Andy Samberg - Is T Shane (Deep Dish videos)

Here's a nice compilation of videos where Andy Samberg plays T Shane on Deep Dish, a Saturday Night Live series of sketches. These are all from the 06-07 season.

Matthew Fox doesn't quite get started:

- I think it's a Char sound

DJ Quality winks:

- T Shane comes to Dynasty's rescue and tries to fight at the end

Andy has a Paris joke and screams at Zach Braff's scary look:

Maya's Tiny Moves:

- What are we, 1991?

Andy claps at the end as Kristen is tired:

And here's Andy at the beginning of the same song:

Andy claps at the end because Amy wants cologne:

He's at the beginning as Maya wears this skit out:

Andy Samberg - Hangs with Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, and Kevin James

It's pretty amazing that Adam Samberg is shot with Andy Sandler, Will Ferrell, and Kevin James (name joke intended). It's got to be an honor to be grouped together with them for a photo.

It's a picture of Samberg with Kevin James, Will Ferrell, and Adam Sandler from the MTV movie awards in 2007.

Some think Samberg doesn't look excited enough in this pic (as he should be), but I think he'll just learn to smile more like the other dudes are.

Bonus pics from the 2007 MTV Movie Awards...

With Shia LaBeouf:

With Sarah Silverman:

Andy Samberg - Refuses to Play the Hanukkah Song

Andy Samberg is on this Michael Showalter Show, and he gets confused for Adam Sandler.

Warning! This is pretty crass. I certainly hope this stuff isn't true. That said, Andy's ability to act serious amidst stupidity is pretty well tuned.

Andy Samberg tells their story in this TV interview in San Diego.

"I got a checklist of all my old teachers, and we just go there really, really late at night and knock on their doors. 'Hey, remember us? Thanks for detention!'" Andy is hilarious.

Andy Samberg - Video Review of Hot Rod

This was a pretty positive video review of Hot Rod.

From the vid:
"Vegas Film Critic, Jeffrey K. Howard, reviews the comedy, 'Hot Rod.'"


And here's a hater reviewing it. It's interesting that he never gives a reason. He just goes on about how he hates it:

Andy Samberg - Cried during Love Story (David Letterman)

Andy Samberg is on the Late Show with David Letterman, dated 7/30/07

Andy cried during Love Story, talks about Junk in a Box, and about playing Daddy Warbucks.

The crowd claps for his crying. They were also quite expressive for the stunt clip at the end. Strange.

Andy Samberg on Jimmy Kimmel 8/03/07.

This clip tells a few of Andy's gags when he was auditioning for Saturday Night Live: (1) Alan Rickman, "McClane" and (2) Swedish Chef.

They actually made Andy's Swedish Chef bit into an SNL skit.
Here it is:

Andy Samberg - US Army Narnia Rap

Last year a few members of the US Army did their version of the Andy Samberg Narnia Rap.

Click here to see the original Lazy Sunday music video.

Here is the US Army version.

"The Middle East response to the Midwest response "Lazy Muncie", to the West Coast response "Lazy Monday" to SNL's "Lazy Sunday"."

And, of course, somebody had to smack back with an Osama version.

"Not to be outdone by Sunday, Monday, Muncie, or Ramadi, it's Osama's latest video release."

Andy Samberg - Talks about Kirsten Dunst & does a James Blunt impression

This is Hooman on the Street, an Internet show that is apparently connected to CW somehow.

Lots of good stuff in this interview with Andy Samberg, including:

- James Blunt impressions (wait for the end for an encore)

- Ultimate Punch

- Makes fun of names

- Some dirt on his relationship with Kirsten Dunst

- And his inspiration to write Junk in a Box with Justin Timberlake

Andy Samberg - Gives comedy advice

Here Andy Samberg tells a guy that the way to break into comedy is to "hone your craft." He singles out stand-up comedy here and says to get into nightclubs whenever possible.

"Arthur from Rare Footage Films calls the Kidd Kraddick in the Morning Radio Show. The guest on the show is Andy Samberg from SNL. He was in town promoting his new movie called Hot Rod."

Andy Samberg - Signs some posters

Apparently Andy Samberg has been doing stunts for Transformers and Die Hard. He's also watched a lot of Evil Kineval videos.

"Andy Samberg does a poster signing at UC Berkeley to promote his movie Hot Rod."

Andy Samberg - Stands there and takes the compliments

Wow. This really makes me want to see the movie. This is a pretty phenominal testimony from the two radio guys.

In this interview with Andy Samberg and The Lonely Island, the dudes say they'll do future radio tours, but I think this has been pretty grueling for them. Plus, it really didn't seem to do much good. The movie still tanked with only $8 million made.

They wish BJ's daughter a happy birthday.

"Today's video blog features our genuine love-fest for the movie Hot Rod, and it's masterminds, SNL's: Andy Samberg, Akiva Shaffer, and Jorma Taccone--great guys btw. Did I just write BTW?? WTF? Go see it when it comes out on August 3rd. Towards the end, BJ convinces them to wish his daughter a happy 16th birthday."

Andy Samberg - Answers some questions (this is hilarious)

Here is Andy Samberg.

The Lonely Island is the ultimate sandwich. Jorma would give a ninja climedia. Andy gives credit to Kevin Bacon. Andy promises to sing Roy Rules.

Andy Samberg and The Lonely Island are answering questions at Metreon in San Francisco, apparently after screening their Hot Rod movie.

"Andy, Akiva and Jorma answer some questions until my camera runs out of memory (sorry! I had other videos and pix on there!)"

Here's the ninja question from another perspective:

"my friend's question was, "what advice would you give an aspiring ninja?" in reference to The 'Bu... but they totally didn't get it. but gave a great answer anyways.
sorry it's kinda dark"


TheAnimationEmpire update:

Here's another older video. It's our follow up to our YouTube-featured video. It's a 3D animation called Fruits VS Bugs: Episode 2.

It picks up where this one left off (this one has over 900,000 views). Here is Fruits VS Bugs: Episode 1.

Andy Samberg - Interviewed by Adam Sandler

This is a temporary deal, because I'm sure Interview will take this off their site, but it is still phenominal so it needs to be blogged. Adam Sandler interviews Andy Samberg.

Take a listen to their phone conversation which was recorded for Interview magazine.

Click their Flash audio player called "15 minutes of Interview voices." Then skip up to chapter 5. Listen to Adam Sandler talk to Andy Samberg for 2.5 minutes. They mostly talk about Andy getting sucked into a computer like Lawnmower Man.

Andy Samberg - Hot Rod Movie Reviews

Now that the movie Hot Rod has launched, there are a ton of movie reviews out there.

Here you go! Smack destiny in the face!

"Hot Rod, is a comedy powered by the twin turbines of over-baked emotion and adolescent alienation."

"Its absolute lack of structure, combined with the chumminess of the parties involved, leads inevitably to a mix of inspired and dead-in-the-water moments. But Samberg, part puppyish kid and part chiseled leading man, is fun to watch."

"But your reaction to the film will depend on how much of Rod's blindsided cluelessness you can take as he crashes into yet another inanimate object that leaves him motionless at the side of a road."

Roger Ebert: "The movie is funny because it is sincere."

"...essentially a series of explosions woven loosely around a stream of '80s pop culture references.",0,4228936.story?coll=mmx-movies_top_heds

Andy Samberg likes to party. Here's a full clip of that scene from Hot Rod.

Andy Samberg - Kills Harry Potter (You Know Who gets jealous)

How misleading could you get? I don't know, but the title is pretty misleading.

I was going to put the name Voldemor... (I discluded the "t" from his name) in the title, but I didn't want to get surrounded by Death Eaters.

Check out this almost perfectly faithful recreation of the Andy Samberg sketch, Dear Sister, played by Harry Potter and friends.

"We Put a "Harry Potter" spin on the classic Dear Sister SNL skit. We hope you enjoy what we think is the most complete parody of a parody around. NOTICE: If you spam this video with any porno webcam sites or spoil any of the books, you get yourself a one way ticket to get kicked in the AZZkaban."

The Harry Potter / Dear Sister silliness continues with these clips from Harry Potter 4:


TheAnimationEmpire update:

We wanted to toss out this older video called Following Directions Part 2. Check out Ed's antics as he follows directions (sort of).

Andy Samberg - Puts oil on his testicles (on the Conan show)

Here's a blog that, um, blogged it:

Andy Samberg - Likes Jelly Beans
