Mark Feuerstein in Internet Video

According to Newsday, Mark Feuerstein, who plays Cliff Calley, is featured in an Internet video:
"While it may not quite live up to the Biggie vs. Tupac beef, a battle-rap video billed as the West Coast response to the popular "Saturday Night Live" skit "Lazy Sunday," is the latest viral video to hit the Internet.

The "SNL" short, which became one of the most downloaded videos when it first appeared in December, featured cast members Chris Parnell and Andy Samberg, rapping about the greatness of Red Vines, Mr. Pibb soda and Magnolia Bakery cupcakes as they head to the movie theater to see "The Chronicles of Narnia."

In the West Coast version, "Lazy Monday," Mark Feuerstein and Adam Stein try to one-up their rivals by bragging about iced coffee and hanging out at Color Me Mine, a paint-your-own-pottery novelty store (both videos can be seen at

Feuerstein, an actor who has appeared in several TV shows, including "West Wing," and Stein, a writer/director and graduate of the University of Southern California film school, created the video with fellow USC alum Sam Friedlander, who served as director.

"We actually sent it directly to 'SNL' first and offered them the opportunity to put it on the air as a direct challenge to them to start what could still be a recurring bit, but . . . they said they couldn't air it because we're not regular members of the cast," Feuerstein said.

And in typical hip-hop fashion, Feuerstein is doing everything he can to escalate the beef.

"We have not heard from them [Parnell and Samberg], and if we don't we're going to attempt to arrange a drive-by water-gun hit on them!"
