Jude Law hosted “Saturday Night Live” with musical guests Pearl Jam this weekend, and I suppose the cool Internet kids are talking about “Boombox,” the Lonely Island digital short featuring Julian Casablancas (see video below; international readers note that it’s YouTube, NOT Hulu). It doesn’t really light my comedy fire, but it does feature old people having sex and lots of fingerless gloves. And who doesn’t like fingerless gloves?
Personally, I thought the highlight of the show — other than Pearl Jam’s performances — was the spoof of Vicky Cristina Barcelona‘s initial restaurant encounter, featuring Law as a swarthy lothario eager to kill the pretty young Americans (Hulu video below). I guess I’m predictable that way. If there are two things I always find funny, it’s making fun of Woody Allen films and young women getting murdered.
