I’ve started off with a fairly basic SNL lesson that should be a review for most of you. Chris Farley’s Motivational Speaker clip from 1993 is a classic and should serve as a warm-up exercise. Now I’m going to shift gears to a different segment of the course entitled:
Lesson 2: Commercial Parodies
“HiberNol” Season 18 (1992-93)
“Old Glory Robot Insurance” Season 21 (1995-96)
“Oops I crapped my pants” Season 24 (1998-99)
“Mom Jeans” Season 28 (2002-03)
Saturday Night Live is dying. It’s dying a slow, horrible death and we all know it. We watch it for Andy Samberg’s digital shorts, that’s it.
That is why I’m introducing a new segment on this blog entitled SNL 101. This is where I will post videos of old Saturday Night Live segments that I think everyone should know and love as much as I do. If you’ve already seen these videos, I will not apologize, but rather commend you for your superior knowledge of the show.
