Urlesque counts down the top 100 viral videos in the history of the web.

The sketch not only ushered the relevance of SNL into the twenty-first century, but it sent the audience clamoring for repeat viewing -- problem was, of course, that the network kept pulling the footage from YouTube, then in its infancy.

Fast forward to 2008, when our prayers were answered. Hulu was launched as the go-to destination for TV on the web, where -- perhaps after a little pre-roll advertising -- one can watch and re-watch 'Lazy Sunday' (and resulting successes such as 'D*ck In A Box' and 'J*zz In My Pants') without worrying about legalese (or pixelation, either). In addition to the birth of Hulu, we all have 'Lazy Sunday' to thank for catapulting YouTube to the national spotlight as a video sharing destination.

All they may have wanted to do was catch a matinee and eat a cupcake or two, but in the process, Samberg and Parnell changed the way we use our Internet.
