Lonely Island members regret being really dirty or scary 'with no warning' on “SNL”

"We would not have thought twice about something like that," Akiva Schaffer reveals.

The Lonely Island members are looking back on their comedic videos in a new light now that they're all fathers.

In a recent episode of The Lonely Island and Seth Meyers Podcast, Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone — who each have two kids — all reveal that having children has changed their perspectives on their old Saturday Night Live sketches, songs, and albums.

The Lonely Island's 'I'm on a Boat'

"Every one of our songs is too dirty to play [for our kids]," Taccone says. "There's only 'YOLO' and maybe like one or two others."

"I just play them for them now, but my kids are older," Schaffer added

When co-host Seth Meyers points out there must be a clean version of their song "I'm on a Boat," Samberg confirms it but says that "it's just bleeped to all hell."

That's when Meyers reveals that he regrets making an adult animated superhero show that would get dirty, a.k.a. 2013's The Awesomes, in which Samberg recorded a role but doesn't remember his character's name.

"There's just too many bleeps, and now I have a 7-year-old who loves it," Meyers says. "It was trying to be too cool and we didn't need to be... It's such a drag now because my son really likes watching it and every now and then there's some sexual innuendo and you realize, 'I don't think anybody was watching this superhero show for that.'"

But now that Schaffer has kids who are old enough to watch original Lonely Island videos, he's less concerned about how dirty they were and more about how scary they'd sometimes get with no warning.

"For all SNL, what we really didn't care about was being really dirty or really scary with no warning it was going to happen on the show," Schaffer explains. "Like an Update joke can quickly flash Freddy Krueger's face in a way that a kid who had never seen Freddy Krueger would go, 'Oh, what was that?' in a way that could give them nightmares. We would not have thought twice about something like that. Because we'd be like, 'Yeah, it's a Freddy Krueger joke, here's an image of Freddy Krueger. It's midnight, who cares?'"

Schaffer continues, "And now, when I'm watching with my kids, they like watching SNL but they're afraid it's going to scare them or show them something that they don't want to see and it's going to haunt their dreams, literally. So I would have been cognizant of not scaring or putting something dirty in the middle of something that's not dirty for no reason."

Parenthood has really changed them.
