Andy Samberg & Chris Parnell - Lazy Sunday (Narnia Rap)

After years of turning the show off minutes in (if watching it at all), I've watched every episode of Saturday Night Live this season. This year the hilarious "Internet famous" comedy troupe known as The Lonely Island were signed on as writers, with one of their members, Andy Samberg, signed as a feature performer. Gradually this season has gotten better and better, slightly weirder, with the cast really starting to click with the team's style. Last night Samberg and Chris Parnell put together an old school rap dedicated to going to see the Chronicles of Narnia called "Lazy Sunday", which in just 2 minutes has managed to already become known as the best SNL skit since Christopher Walken uttered the words "More Cowbell". Above is a link to the mp3, but you can find the link to the video of the skit here.

Hey, the link to the mp3 isn't working -- could you fix and repost it? I've been looking for the mp3 of it all day -- that was by far and away the funniest thing SNL's done since Ferrell left. Thanks!

Thanks for that. I still watch SNL week after week, and agree that it's making a comeback. This was hilarious. I love Parnell. This is his best hip hop since "My Date With Britney Spears"... "yo it's a west side night, and I'm feelin alright, got Britney in my pants and my gin and sprite.."

I think this year has been pretty disappointing (I hope Maya Rudolph comes back soon, and that Amy Poehler isn't in every sketch), but that was a great sketch.

Dunno why boingboing pointed people here for a WMV link, but I uploaded a WMV to you send it. Took me a while to convert it. So enjoy!

This strikes me as one of those things that wannabe-hip people WANT to like far more than they really do. Original, perhaps, but not particularly funny.

I loved this clip. It was the best thing I've seen on Saturday Night Live in as long as I can remember.

I'm trying to find the lyrics. I can get most of them, but not sure if I get them all correctly.

Is this parodying a specific hiphop song?
