Live From Pandora’s Headquarters, It’s Saturday Night!

What happens when Pandora goes down? Apparently, it improvises. At least that’s how the crew at “Saturday Night Live” imagined it last night in a skit about the Internet radio company. The show’s host and musical guest, Bruno Mars, played the role of a Pandora intern, who steps up to impersonate a string of artists when the power goes down at the company’s headquarters. Bruno started off with easy artists, such as Green Day and Katy Perry, but impressed the most after belting out back-to-back Michael Jackson songs as some imaginary listener keeps hitting the “skip” button.

Watch the clip below, but don’t miss the real Pandora CEO Joe Kennedy, who will be live at the upcoming D: Dive Into Mobile conference on Oct. 29 and 30. There’s still time to get tickets — but not that much time, so register here.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
