    Admiral Spaceship

    As one-half of the duo Admiral Spaceship and Nitro, Samberg starred in the sci-fi digital short "Laser Cats," and undoubtedly created one of his most memorable characters along the way.

      Liam, The Teenager Who Just Woke Up

      Samberg definitely has a knack for making the subtleties of life extravagant. Like here, where he plays a Weekend Update guest who is essentially a teenager who just woke up. He's supposed to report on important issues, but can't help but talk only about the insane dreams he just had.

        Ras Trent

        Samberg hit full stride with his take on the cliche of the college-aged Reggae-loving white boy with his character Ras Trent. The character depicted the kid we all knew in college who relentlessly mocked "bald heads," smoked weed from a Sprite can, and owned a DVD copy of Cool Runnings.

          Declan

          Declan was everyone's nightmare college roommate, and in this case, he was bunking up with none other than a young Justin Bieber. Some of his antics include thinking a dead rat is a dog, staring at Bieber naked while holding a knife, and getting the same haircut as Bieber. Declan is ultimately a pretty funny satirization of teen movie stereotypes.
