Andy Samberg returns to ‘SNL’ – for one night, anyway

Was that a digital short on ‘SNL’ last night?

Why, yes it was.

In what was a reunion show of sorts, former ‘SNL’ star Andy Samberg and his Lonely Island pals (responsible for gems like D—k in a Box, Ji—in My Pants, and I’m on a Boat) returned for one night with a second digital short featuring host Adam Levine of Maroon 5.

And why not? The collaboration between TLI and Levine has been successful in the past. Their 2007 song ‘Iran So Far,’ where Levine sings the hook of a love ballad for Iran president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is considered an ‘SNL’ classic.

Did they recapture some of that magic last night?

Well, some of it anyway.

Have a look at The Lonely Island-Levine project Part II called YOLO (that annoying acronym that means ‘You Only Live Once’) featuring Kendrick Lamar.

In it, Samberg, and Lonely Island pals Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer rap about how to lead an overly cautious, paranoid and risk-free life. Tips include protecting your ears at concerts, building a bomb shelter with titanium walls, and burying money in the backyard like a beagle. Levine, just like last time, sings the sweet hook.
