dope rhymin'
Someone must have slipped up — “Saturday Night Live” actually did something funny for a change.

“Lazy Sunday”, aka “The Chronic(What?)les of Narnia” (also available for download via iTunes) is the geekiest whiteboy rap-quest you’re ever likely to see. I particularly liked the “I’m Ghost like Swayze” bit.

This little piece of filmed merriment isn’t enough to reverse a full decade of suckiness by “SNL”. But it’s a start, I suppose.

UPDATE: Josh Levin at Slate annoints the clip with a post-modernist oldschool hip-hop video sensibility. I can see where he’s coming from, but I can’t help but think it sounds like grousing for the “good ol’ days” of rap, and how the current lineup doesn’t measure up. And before “SNL” becomes an influencer on the music, it ought to try becoming relevent in a comic vein first.
