Saturday Night Live: 5/10/08 - Shia LeBeouf
While looking for Andy videos, we found several videos from this week's episode that do not feature Andy Samberg.
So sit back and enjoy videos from what I think was the most well rounded episode of Saturday Night Live that I've seen for the past few years. Each skit was funny. While the Digital Short wasn't the best, it was still funny, and even the commercials between Andy and Shia were so funny that they should have shown them on the show as well.
You can watch all the videos here without waiting for advertisements.
Message from Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton gives her take on the Democratic nomination
This video is pretty funny. It's definitely the funniest political video I've seen them do for the last few seasons, and Amy pulled it off by herself. Great job!
Interestingly, there is a comment from someone who claims to be Amy Poehler (and sounds an awful lot like what she'd say, except maybe for "whacked"):
"Anyone who doesn't understand that this is a satire on the mass media is seriously whacked! They will say anything to sell a media blurb, but we thought it would be fun to show the very funny twisted distortion of the truth they propagate. So any of you Hillary, Obama, or McCain fans out there, sorry to disappoint you, but this is about the mass media, SNL is nonpartisan. I hope you enjoyed it! :) Stay tuned for next week..."
Shia LaBeouf Monologue
Shia LaBeouf answers questions about the latest Indiana Jones movie
This is what I think is Darrell Hammond's only appearance. He appears as Sean Connery. Classic stuff.
Suze has some amazing, creative, money tips!
The collar gag just about killed me. =^)
Girls Trying on Clothes
A mom and her daughters adopt the New York funky-style, no, yes!
I didn't find this one funny. Other people did, but I think this was the only unfunny skit from the episode. I guess the humor here was just seeing Shia in drag.
It's a Match
Murder visits the set of It's a Match!
The SNL players are pretty much not funny here, but Shia makes this skit unbelievably great!!!
This joke reminds me of the enormously popular David Blaine Street Magic series on YouTube. It's a parody sketch of David Blaine done in the style of a digital short:
Weekend Update: Part 1
Weekend Update with Grand Theft Auto, Liberty City Residents, Vlad and Niko
We also some nice gags at the beginning, and Seth coming on to Amy at the end.
Weekend Update: Part 2
Weekend Update with French Def Jam Comedian, Jean K. Jean
And here are the Andy Samberg skits. I wanted to include all the skits because this episode was so good. You've got to see all the skits together to appreciate how well rounded this episode was.
MacGruber: Father and Son
Explosive revelations tear apart the bond of family
Warning: Sexual jokes abound.
Vinny Talks: Shia LaBeouf
Vinny Vedecci sits down with Shia LaBeouf on Italian TV
Andy flips the switch a little too late.
He Likes You
Room full of guys with the same thing on their mind
My favorite skit from this episode. Did Andy write this? It totally seems like his humor, especially the singing.
3 shoplifters get a graphic, yet weirdly familiar, warning from ex-con Macintosh
SNL Digital Short: The Best Look in the World
Dress shirt, black socks, no pants...
