The Lonely Island Performs 'Finest Girl (Bin Laden Song)' on 'Saturday Night Live': Watch

Andy Samberg returned to Saturday Night Live last night (May 21) for the show's season finale, giving a sterling performance as his Lonely Island alter-ego, Connor4Real. While the crux of the song and video for "Finest Girl (Bin Laden)," are peak Lonely Island, the subtext is far more outlandish: Samberg is wooed by a sexually liberated woman who harbors some bizarre fantasies about former Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, and Connor4Real is appropriately irked. Watch it above. 

It had been a while since the trio that unleashed "On a Boat" and "J--z In My Pants" had taken the stage at SNL, but the group comprised of Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone has been busy, most notably with the mockumentary Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, which releases next month. Just last week, the group appeared on Fallon, performing the nautical banger "On a Boat" on classroom instruments, proving they are the ultimate educational authority on pop music satire.
