With the “Mark Wahlberg Talks To The Animals” sketch getting a lot of press due to the staged Max Payne-promotional tactic “fight” between Wahlberg and Andy Samberg that concluded on last night’s show… I keep getting reminded of SNL’s superior talks to animals sketch of yore: Brian Fellows Safari Planet. It aired a bunch of times around 2002 or 2003, and got huge play in my first year dorm. My roommate and I would obnoxiously quote it over and over: “That goat’s got devil eyes”… “That bird’s a liar”.
Anyway, I had been having trouble finding it for years, but tried again in light of the Samberg/Wahlberg fueled nostalgia and found four of them. And have posted them here. Enjoy.
