What Does YOLO Mean? Well I Prefer This Explanation From “The Lonely Island” Featuring Adam Levine And Kendrick Lamar [VIDEO]
YOLO, it's an acronym for, "you only live once". Oddly enough it has been around for a very long time but as of late has gotten more attention and much of it , negative. Leave it to the boys from "Saturday Night Live" to give it a great spin though.
According to Wikipedia, while many have proclaimed it their "motto" and actor Zac Efron even has it tattoo'd on himself, many people think it's just an excuse to live your life recklessly. An example would be when rapper, Ervin McKinness tweeted just before his death that he was drunk and driving 120 mph. He ended the tweet with "YOLO".
So, Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone AKA, "The Lonely Island", came up with a much more "cautious" definition. They take, "YOLO" very seriously and instead of "Hey, YOLO take risks!" they go a complete 180 and say, "Hey, YOLO you better make it last!"
I remember first seeing this video on "SNL" and loved the Adam Levine cameos. Let me know what you think.
