5. Tracy Morgan Parodies Erykah Badu
During the late '90s, Erykah Badu was deep on neo-soul and singing about triflin' dudes. Single "Call Tyrone" got, as Tracy puts it, a lot of triflin' dudes kicked out of their girlfriend's crib. So he used the stage during his stand up act to do his own version, "Simone."

4. Astronaut Jones and Britney Spears
Britney Spears at her prime ("I'm A Slave 4 U") was the hottest thing on Earth. I'll ask my 14-year-old self to confirm. He says yes. Right around that time, she hosted SNL and did an Astronaut Jones sketch with Tracy. Combine the outspoken-ness of Tracy's Astronaut Jones and the hot naivete of a post-pubescent Britney Spears alien girl, and you get this.
