Andy Samberg turns into a dolphin for sex and gave Kristen Wiig crabs (SNL's Greek gods)

Alas, there's no Digital Short this week. This is very disappointing, since we were hoping for a reunion song with Andy Samberg and Adam Levine, since their last venture was the hit "Iran So Far", and because Andy has given us three non-musical digital shorts (Stomp, V-Necks, and Drake Interviews), which suggests they might not have a strong year for musical digital shorts, and ultimately that's what people want. (Their success with musical digital shorts seems dependent on whether they made an album the previous summer; last year's shorts from the album were I Just Had Sex, The Creep, and Jack Sparrow, in addition to songs not originally intended for the album, Shy Ronnie 2 and 3-Way (Golden Rule).) So hopefully the dudes are thinking up some songs.

Anyway... let's talk about this hilarious and witty sketch...

Sketch - Greek Gods

Charlie Day ... Dionysus
Adam Levine ... Yanni
Fred Armisen ... Klaus
Vanessa Bayer ... Artemis
Paul Brittain ... Hermes
Abby Elliott ... Aphrodite
Bill Hader ... Hades
Taran Killam ... Ares
Bobby Moynihan ... Demeter
Nasim Pedrad ... Athena
Jay Pharoah ... Apollo
Andy Samberg ... Poseidon
Jason Sudeikis ... Zeus
Kenan Thompson ... Eros
Kristen Wiig ... Hera

Zeus summons the gods to figure out the financial crisis in Greece.

Andy has a large part, even though he's only one of 15 characters. Jason Sudeikis has the largest part (as Zeus), but Andy's gag comes back because he's the god who turns into a dolphin when making love.

All are on their game here. Bobby Moynihan is pretty funny as the god of harvest (I think the god of harvest should have been put on the spot more for economic responsibility), Jay Pharoah puts on some white makeup for a funny gag as Apollo, and Kristen Wiig makes a great bitter wife, who happens to have gotten crabs from making love with Andy Samberg's Poseidon.
