SNL Digital Shorts-Off
Two weeks, 32 videos and a couple million views later, it turns out all you need to determine the best SNL Digital Short is three easy steps. Step 1: Cut a hole in a box. Step 2: Get Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake to sing about their junk. Step 3: Think about how unnecessary Step 1 was and watch "D**k in a Box" become the runaway winner of SNL's Digital Shorts-Off. It faced (ahem) stiff competition from "I'm on a Boat" and had to dethrone "Lazy Sunday" in the Finals. But "D**k in a Box" wound up being the most loved Digital Short ever.
