Last night’s Saturday Night Live
may have had Usher
fans screaming and climaxing, but those of us who love their Digital Shorts also experienced a climactic moment when many of the series’ best video stars returned for the 100th Digital Short. As you’d expected, this was an unparalleled extravaganza of nuttiness, beginning with a tuxedo-clad Justin Bieber
wholesomely getting jazzed about the celebration — interrupted by suggestion of a very un
wholesome activity everyone intends to do to themselves. (So as not to tarnish his mom-friendly image too greatly, the Biebs acts appropriately disgusted.)
Also making appearances in the celeb-filled vid are Will Ferrell, Jon Hamm, Michael Bolton, and musical guest Usher, plus Justin Timberlake reprising his “Dick in a Box” persona. Perhaps best of all, Oscar-winner Natalie Portman adds a new verse to her hilarious bad-ass rap from one of the earliest SNL shorts. And while this one may not be quite as memorable ultimately as so many of those classic videos, it certainly has motivated us to go back and watch our favorites.
