These Saturday Night Live innovations range from hilarious rapper spoofs to sultry comedian editorials that no one expected. This past Sunday, Saturday Night Live celebrated its 40th anniversary with a 3 hour show that featured a cast of alumni and past celeb hosts. The #SNL40 event became a viral sensation thanks to its revival of iconic skits like Wayne's World and The Californians.

For 40 years, sketch comedy show SNL has changed the way we experience comedy and has always aimed to reinvent itself. From Will Ferrell's famous 'More Cowbell' sketch to Tina Fey's Sarah Palin impression, Saturday Night Live continues to make us laugh today.

Standouts from this list of SNL innovations include refined and suggestive comedian photoshoots that show another side of Kristen Wiig and Tina Fey's goofy persona. Other favorites from this list include Saks Fifth Avenue's Key to the Cure collection, a kine that features designer pieces inspired by SNL cast costumes.
