The Final Countdown

For some reason, while I was in the shower, I thought of this skit from "Saturday Night Live." It remains one of my favorites, and while the original skit wasn't available, I thought this was nicely done. The slo-mo effect adds an entirely new dimension to it. Enjoy! And while you're watching, ask yourself how any of these people managed to keep a straight face!

Chris Rock hates this skit and uses it as an example of Farley's decline. He said in an interview that if Farley hadn't been so high that week he would never have agred to the gig. I guess Rock's opinion, and one that was shared at the time, was that it was exploitive of Chris while offering nothing of value in return. 'Value' being subjective of course.

I liked the skit at the time but did feel a bit creeped out afterwards, and in hindsight I guess I agree with Rock. Normally I chafe at crap like that and think people are oversensitive, so I think there must be a kernel of truth to Rock's claim.
