Former cast member Andy Samberg and his musical comedy troupe, The Lonely Island, returned to "Saturday Night Live" this week with a digital short mocking last year's party slogan of choice for rambunctious teenagers. Joined by this week's host, Adam Levine, and musical guest Kendrick Lamar, The Lonely Island gang put a new spin on "YOLO," Drake's shorthand catchphrase for "You only live once."

The video's premise: Life is short, try not to make it shorter. "Board your windows up, the sun is bad for your health. Always wear a straight jacket so you're safe from yourself," Lonely Island warns.

The new track is available for download on iTunes.
