Everyone knows--or should know, if you ask me--Mr. Stefon from Saturday Night Live, whose ill-fated wedding to Anderson Cooper (and all of the assorted guests) was the highlight of the 2013 season finale of SNL. With the departure of @##%%^ national treasure Bill Hader as a regular on the show, it may be the last we see of Stefon for a while.
Regardless what you think of the general quality of SNL overall this season (it was a relatively weak one to me), Stefon always made me laugh. (Full disclosure: I am a sketch comedy fan; tightly scriped funny moments in a 5-minute-long skit are much more likely to hold my attention than a full-length comedy show on TV or even a comic movie.)
At any rate -- what's Stefon got to do with my Throwback Thursday post today? As Stefon would say....this mashup has everything! Led Zeppelin, Queen, Daft Punk, Madonna, Basement Jaxx, Busta Rhymes, James Brown, Knife Party, Linkin Park, Run DMC, Skrillex, Tiesto, and more. Not really inclined to put all these folks together myself, but as Stefon often finds, sometimes a weird mix makes for a good time.
Coming in at 19:33, it may be long enough for a short workout or at least give you a 20 min break where you aren't switching around on a shuffle on your music player. Check it out on soundcloud for free by clicking the big orange circle with arrow in the player below....
Thanks for the memories Stefon, old friend. Here's a great "best of" video from some of his funny moments. Also, some artistic genius created an illustrated guide to all of Stefon's favorite places. DJ Baby Bok Choy comes to life....
