With the unfortunate news that Andy Samberg will be leaving Saturday Night Live, we decided to bring you a PSA featuring the comedian. Some of you will remember the Star Wars themed PSA for the Stand Up to Cancer campaign which we posted a while back. Another service announcement counts Samberg among its celebrities, along with fellow Jewish and non-Jewish comedians alike. The Judd Apatow-directed video features Ben Stiller, Jerry Seinfeld, Sarah Silverman and more in support of the American Jewish World Service for their 25th anniversary last year. Hit the jump to check out the PSA.
Here’s what the AJWS had to say about the video:
It rocks. So by all means, laugh your tuches off. Enjoy some of the most celebrated names in entertainment (including Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman, Kiefer Sutherland, Susan Sarandon and, yes, Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog) roasting AJWS as we mark our 25th anniversary. We’re here to amuse.
But along the way we also alleviate poverty, hunger and disease in the developing world (sounds crazy, but it’s what we do.) And to make that happen, we rely on assistance from people like you. So when this achingly funny video ends please consider donating, taking action or signing up for one of our e-mail newsletters. Just click one of the bright, shiny buttons to right of the player. It takes about 13 seconds.
As Patrick Stewart says, “Individuals can change the world. “ And as a Starfleet captain, he should know (even though he’s not Jewish.)
