Saturday Night Live
Samberg’s other members of the Lonely Island, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, also stated in September 2005 that they would be joining the writing team of Saturday Night Live. Samberg would be joining the show as a featured player. Although he participated in a small number of live skits during his first year, he was in a large number of non-live sketches, such as parodies of advertisements and a variety of other video pieces. In the episode that aired on December 17, 2005, he and Chris Parnell had starring roles in the digital short titled “Lazy Sunday.”
The song was a hip hop performance by two New Yorkers who were on a mission to watch the movie The Chronicles of Narnia. Samberg received a huge amount of media and public exposure as a result of the short, which immediately became a craze on the Internet. Additionally, “Dick in a Box,” a duet that Samberg performed with Justin Timberlake, won a Creative Arts Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics. The song “Jizz in My Pants” that Samberg released not too long ago has brought him the same amount of fame.
His comedy troupe’s recent collaboration with T-Pain entitled “I’m on a Boat” has also proven to be popular. Since its first upload to YouTube on February 7, 2009, the music video has received more than 10.4 million views. On Saturday Night Live, Samberg is currently on his fourth season.
