Andy Samberg spoofs Pearl Jam for Spirit Awards non-memoriam
The 32nd annual Film Independent Spirit Awards decided to honor the living on Saturday afternoon, dispensing with the traditional awards show In Memoriam segment to add some irreverence to the ceremony.
Hosts John Mulaney and Nick Kroll invited actor Andy Samberg on stage to sing a parody of Pearl Jam’s “Alive” to celebrate those members of the Hollywood community who didn’t die in 2016. Celebrities cited by Samberg as being “still alive” — the song’s memorable chorus — included Milos Forman, Hailee Steinfeld, Tim Allen, and Matt Damon (a.k.a. “Mattie D-Bones”). Samberg friend Fred Armisen found his way into the song as well, but he fake died during the track, throwing the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star off his game.
