Space Olympics 3022
The Olympics are going strong, and here's a throwback to the 2008 games. It's an SNL Digital Short by Andy Samberg, envisioning when the Olympics go into space except the competition is being run by an incompetent media shill who has all the gloss but none of the financial acumen to pull it off. Great song by Samberg and his Lonely Island cohorts, with a cameo by Michael Phelps, fresh off his eight medal performance that year. One TVWW friend mentioned, "it's like handing a ten-year-old a video camera." True enough. Samberg will be missed next season on SNL. –EG
