Last night on SNL I saw one of the funniest things I’ve seen in awhile – a video short starring Andy Samberg and Adam Levine from Maroon 5. It was a take off on the song, I Ran so Far Away. In it, Samberg is singing to the faux Ahmadinejad about their gay love affair. It’s well worth watching. It’s on the NBC site at the link below. I’ve watched it so many times I’d had to watch the commercial more than once. It’s witty.
Some of the lyrics:
You can deny the holocaust all you want
but you can’t deny there’s something between us
You say there are no gays in Iran
but you’re in New York now baby.
Words on a page don’t do it justice – go watch the video.
Apparently I’m not the only one who has deemed Ahmadinejad “Nutburger of the Week.”
