    I guess that shows what a great impression those subsequent versions of it left on me.

    I can't do that song without the glove...

    (all 3 guys have the glove)

    Who has a Michael Jackson glove at work?

    That struck me funny...:eek::D

    Yes, it was...really smart writing, played to Bruno's strengths...

    Sorry you didn't enjoy Jay Pharoah's impression...I think he does all right, I think his Obama is better than Fred Armisen's ....

    And like I said, that debate was so over the top, it was so mockable, I just loved the satire. SO funny!

    Bill Hader is dressed up as Stefan on The Night Of Too Many Stars (telethon for autism thingy.)

    I wonder if he's answering the phone as Stefan.

    I just saw the real Brad Pitt Chanel commercial that SNL was parodying. OMG, that was so stupid (the original, that is. the parody was perfect, especially the "you guys really don't want to give me a script?) :D

    I had always suspected this, and then I found this:

    During the debate skit I kept wondering what the real question-askers thought of the parodies of themselves because they were all spot-on and devastatingly funny. They barely had to change anything the citizens actually said or did!

    When he was singing the Justin Bieber song in the Pandora sketch I thought he was channeling Timberlake.

    They did play (a little) during the hook. Although playing a wind instrument while jumping around like that is difficult! ;)

    This even made it to slashdot today.

    I had downloaded the show to my computer, but then after hearing the songs, didn't end up saving it, I don't think.. It MIGHT be in my other Tivo's recently deleted. I thought about saving this skit, but didn't.

    (I hoped he'd do 'the lazy song', the only song of his that I like.)

    Is this the first time they've done it without Timberlake? When I saw they were doing it, I thought, "I thought this was one of JT's staples."

    The only reason I knew who Bruno Mars was because he was a musical guest on the show last season.

    However many times they did it, I think only the first time had JT.

    This link from dailypicksandflicks.com (at least for now) has the full Pandora skit.

    I didn't know much about Bruno Mars before watching this episode, but this was one of my favorite sketches in a while. I think Jason Sudeikis ad-libbed the "not your best, Devon, not your best buddy" after the Louis Armstrong song, which made Bruno laugh and turn around. Good stuff.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who did not know who BM was at all. I've heard the name once or twice, but that's it.

    I thought this episode was the strongest in years. In the haunted house sketch I can't get over how well they all mimic real low budget animatronic characters, esp Hader.

    Actually, the first time they did it was with Jim Carrey, then Timberlake, and now Mars (plus Tom Hanks). The only think I'm not positive of is if they've done it twice with Timberlake or just once.

    I just looked at my records which go back to February 2009. Merryville has only been done the 3 times that Devdog just mentioned. I thought it was more too.
