SNL returned to television for a new season this weekend, and it’s back with a bang. Well, at least Andy Samberg is back with a bang. If we’re all honest with each other, he’s really the only reason we're still watching Saturday Night Live anymore.

In case you missed it, Samberg kicked the new season of SNL into high gear with another of his brilliant digital shorts. You’ve seen “The Chronic-what-cles of Narnia”, you’ve offered your girlfriend a “Dick in a Box”, but now you’ll have to make sweet sweet love to the President of Iran.

Samberg’s new digital short this Saturday was “I Ran”, and it’s already burning a path across the internet as people watch and re-watch it online. The short was a hilarious love song to Iran’s President who, while on his visit to New York last week laughably announced there are no gay people in Iran. In response, Samberg has put him in a red dress and called him “like a very hairy Jake Gyllenhaal”.
