Kids do a lot of things they’re not supposed to do. My parents had a firm 10pm bedtime. For years, I snuck a portable TV into my room on Saturday nights and covered it with a blanket to watch Saturday Night Live. Looking back, managing the heat output from that TV was my first technical achievement.
The parental wrath and fire risk were worth it. There’s something magical about LIVE TV. I watched in anticipation to see what Jim Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy would do. I had to tune in, it was LIVE. SNL made Mondays my favorite day. Re-performing the sketches at school was a red badge of courage. Like a concert shirt, I proved I was there. Looking back, being a fan of SNL and a part of something LIVE brought me closer to my friends.
It’s only been one short week since Verizon Wireless brought Color to its amazing 4G LTE network and devices. Now, SNL will be using the Color app to Broadcast a sneak peek of SNL cast members LIVE this week as they get ready for the show and then more Color Broadcasts, LIVE backstage during the season finale hosted by Mick Jagger.
I’ve dreamed about being backstage at SNL my entire life. Verizon Wireless is granting my wish (and yours too). Through the Color app and on Facebook, we get to see a LIVE glimpse of how the show comes together and be there backstage LIVE on Saturday night for the season finale.
To get backstage, all you’ll need to do is fan Verizon Wireless or SNL on Facebook and get the free Color app. Then be on the lookout for SNL's Color notifications on your phone to watch LIVE!
