This week's Jack Black-hosted SNL episode included a digital short produced by the Lonely Island guys at their new NBC post. Thankfully, network television does not kill all good things: The Chronic-WHAT-cles of Narnia kicks just as much tuckus as the online shorts that made Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer web celebs in the first place. Watch the video: YouTube link, WMV link. (Thank you, Macki, thanks Jeff Holmes!)
A quick blog search Sunday returned tons of results for the video, ripped and hosted by fans.
Wonder why NBC/SNL isn't offering clips on the official site? Seems like an obvious opportunity lost, given that they branded it as "AN SNL DIGITAL SHORT," anyway. Took 'em two days, but this short and others are now on the SNL site!
Bonus: I wrote a piece about the Lonely Island guys for this month's edition of Wired Magazine. Live, from New York!. Related Boing Boing posts:
