Meyers, Samberg Recreate Classic Films
Andy Samberg and Seth Meyers looks for a way to “phone home” as they recreate a scene from the classic movie E.T. The two former SNL stars were asked by People magazine to recreate the scene for their 40th Anniversary issue. Originally they wanted Meyers and Samberg to recreate Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid according to E! online. However, Meyers and Samberg made a special request to recreate E.T. instead.
The video (seen below) shows the behind the scenes shoot with Meyers and Samberg. It begins with the two joking about a few lines from the movie and the two then discuss their memories of watching the classic movies. Seth Meyers said “My memory of it is really watching more on VHS and that would have been in my basement surround by uh babes.” Meyers later adds, “It’s definitely the kind of movie you can’t wait to show to your kids, If I don’t have kids, I’ll show it to someone else’s kids!”
Meyers even brings up the experience on his show Late Night.
Needless to say, the two stars pulled off the scene perfectly and bring in great comedic laughs.
