The Lonely Island “Hugs” f/ Pharrell & Tatiana Maslany

Andy Samberg closed this season of SNL and, to coincide with a great show that featured an opening spoof on the Solange & Jay Z fight, Samberg and his Lonely Island trio premiered a new music video for “Hugs” off last year’s The Wack Album. The song’s guest star, Pharrell, appears in the video (continuing the current trend of everywhere) and Tatiana Maslany also plays a lead female. Plus, Maya Rudolph as Oprah. Hah! Per usual, The Lonely Island provides the laughs.

Even better: The Lonely Island debuted a new song and SNL Digital Short “When Will The Bass Drop” featuring Lil Jon. As you may suspect from the title, it’s Samberg & Co’s take on the EDM concert-going experience. And yes, it exaggerates all the stereotypes for even more laughs below.


SNL’s Jay Z & Solange Spoof

The Solange-Jay Z fight video… now with audio! (LMAO.)

Jay Pharoah and Sasheer Zamata play Jay & Solange, the bodyguard Julius by Kenan Thompson, and Maya Rudolph as ‘Yonce. SNL’s best cold opening in awhile. I don’t think I stopped laughing.

LOL @ this timing…

“Also, I’m sure ya’ll are wondering why B is not here tonight, I mean she’s off making another sexually aggressive music video about a monogamous relationship, hahaha.”

Jay Z & Beyonce “RUN” dropped tonight with a star-studded cast.
