Andy Samberg in the SNL Digital Short - What Was that?

The winners of a Model UN competition address the General Assembly with Arcade Fire.

Hmmm. This is an interesting short here with Arcade Fire. Not all that funny. My guess is that it got cut after Dress Rehearsal, and so they immediately put it on the net. One way to find out if it makes the show tonight.

What did you think?

"what was that?" is a good title for the whole episode. not funny at all. the only kind of funny skit i thought was the one with denzel washington and chris pine. other than that just a bad episode.

Loved it. Andy effectively used humor as a rhetorical tool to send a powerful political message. Like "Iran So Far," this short wasn't laugh out loud funny. The United Nations is a wonderful organization that has greatly advanced the field of human rights. But the fact still remains that the international community is largely powerless to stop egregious human rights violations. The interests of one sovereign state, especially a powerful state, can derail an operation (e.g. China's refusal to deploy peacekeepers to Darfur because Sudan gave China oil discounts). During those breakdowns, the U.N. becomes nothing more than a self-congratulatory organization.

I love Andy most when he moves beyond vapid, bathroom-based humor that so many other comedians rely upon.

I think that this is by far the best digital short so far this season. I thought it was more so about making a point than being funny though, but it was still good. Although I agree with anony 1 & 2, the show as a whole is just not that funny this season. I thought that the episode with Jayne Lynch was the best so far this season & it was nowhere near superb, at least in comparison with other seasons.

The reason this short wasn't great is that Andy already did this idea (but way more subtle) with The Lonely Island as the song Everybody Dance. Well, more or less. "Global warming: hot and sexy! Poverty: exotic things!" Way funnier and an awesome song to boot.

Also, Arcade Fire suck.

No love for this skit? What is that? When he told the UN to "hit the showers" I nearly peed myself. Come on guys. This skit and the Blizzard Man spot stole the show for me.
