Mark Wahlberg does not enjoy parody

October 13th, 2008 // 95 Comments

Mark Wahlberg has his panties in a bunch over a Saturday Night Live sketch from last week called “Mark Wahlberg Talks to Animals.” It features Andy Samberg playing Mark as he introduces himself to barnyard animals. Unfortunately, Marky Mark hated it so much that not only does he never want to host SNL, but he wishes Joe Piscopo was still on it. Whoa! Jesus. Let’s not say things we can’t take back. The New York Post reports:

“Someone showed it to me on YouTube. It wasn’t like Tina Fey doing Sarah Palin, that’s for sure. And “Saturday Night Live” hasn’t been funny for a long time. They’ve asked me to do the show a ton of times. I used to watch it when Eddie Murphy was there and Joe Piscopo and Bill Murray. I don’t even know who’s on the show now.”

I embedded the clip after the jump which I thought was funny. Then again, I was suckered into watching Adam Sandler’s You Don’t Mess with the Zohan this weekend, so right now everything seems hysterical in comparison. I’m pretty sure my own penis could fall off, and I’d giggle like a schoolgirl.

    SNL hasn’t been funny since Chris Farley

  2. You're retarded

    You’re pretty? Uh, no. You mean “you’re pretty SURE.” spellcheck and copyedit your shit, dude(s)…

  3. It was kind of hard to find this post with all the Samantha Who crap everywhere. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a website where 90% of the stuff above the fold was advertisements. Disgusting.

    Say hi to your mother for me.

    I didnt find it funny, but it was a pretty good impersonation.

  5. You ARE pretty…

    It was a good impersonation, he had the voice down, but the skit itself was really terrible. Basically just like the filler they put in the last 10 minutes of the show when they’re trying to meet their time limit.

  18. yeah yeah

    Does anyone still watch SNL? If you are, then count yourself as a loser

    I didn’t get it, but then again I don’t get much on SNL. I stopped watching, if I can remember correctly, when Mike Myers, Chris Rock, Chris Farley, Phil Hartmen, Dana Carvey- all those guys went away one way or another. Most of the sketches are pretty dry now. I tried watching and the only things I saw before turning was Will Ferrell and Tom Greene sticking their tongues in each other’s mouths as eagles, and those two guys doing that stupid college internet web cam thing, and all they could find humor in was smoking reefer. I’m waiting for them to fire all the twelve year old writers, and for actors that can do their lines without waiting for a laugh or looking to the side at their cue cards before I’ll watch it again. Mad TV is way funnier than SNL. Although, Tina Fey is the saving grace right now.

    Can’t really say why, but when I saw that sketch live, I unhinged my jaw and laughed like a country bumpkin on a moonshine high. Even rewatching it, I think it’s funny. C’mon – “So, you like apples? I produce Entourage.” That’s gold, Jerry!

    Not the funniest thing they’ve ever done, but definitely a recent highlight – I think because of inanity and simplicity.

    By the way – watched “The Happening” last night – we could barely get through it because after every Mark Wahlberg line, someone in the room said, “Say hi to your mother for me.” Kinda wished I watched it a couple weeks ago…

    All the cool kids know that the only way to watch SNL is on Hulu so you can just close out the clips that stink after 30 seconds.

  22. Ill bet the funky bunch find it funny…Gerard Vandenberg blowz

  23. kk

    what a POOR SPORT.

    lame wahlberg, stupid and lame

    just like entourage is becoming.

    get a sense of humor and fast

    I passionately hate Andy Samberg, but this clip was funny to me.

    I don’t know why he’d be upset, they didn’t even make fun of him, nobody believes he talks to animals. Dumb.

  25. Nick

    I guess I’m a loser because I still watch SNL Every week. Of course every skit isn’t funny, but there are still some real gems once in a while. I thought the Mark Wahlberg skit was absolutely hilarious for some reason. I have showed it to several friends and they thought it was funny too. Different strokes.

  26. bigpimpin

    If anyone saw the happening, it was the funniest/worst acting ever, which is what the scene is making fun of that movie. It’s hilarioius, and judging by his reaction its great!

    Marky Mark shouldn’t be offended, but he was correct when he said it wasn’t funny.

  33. Goblinkatie

    “It wasn’t like Tina Fey doing Sarah Palin, that’s for sure.”

    So it’s only funny when other people are mocked? Real classy there, Marky Mark.

    Granted the sketch itself wasn’t funny at all, but he still needs to flush the sand from vajayjay and get over it.

  34. Sgt. C. Foxtrot

    I don’t get the reference. :|

  35. joss

    I second #5.

  36. crabdonkey

    Mark deserved this after his performance in the happening. He and Zoe made the entire thing excruciating. Quick! Run from the wind.

  37. Fred

    And he’s a fucking Notre Dame fan. what a douchebag.

  38. M

    Yeah, but Mark Wahlberg laughed really hard when he pelted a group of black kids with rocks and even harder when he got out of prison in under two months after robbing a drug store while high on PCP and punching a Vietnamese man, blinding him in one eye.

  39. Anastasia

    I love SNL and the current cast, and I thought that skit was damn funny. Marky Mark said he doesn’t even watch the show, so how the hell does he know if it’s funny or not? douchebag.

  40. WTF

    Marky Mark is a convicted felon. Didn’t he beat someone up and blind them ? And he’s not amused at a skit about him. What a tool. Maybe someday someone will do the same to him.

  41. Maggie

    I didn’t really get it. But then, the only way SNL can even get viewers to watch is to pull in old cast members.

  42. TheMetaphysical

    Wahlberg is a punk.
    Guy is worth gazillions but never did anything to compensate a guy he blinded. He is one of the few, that if he got hit by a bus, I would laugh.

    From wikipedia
    Wahlberg knocked a middle aged Vietnamese man unconscious, left another Vietnamese man permanently blinded in one eye, and attacked a security guard. For these crimes, Wahlberg was charged for attempted murder, pled guilty to assault, and was sentenced to two years in jail at Boston’s Deer Island House of Correction, of which he served 45 days.

  43. Tim

    Reminds me of Frank Caliendo – the impersonation was dead-on, but the skit wasn’t funny.

    But Wahlberg is beyond dumb. Now SNL has much better material for a new skit, “Mark Wahlberg Doesn’t Think That Was Funny.” It basically writes itself. I don’t know how they could screw it up and make it unfunny, but they probably will.

  44. Spot on. That’s the funniest thing I’ve seen on SNL since Carrie Fisher hosted. In 1978.

  45. HuckyDucky

    BWAHAHAHAHA!!! I DID like that. Hilarious! That guy takes himself waaaaaaaaayyyyy too seriously. Now it’s time to pour it on.

  46. friendlyfires

    1.) This is why we NEVER invite Mark Wahlberg to cocktail parties, church services, road trips or , outdoors – AT ALL!
    No sense of humor.
    2.) Bill Maher – where’s my Maypo?

  47. The Populist

    LOL, for some reason I thought it was funny. Don’t know why, maybe the way Samberg has the tone and diction down pat and the way he was all serious talking to the animals in that way only Marky Mark knows how.

    I hate SNL but I had it on that night in the background and couldn’t stop laughing at that one dumb skit.

    Mark Wahlberg is the only American alive dumber than my vice president.
