See Michael McDonald Nail 'Saved by the Bell' Theme for '30 Rock'

Marc Hogan

Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue isn't the only long-running franchise turning to musicians for a little corporate synergy. 30 Rock's whiskey-swilling NBC suit Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) is on the hunt for a Super Bowl halftime performer who isn't Madonna — don't worry, there's a reason — in a ridiculous new episode of its animated online spin-off, The Donaghy Files.

Cee Lo Green, Ryan Adams, and Childish Gambino (a.k.a. Community actor Donald Glover) all lend their vocal talents, but golden-voiced former Doobie Brothers member — and recent Holy Ghost! collaborator — Michael McDonald has to be the unanimous winner. He croons the Saved by the Bell theme song, OK? Donaghy's final reaction to all this, as you'll see, is pretty similar to that of 12-year-old boys drooling over clandestine copies of the aforementioned swimsuit issue. (Via Complex)
