  • After poking fun at his Beatles hit "Yesterday" on Fallon earlier in the week, Paul McCartney appeared as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend, and filmed a hilarious digital short with Andy Samberg and host Paul Rudd. In the clip for "Stumbling," — which features Samberg stumbling around Rockefeller Center — features Macca spoofing Berlin's 80s hit "Take My Breath Away" and performing a "tiny harmonica solo." Check it out below.
