Andy Samberg - sings about his Daiquiri Girl

SNL Digital Short: Daiquiri Girl



Daiquiri Girl weaves an enchanted spell of drink and um, something else.

From 4/12/08



Enjoy!


Wow. They really had nothing this week. Bummer. They can do better than this. I know they can. They've got to put more stuff on the table before making a decision to go with something like this.

The funny thing is that these digital shorts have become so popular, that they went with this rather than cutting it like they would have in the past.

This might have actually been okay, if they would have concentrated on the song and the lyrics rather than the joke that it was so bad.

They might have been telling the truth and had lined up Gnarls to do something cool, and then he flaked, but, honestly, they should have had a backup plan like actually writing a full song with funny lyrics for this Daiquiri Girl concept. Or they could have just grabbed Ashton and ran around filming stuff with him. That would have worked fine.

I'm sure they could have ran around and sang songs to fans, improvised, and then edited it to something funny.

I was in the same boat as Kathleen (see her comment) until they ruined it with the text. Then it just came across as whining and blaming Gnarls for their own inability to have a good backup plan. I would have preferred it if they just concentrated on making the song itself funny with actual lyrics and silly gags like pouring the drinks on each other. They bailed out on this one, and it shows.

What gives? Usually they drop stinkers like these in the dress rehearsals. No one was laughing in the audience. Was the text on TV? It seems like no one laughed at all at the text, so that makes me wonder if they added it just for the Internet release.

Thanks!

Personally, I think it's so bad, that it's great.

I couldn't help but giggle during some of the Andy shots. He looked ridiculous.

Yeah, like the "Death by Chocolate" stuff that they did do.

Anonymous, I'm not a fan of Chocolate snuffing the old lady, but yeah, I'm sure they could have ran around and sang songs to fans, improvised, and then edited it to something funny.

Who is the girl in the video with Andy? Does anyone know? I am curious about that.

I was disappointed with this week's Lonely Island stuff too. but Death by Chocolate seemed like them and I found it hilarious.

I honestly thought that this digital short was hilarious. I loved it with the text and would not have been as funny without it.

It was great and I'm pretty sure that many people laughed.

I dug the short. Even the text. Although it would have been better without it.
I'm honestly waiting for them to do a response video to our "Ode to Andy Samberg"...whatever that might be...THAT would be hilarious.

Who is the girl?! it's 2009, no one can remain anonymous anymore...why can't I find any info ANYWHERE about her?

Anony,

It's still a mystery. =^(

Doesn't she look familiar though?
