It’s been 6 1/2 years, since the original Lazy Sunday went viral on the Internet. In 2005, YouTube was new, NBC did not know how to respond to bootleg sharing of copyrighted content on the Internet, and The Chronicles of Narnia was somewhat relevant. Even though NBC ordered YouTube to take down all unauthorized uploads, Lazy Sunday still became an Internet sensation spawning several spinoffs, such as Lazy Muncie and Lazy Ramadi. Despite most Lonely Island videos making it to Youtube nowadays, it is still next to impossible to find the original Lazy Sunday on YouTube.
There was something special about Lazy Sunday. NBC had struck lightening in a bottle. It was full of New York attitude and current pop culture references. Nobody saw last night coming. Lazy Sunday 2 debuted last night on Saturday Night Live. Obviously, it is not as good as the original, nothing can be. However, Lazy Sunday 2 comes close. It is full of everything that made the first one great.
