Lost in all the Oscar’s 2017 madness was Andy Samberg’s hilarious appearance at the Independent Spirit Awards this past weekend.

Also: ‘Moonlight’ Shines at the Independent Spirit Awards 2017

The more relaxed and less pretentious awards event held on Saturday evening in California had its viral moment when Samberg parodied award shows’ “In Memoriam” tradition with an impersonation of Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder singing “Alive”.

The ingenious bit plays out too long (like most of the former SNL star’s work), but features several “still alive” famous faces in the crowd. Check out a video clip below.
