SNL makes fun of Bono

Anyone watching this skit? Farrell's got the voice down pretty well.

I just saw it... very funny
they talked about the unos, dos, tres, catorce, U2 iPod, & they did a parody of the U2 performance, - head butt, camera spin and all...
and they didn't really make fun of Bono - very tasteful representation of him by Farrell

Pretty funny stuff!

I am DEEPLY disturbed by how accurate Farrel's mannerisms were during the "Vertigo" performance. I admit, though--I cringed a bit more watching him than I did watching Bono...just a bit, though...

Colin is good friends with Bono, I bet he's had those mannerisms down for awhile.

I don't suppose anybody randomly caught video?

Well, I guess it's a heads up to the west coast folks.

Wow....he just said, "I shit you not," and the feed didn't cut out until like three or four seconds later. Someone fucked up with the tape delay over at NBC... What a way to end the show...quite Bono-esque.

My dad yelled up to me that Bono was on tv, but then he realized it was just an actor playing Bono. It must have been quite dead-on.

Well was the questionable word used as an adjective, verb or noun?
Apparently this makes all the difference in the world

I didn't find anything special about his Bono accent. He did do well with the mannerisims though.

Here's a video clip of the Colin Farrell portion of the Telemundo SNL skit: http://s20.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=3...6CF6A99CB5BFA0

I'm sorry about the picture/audio quality. It's the best that I can do with my webcam/line-in slot on my computer.

I'd greatly appreciate if people could post new YSI links if the link happens to expire.
