vision and Jack pilot which starred Black Jack:

It also reminds me of the intro the dudes did with Brook Shields:

From Jorma:
"In May 2005, The Dudes were hired to create a pilot for FOX. This cut includes live stage segments and laugh track in hopes of appealing to a broad audience."

The play-by-play:

01:11 - The dudes used this gag for Laser Cats on SNL.

01:35 - Andy annoys the other dudes by repeating his name. This is where our banner came from.

01:42 - Andy grabs a black guy.

01:57 - "If you've got a sandwich, come roll with me!"

02:02 - I love how Jorma holds a baby.

02:12 - Andy is scared.

03:40 - Andy dances with his fake mom.

04:20 - Andy dances with his real mom.

04:35 - Andy's sweet beard.

05:08 - Andy's Glirk character. Andy recreated this character on SNL in Dec 06 with Jack Black playing Jorma's role. I think Jack did a much better job. Andy was spectacular in both versions.

07:08 - Space Wine!!!

08:27 - Andy plays 20 questions.

08:40 - Andy knows what you're thinking.

08:56 - If you high-five Andy, expect an EXPLOSION!!!

09:08 - Kiv's strange transition to the next skit.

09:25 - Jorma climbs all over Andy. I don't know why they haven't done this for SNL. This is very similar to the "Andy popping on camera" and "Andy punching people before they eat" skits they did on SNL.

09:56 - Buff Andy gives advice: "More of a circular motion"

10:22 - The classic music video, "Just 2 Guyz"

11:11 - Who invited Steve? It's Andy!!!!

12:04 - They used this technique in Lazy Sunday.

12:30 - 10 seconds of Andy in the middle (Castaways)

13:22 - Andy takes suggestions for his new name.

13:33 - Andy stole Chez's outfit.

13:49 - How about Andy? Yeah, like it's short for Andrew. I think it's nice-sounding and appealing to women. - They used this gag in Dopplegangers for SNL. It ended with Andy getting shot.

14:29 - Andy judges some beards.

15:21 - Who does Frazzles' voice? Jorma?

16:00 - Sarah Chalke, from Scrubs

16:21 - Andy on Kiv's back

16:34 - Andy is Jesse Miller (too bad he's not in this episode of The Bu').

16:41 - Andy on the right, with a random girl on his back. Sarah's in the middle.

19:01 - Surprise! It's Andy!

19:04 - "He's dead!"

19:06 - With that bandana on, Andy looks like Rod Kimble. Nice use of a bat. The shooting theme at the end came back on SNL in the Doppleganger skit and in Dear Sister.

19:23 - Andy says goodbye.

19:29 - Andy's excited about the puppy.

19:36 - Smiling at the crane shot.

That's all the play-by-play! Did you see how many production companies were involved at the end? Wow.
