Andy Samberg and his shitty Digital Shorts!

Let me get this out of the way first… There have been a few, a precious few, Digital Shorts on Saturday Night Live that I liked. However, the running theme in most of the Digital Shorts I actually enjoy is a lack of Andy Samberg’s face. Sure, “Dick in a Box” and “Lazy Sunday” were OK the first 100 times I saw them online but it’s no monkey drinking his own pee. Now THAT’S a classic!

Did you happen to see Andy’s latest masterpiece, aired on 9/13/08, “Space Olympics?” It’s textbook Samberg. The short features all of his favorite comedy tools; generically 80’s song, purposely mundane lyrics, purposely cheesy graphics, severe camera mugging and the sweet sweet odor of desperation. This constant desire to create the next “Lazy Sunday” viral video hit has to be the only reason Lorne Michaels keeps this fuzzy turd on the show.

Other than his weekly Digital Shits (zing), Andy Samberg can be seen in the background of most skits delivering hilarious lines like “Hi, how can I help you” or “Hi, can I get you something to drink” and “Hi, you have a lovely house.” Seems to me his only role on SNL is to facilitate the other performers who actually have something to do in the scene. Try this drinking game, every time Andy Samberg delivers a funny line in a skit take a drink. Sadly this will not get you drunk.

P.S. Did anyone else notice ultra-douche Guy Fieri was in the front row of last night’s show? I did, so I pressed my ass against the TV screen. I showed you Guy!

Watch this and try to convince me that it’s funny.

    i used to watch SNL all the time when it was actually funny…the only reason i find andy helarious is because he looks a lot like my brother and i will never be able to shake that lol yeah i agree the short you showed us on here does suck its not funny at all…at least to me and i like andy. i like the spose video which i totally thought he was spose then i facebook’d him and andy is not spose he is just in the video? unless theres two sposes? lmao anyways but my whole question about the SNL thing is that doesn’t someone else write the actual sketches for the show and then they pick who does what or who acts and who doesn’t? im pretty sure the actors don’t write their own skits but i might be wrong? so if that is true then its really not andy’s fault that he gets such shitty jobs ya know? other than the fact they are implying he cannot act or he isn’t that funny. idk just wondering.

    Doons – Actually the only way to get on the air on SNL is to write your own material. It’s highly competitive and every performer is responsible for their own characters and skits. They work with writing partners and have to pitch their own skits every week. Andy works with two other writers, collectively known as Lonely Island, and together they churn out that crap. Yeah, imagine that, it takes 3 people to write Laser Cats!

    oh snap than he really just sucks i guess then lmao

    THANK YOU! I’ve been saying this ever since I heard his “Jizz in my Pants” song. How he fails at making dick jokes funny is beyond me. All I know is that the only thing keeping him afloat is his stupid douchebag hipster fanbase.

    I think SnL is the most pathetic show I have ever seen in my 49 yrs on this earth .Andy Samburg is probably the only talented actor I have seen on this show in recent years.All of you who hate Andy are probably Jimmy Fallon fans and Lazer Cats rocks.You see Andy has something called wit and talent.Its a quality that was required to get famous years ago.Now Tina Fey on the other hand fits the new requirement to be famous:No talent , no brain and uglier than a kick in the balls.

  6. You Just Made My List!on 21 Nov 2010 at 9:29 am

    LaLa – I would point out all the ways you are wrong about Samberg but your crazy comments about Tina Fey and your piss-poor punctuation pretty much already make my point.

  7. no sir, YOU just made MY liston 13 Jan 2011 at 10:13 am

    it seems all the old people dont like Samberg, i will never understand why… Andy Samberg is funny to the younger guys because he is relevant, all you old guys, like the douche face who wrote this article needs to just move aside, the world belongs to the young, go fuck yourself, and your OPINION is not correct, its wrong, youre wrong, and youre mama is wrong, yes i went there

  8. You Just Made My List!on 13 Jan 2011 at 4:33 pm

    I can see from your hilarious sense of humor why you are such a fan of that butthole. Grow up, jackass.

  9. mike-con 24 Jan 2011 at 4:01 am

    LaLa- you are obviously either one of the dumbest people on the planet or are just a little kid. Because Tina Fey is way funnier/smarter than Samberg she actually was so good they kept asking her to come back after she left and they also gave her a show. Jimmy Fallon is also much funnier than Samberg and not as bad to look at with Sambergs scary face. And Tina Fey and Fallon were hired way before Samberg. and just to let you in on a secret Samberg was hired because of who he was and because of his connections and was kept on SNL because of his many views on youtube from dumb kids like you.

    no sir-hi I am young and I dont like Samberg and many young people I know dont like him. its just seems that the only people who like Samberg are dumb people who dont know what real comedy is now go watch annoying oranges on youtube.

  10. mike-con 24 Jan 2011 at 4:15 am

    Samberg is just not funny he just keeps repeating the same dumb thing over and over again on his digital shorts. Its strange how he actually spends time writing these sketches and actually needs two other people to help him? Samberg is also really goofy looking so not only do we have to watch his bad attempt at humor but we also got to look at his the last few years SNL has been very bad and now its the worst its ever been. They need to fire everyone writers and cast and hire new people just like they did in the 80’s.

    anyways did anyone hear samberg was just fired from SNL

  11. chaazon 29 Jan 2011 at 11:25 pm

    I agree. I am a young guy and i think Samberg is the most unfunny person on the planet. I wish he would go away. SNL needs to fire the whole cast/writers etc. and start over. get rid of Lorne while you’re at it. If he can’t see that Samberg sucks, he’s lost it.

  12. lehon 03 Jun 2011 at 12:09 pm

    get a job

  13. You Just Made My List!on 03 Jun 2011 at 5:59 pm

    Yeah Andy Samberg, get a job!

  14. lehon 29 Jun 2011 at 8:37 pm

    He does have a job working for NBC, you do not.

  15. You Just Made My List!on 29 Jun 2011 at 10:37 pm

    Yeah, well Hitler had a job too! Wait, did he officially have a job? By the way, how do you know I don’t work at NBC? How do you know that I don’t work for Saturday Night Live?

  16. lehon 02 Jul 2011 at 6:38 pm

    Because you are on this lame blog all day complaining about celebrities. If you did have a job with NBC you would not have time for this. If you did work for SNL, your blog would most likely be interesting and funny, but its not.

  17. You Just Made My List!on 03 Jul 2011 at 9:39 am

    Perhaps I AM Andy Samberg, and even I don’t think I’m funny. Think about that, you silly pants head!

  18. Kidon 13 Aug 2011 at 11:08 pm

    Andy Samberg sucks!!! Every time I see him in ANY skit I fast forward to the next. It’s guys like him that make SNL what it is today……….. it sucks!!!

  19. Paulon 28 Aug 2011 at 2:02 am

    #leh, what is your point? Why are you reading the “lame blog?” did someone put a gun to your head to make you come here? Yeah. And I just found this site after seeing that steaming pile of shit “stumblin'” on SNL for the 5th time or whatever. If Elvis was still around a smoking bullet hole would be in the center of his 80″ Plasma right now. Enough already, Samberg, stick with your unfunny buttbuddies and do your funny little “white boy” rap albums, which btw, blow chunks too. Human beings are just getting dumber, first the success of the “Transformers” franchise of movies and Andy Samberg. “The horror, the horror, the horror…”

    You Just Made My List,
    Andy is pretty funny and he has a good job. He makes more money than any of us. I really don’t care if you don’t like him, I really don’t. Just please keep it to yourself. Other people like Andy and you should respect that. I respect that you do not like Andy, but I like him and you should respect the way I feel. Miss Samberg said how she felt about Andy and then you showed how unhappy you were. You put a comments section for a reason and then you get mad when people comment. It makes no sense, does it? How would you like if someone went online and posted nasty things about you? I don’t think that you would appreciate that. I don’t think that Andy appreciates the rude and nasty things that you have said about him. I am just saying. I don’t mean to be offensive in any sort of way. I just wanted to let you know how I felt and give you some feedback on the way you made me feel.

  21. You Just Made My List!on 19 Mar 2013 at 2:54 pm

    Girl – I can tell you are probably pretty young so I will keep this simple. In fact, let’s do this in list form:

    1) The amount of money one makes is not an indication of one’s talent or worth as a human being (see Donald Trump).

    2) You do care what I think otherwise you would not have left your comment.

    3) Why should I keep my opinions to myself when you are free to share yours?

    4) I do not need to “respect” that other people like Andy Samberg. Lot’s of people liked Hitler and somehow it doesn’t change my opinion of him.

    5) How would I like it if people went online and posted nasty things about me? Have you seen this site? There are at least (no kidding) 9,000 comments on here saying incredibly nasty things about me. The difference between you and me is that I don’t define myself by what other people think or think of me.

    Stop worrying about what other people think. Who cares if I hate something you love? Seriously, why do you care? I know there are things other people love but you don’t like. I know you say things suck. Why can’t I do the same thing?

  22. JTon 19 Mar 2013 at 8:26 pm

    I totally agree, Samberg sucks balls !! All he has is Justin Timberlake in his Digital shits to make him relevant. I don’t think I have ever seen his be funny and his songs are retarded. SNL is garbage most of the time anyways. Another one I dispise seeing on there is the black guy who looks like far albert. Also never funny. And while I am at it, Jimmy Fallon sucks too!!

  23. Girlon 20 Mar 2013 at 8:59 pm

    You Just Made My List,
    You are right about pretty much all of that. I never thought of it that way. I actually did not mean to put the thing about the money. That was a mistake. I 100% agree with you, money doesn’t rank you or define you. Secondly, I don’t care what you think about Andy, but I made it look like I care by putting a comment. With the sharing of you opinion thing, I didn’t mean not to share your opinion at all, I meant to say that maybe you should do it in a not so harsh way. I should have clearly stated that. Also, I didn’t mean to actually respect andy, I meant to respect the way that other people feel. Oh, and I only define myself on what my family and close friends think of me. I just have feelings (not saying that you don’t), but just because someone says something about me, doesn’t mean that I am going to believe it. So, You Just Made My List, I was wrong about some of the things that I posted and you made me look at them in a different way. I am truly sorry. Thank you for telling me about how I was wrong.
