'Saturday Night Live': Thinking outside the 'Box'

Posted on

I’m excited for the return of SNL this weekend, and not just because THE SHINS are playing — I think the show was picking up some serious creative momentum before the holidays, and I want to see if they can keep it up.

Of course, the standout moment for SNL in 2006 was “D–k in a Box,” or, as it is more commonly known in my household, “Thank God, now we can stop talking about ‘Lazy Sunday.'”  So, as a bit of a mental and emotional warm-up for this weekend’s 2007 premiere, I trotted over to YouTube and rounded up some of the “D–k in a Box” knock-offs. I encourage you to watch them, sit for a moment in quiet contemplation, and once again appreciate that while SNL sometimes sucks, at least it doesn’t suck this badly.

Wait. It suddenly occurs to me that this might all be NSFW. Beware the Net nanny!
