SNL Digital Short Hilariously Takes ‘You Only Live Once’ Catch Phrase Way Too Literally

SNL Digital Short Hilariously Takes 'You Only Live Once' Phrase Way Too Literally

SNL Digital Shorts returned with a bang in the form of a music video parodying the Milennial catchphrase “YOLO” (i.e., “You only live once”) by taking it literally to the point of fear-mongering over the fact that you are going to die and should never do anything dangerous ever.

“You only live once, don’t let it go to waste,” is the song’s main gist. And so: don’t go in cars, buses, planes, trains, boats… anything. In fact, build a bomb shelter and live in it for the rest of your life.

Other pieces of YOLO advice: always wear a triple-locked chastity belt, stay away from kids and their head lice, hire a food taster like medieval kings, avoid pajamas that can kill you in your sleep.

Musical guest Kendrick Lamar made an appearance, rapping a verse of YOLO advice with some reasonable mortgage advice.

Fun fact for those who care: the sample for this song is clearly from the Joy Formidable’s incredibly epic song “Whirring.”
