36. Mark Wahlberg Talks To Animals
Air Date: 10/4/08
Starring: Andy Samberg
If you ask us, the world needs more "Mark Wahlberg Talks To Animals" sketches on the show (the SNL Archive lists only two: "Mark Wahlberg Talks to Animals" and "Mark Wahlberg Talks to Christmas Animals").
Still, the first bit, seen above, was funny enough for Andy Samberg to get a house call from Mr. Wahlberg himself—during the next episode, no less—and the actor was not pleased. Of course, it was all in good fun.
As for the skit itself, Samberg was at his deadpan best as the no-nonsense Marky Mark, telling dogs, donkeys, chickens, and any other farm animals about his work on Entourage, his beard in The Perfect Storm, and his familiarity with all of their mothers.
