Andy Samberg Taps The Lonely Island And Pharrell For ‘SNL’ Digital Shorts

In his opening monologue as host of last night’s (May 17) “Saturday Night Live” episode, Andy Samberg recounted that he had appeared in 100 Digital Shorts, and approximately six live sketches. The guy who brought us “D**k In A Box” and “Lazy Sunday” delivered yet again when he treated the audience with not one, but two new Digital Shorts on the show’s season finale.

First up, Samberg appeared as a raving EDM DJ, perched high atop the elevated booth where he sits in front of a computer pumping out jams to the moshing crowd below. Davvincii, as he is called, fist pumps and finger points his way around, steering clear of pressing the bright red BASS button, leaving the ravers to wonder when the bass will drop. When Davvincii does drop the bass, Lil Jon appears to “get turned up to death.”

Call it a hunch, but we had a feeling that Samberg and his crew, The Lonely Island, were on the verge of releasing some new tunes. In the second Digital Short of the night Samberg and The Lonely Island boys rap about the non-exclusivity of giving out hugs. “You think we’re an item just because I gave you a hug last night? Trick, you better think again” sings Samberg. Pharrell jumps in on the fun, advising “Don’t catch feelings/It ain’t love/They’re just the kings of giving out hugs.”
