Seems kind of weird that you can find almost any SNL skit on youtube, but for some reason, this one is gone. And from what I can tell, it is gone from everywhere.

Anyone know why?

NBC has been agressively removing them from youtube citing copyright infringement and trying to promote the ones located at nbc.com. It started I think with the popularity of the "Lazy Sunday" skit.

Unfortunately, the fans lose out as usual because the NBC site only contains a fraction of the skits and is poorly indexed.

Ah, I see. So I take it, it's not there either? I'll go look...

So "Dick in a Box" isn't out there anymore? That was some funny **** right there.

Which one are you looking for?

sometimes they aren't as thorough as they thought, or it's been saved and copied to a myspace or blog site (and not just hotlinked to youtube).

The first debate parody of Obama and Clinton. NBC.com only has a fraction of it...

Yeah, I think NBC has cracked down on a lot of SNL skits on youtube, not just political ones.

This skit has been a hit for them, so I don't see why they would want to hide it.

They don't understand how to market this stuff at all. Their copyright attorneys are not in tune with the technological times I think is likely.

Where's Johnny V13 when you need him, doesn't he do (or did) this type of stuff?
