SNL Digital Short.png

An SNL Digital Short is a short comedic or musical video segment created for airing on NBC's Saturday Night Live.

Most Digital Shorts are produced by The Lonely Island and written by Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone and Andy Samberg in collaboration with SNL hosts and cast members. The segments were originally recorded with consumer grade digital video cameras and edited on personal computers. It is usual for the episode's hosts and musical guests (the latter on rarer occasions) to take part in the episode's short, and several shorts have included celebrity cameos.

The shorts generally take fewer than five days to complete. Schaffer has directed all the shorts and Taccone along with his brother, Asa, have produced music as necessary. So far SNL has aired 46 digital shorts, eight of which are performed by The Lonely Island and eleven of which are the multiple part MacGruber sketches. Many of the musical shorts were remastered and released in The Lonely Island's album, Incredibad, or created specifically for the album and then featured in shorts during the 2008-2009 season.

With the departure of Samberg in 2012, it has been speculated that the era of the explicit SNL Digital Short is over, although a Digital Short was released on January 26, 2013.

Akiva Schaffer
Jorma Taccone[9]
Akiva Schaffer[9] April 15, 2006 Hader and Samberg pitch to SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels their new ultra low-budget Digital Short, Laser Cats!

Armisen appears as the auctioneer, Wilson as the interviewer, Hader and Wiig as Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood respectively (they appear tied to a post with their eyes closed while everyone else is dying after seeing the painting, parodying the ending of Raiders of the Lost Ark).
