About

Lazy Sunday is the second SNL digital short created by The Lonely Island featuring Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell. The music video sketch consists of the duo rapping about The Chronicles of Narnia (a reference to “Chronic,” a term for high-grade marijuana), cupcakes, movie trivia, and other mundane activities. After its upload to YouTube, the video went viral, and would later become infamous for its takedown from YouTube numerous times due to copyright infringement. To this day, mirrors of “Lazy Sunday” are removed from YouTube.

It is often credited as a catalyst towards YouTube’s success as the most popular video-sharing website on the internet (and more specifically, why Google bought YouTube for 1.65 billion dollars). It is also said to have revived interest in Saturday Night Live.

Upload to YouTube


[via Hitwise]

On December 17, 2005, late night comedy TV show Saturday Night Live aired their second digital short ever, entitled “Lazy Sunday.”

One mirror of Lazy Sunday [defunct link] garnered at least 5 million views, and received 1.2 million of those views in less than a week. Overall, considering the multiple copies of the video that were uploaded to YouTube, it eventually gained over 7 million views before being taken down by NBC in early 2006. “Lazy Sunday” was still hosted on the official Saturday Night Live website, but was criticized for only being embeddable on Windows computers.

Lyrics

Lazy Sunday, wake up in the late afternoon.
Call Parnell just to see how hes doin.
Hello?
What up, Parns?
Yo Samberg, whats crackin?
You thinking what Im thinkin?
NARNIA.
Man, its happenin.
But first my hunger pains are stickin like duct tape.
Lets hit up Magnolia and mack on some cupcakes.
No doubt that bakerys got all da bomb frostins.
I love those cupcakes like McAdams loves Gosling.
Two, no six, no twelve, BAKERS DOZEN.
I told you that Im crazy for these cupcakes, cousin.
Yo, wheres the movie playin?
Upper west side, dude.
Well, lets hit up Yahoo Maps to find the dopest route.
I prefer Map Quest.
Thats a good one, too.
Google Maps is the best.
True that.
DOUBLE TRUE.
68th and Broadway.
Step on it, sucka.
What you wanna do, Chris?
SNACK ATTACK, MOTHERFUCKER
Its the Chronic (what?)
Cles of Narnia
Yes, the Chronic (what?)
Cles of Narnia
We love that Chronic (what?)
Cles of Narnia
Pass that Chronic (what?)
Cles of Narnia
Yo, stop at the deli.
The theaters over-priced.
Youve got the backpack?
Gonna pack it up nice.
Dont want security to get suspicious.
Mr. Pibb and Red Vines equals CRAZY DELICIOUS!
Ill reach in my pocket, pull out some dough.
Girl actin like she never seen a $10 before.
Its all about the Hamiltons, baby.
Throw the snacks in a bag and Im ghost like Swayze.
Roll up to the theater.
Ticket buying, what were handlin.
You can call us Aaron Burr.
From the way were droppin Hamiltons.
Now parked in our seats.
Movie trivias the illest.
Which Friends alum starred in films with Bruce Willis?
We answered so fast it was scary
Everyone stared in awe when we screamed Matthew Perry.
Now quiet in the theater or its gonna get tragic.
Were bout to get taken to a dream world of magic with
the Chronic (what?)
Cles of Narnia
Yes, the Chronic (what?)
Cles of Narnia
We love that Chronic (what?)
Cles of Narnia
Pass that Chronic (what?)
Cles of Narnia
