#ThrowbackThursday: The Lonely IslandJune 13, 2013
The year is 2009. The album is Incredibad. The video is “Jizz in My Pants” and the group behind this feel good anthem to the other sticky icky are America’s favorite rapping castaways Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer aka The Lonely Island. The rest is history. Hysterical history. Like seriously, hysterical, son.
The year is 2010. The Lonely Island drops (that’s like, an industry term for like, released) Turtleneck & Chain. That CD contains the modern classics “I Just had Sex” ft. Akon and “The Creep.”
The year is 2013. Like. This year. Actually this week. The wait is over. The Lonely Island’s The Wack Album is out now. Not so wack, it features the hits “YOLO” and “GO KINDERGARTEN,” and appearances from Robyn, Hugh Jackman (dude, did you see Les Mis? Wolverine can sing!), Too $hort, Solange and Kristen Wiig. In honor of The Lonely Island’s steadfast commitment to funny shit, we present the all-time top The Lonely Island videos.
#5 – The Emmy winning “Dick in a Box”, co-starring Justin Timberlake. Sleazy, sexy and a much-needed excuse to justify not getting your girl a real gift!
#4 – “I Just Had Sex.” Hot girls. Killer hook. The “Stairway to Heaven “of sexual immaturity
#3 – “YOLO.” Who knew Adam Levine was funny?
#2 – “The Creep” ft. John Waters and Nicki Minaj. An introduction to a dance craze that came this close to being the twerk of its time. Thiiiiis close.
#1 – “Jack Sparrow.” Two words: Michael Bolton. Drops mic.
