Andy Samberg Performs “Alive” as Eddie Vedder at the Independent Spirit Awards

Imagine the awards show In Memoriam segments, except with people who’re still alive instead of deceased—and with Andy Samberg’s Eddie Vedder impersonation. The Independent Spirit Awards, held the day before the Oscars, got that scenario last night as the comedian did an in-character performance of Pearl Jam’s “Alive.” The sequence was as hilarious as it was educational: Yes, Tim Allen and Best Actor nominee Viggo Mortensen are still alive. Not Fred Armisen, though—he’s dead. Watch the performance below.
