The Lonely Island FTW

I have a thing for humor and music, and these guys fit the bill. No one introduced them to me. I kind of strolled through Youtube and they found me.
Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone

aka THE LONELY ISLAND

are best known for its musical parodies. The group began creating live comedy skits in junior high school and continued to do so, expanding its repertoire to comedic shortsmusic parody (both songs and videos), and one full-length television pilot, before coming to the attention of Lorne Michaels of Saturday Night Live (SNL). -Wikipedia
From their Incredibad album:

'Who Said We're Wack?' 
'Santana DVX'
'Jizz in My Pants' 
'I'm on a Boat' (ft.T-Pain) 
'Sax Man' (ft. Jack Black) 
'Lazy Sunday' (ft. Chris Parnell) 
'Normal Guy' - Interlude 
'Boombox' (ft. Julian Casablancas) 
'Shrooms' - Interlude 
'Like a Boss' 
'We Like Sportz' 
'Dreamgirl' (ft. Norah Jones) 
'Ras Trent'
'Dick in a Box' (ft. Justin Timberlake) 
'The Old Saloon' (Mix Tape Edit) - Interlude
'Punch You in the Jeans' 
'Space Olympics'
'Natalie's Rap' (ft. Natalie Portman & Chris Parnell) 
'Incredibad' 



I don't know why but they remind me of Beastie Boys, only ten times funnier, genious lyrics and with a satire-ish style that is hilarious. Their videos are just down right internet sensations almost always getting about 8million+ views every time (Jizz In My Pants has 81 MIL views) . The lyrics may be way too explicit for me though. I like the collaboration with other artists like Jack Black, Norah Jones, Julian Casablancas, Chris Parnell, Justin Timberlake and most especially Natalie Portman. Her mouth is WOAAAHH!


It's comedy in a music video. They give you something to talk about and have it repeated. This is their first album and so far it's an A+ for me!


If you listen to the Incredibad track, then you'll know why the album cover is designed that way.


Video I'm still ROFL-ing:
"Jizz In My Pants"



"Boombox"



"Like A Boss"
