Samberg performed the song at the Film Independent Spirit Awards
The Lonely Island’s Andy Samberg performed a parody of a Breakfast Club song to ask up-and-coming actors not to sell out to Hollywood.
Samberg performed the parody of the 1985 film’s track ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’ at the Film Independent Spirit Awards on March 3.
Taking to the stage dressed as The Breakfast Club’s John Bender, the comedian name checked multiple Hollywood stars throughout his performance.
You can watch a clip of the show shared to Twitter below.
Talking about several Oscar nominated actors, Samberg sang: “Don’t you forget about us, Saoirse don’t leave, don’t put your face upon a bus. Timothée Chalamet, if you stay indie, we’ll pronounce it the pretentious way.”
“Jordan [Peele] and Kumail [Nanjiani], don’t go – don’t fall for the seductive dancing of the studios,” he sang about the Get Out director and Big Sick stars.
Samberg went on to reference Ladybird director Greta Gerwig, hinting the Indie film world would likely be losing her to the mainstream after her Oscar nod.
He concluded: “The moral of the story is go make that f**kin’ money, say ta ta, ta ta Greta [Gerwig], ta ta Greta, have fun directing Lady Godzilla!”
The Oscars 2018 will take place tonight (March 4). You can see a fill list of nominations and information on the ceremony here.
