Andy Samberg is One Take Tony (SNL)

You may recall the work of Humphrey Bogart, Harry Belafonte, and Fred Astaire, but you probably don't remember One-Take Tony.

So this is Andy's largest offering this week (with only two). Andy often takes it easy for a week after a big release like a musical digital short (but if the guest host demands Andy, then he's on, so Ed Helms probably wasn't doing a ton of demanding who to work with).

Anyway, the end result is just the two skits (this one and "Song Memories").

I hope Andy pulls out all the stops for Justin Timberlake in the season finale next week. (AKA a musical digital short.)

I'm not sure if they'll do a third version of the characters from Junk in a Box and Mother Lover, but we'll see. It obviously won't be from the Turtleneck and Chain album (since there is no Timberlake song on it other than Mother Lover).

That also makes me wonder if Andy will turn any other Turtleneck and Chain songs into digital shorts (aka music videos). They could release them this summer on Jimmy Fallon's Late Night show, or they could wait for next season of SNL (or both). There are a lot of songs on that album that deserve music videos, and they only did three on SNL so far (I Just Had Sex, The Creep, and Jack Sparrow). Plus We're Back on Jimmy Fallon.

- What did you think of the episode of SNL this week?

- Do you think Justin Timberlake will do a music video with Andy next week? What will it be?

- Will TLI make more digital shorts from Turtleneck and Chain? Will they be on Jimmy Fallon, SNL, or both?

- Will Andy and Akiva even be back on SNL next season?

Leave any comments with your thoughts!

I dont think andy and kiv will be back. If the rumours are true Kiv just had a baby so probably doesn't want such a time demanding schedule and Andys getting LOADS of movie offers and other deals (like shark week) - I think it's a good time for him to leave!

"There are a lot of songs on that album that deserve music videos, and they only did three so far (I Just Had Sex, The Creep, and Jack Sparrow)."

They've done 4 this year! You forgot We're Back which didn't air as a SNL DS. In total T&C has 7 tracks with videos:

We’re Back!
I Just Had Sex [ft. Akon]
Jack Sparrow [ft. Michael Bolton]
Shy Ronnie 2: Ronnie & Clyde [ft. Rihanna]
Motherlover [ft. Justin Timberlake]
The Creep [ft. Nicki Minaj & John Waters]
Threw It on the Ground

Leaving 12 tracks without:

Attracted to Us [ft. Beck]
My Mic (Interlude)
Turtleneck & Chain [ft. Snoop Dogg]
Trouble on Dookie Island
Falcor vs. Atreyu (Classy Skit #1)
Watch Me Do Me (Classy Skit #2)
After Party [ft. Santigold]
No Homo
No Homo Outro

And they won't do videos for My Mic, Falcor vs. Atreyu, Watch Me Do Me and No Homo Outro. If any they might do videos for: Japan, After Party or No Homo IMO.

I forgot to add in Rocky when Andy sings "a suckerpunch left and a sucker punch right" it really reminds me of something else Andy's done but I can't for the life of me think what! Can anyone shed any light?

Anony 4 & 5 (I think you're the same),

Yeah, I'm trying to forget "We're Back," but that's fair. And it's also similar to how they did a fourth video last time, "We Like Sportz," and that one was released on Web only (not on SNL). That one was much better though.

I think Attracted to Us, Rocky, Turtleneck & Chain all would make great music videos, and I agree with you about Japan. After Party seems a little stale, but it might work (seems like a sequel to Ji$$ in my Pants). No Homo is funny but then it goes straight to disgusting and stays there.

Definitely a lot more worthy of music videos than last album (probably more original, non-SNL songs too).
