Details of comedy music group The Lonely Island’s next album The Wack Album have finally surfaced and it’s starting to look like a who’s who of music. But first up is the music video for their next big hit, “Spring Break Anthem.”
Disguised within a new episode of Between Two Ferns, the boys of The Lonely Island (Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone and Andy Samberg) get a little help from the show’s host, Zach Galifianakis, and his guest, James Franco, with a surprise appearance from actor Ed Norton.
While I would’ve been absolutely content with Between Two Ferns as Galifianakis sends out zingers like, “I don’t consider what you did at the Oscars hosting the Oscars,” this is much better. The guys all end up marrying each other because that’s the logical thing to do right in the middle of spring break (got to get all the crazy out of your system before settling down, right?).
On the music side, super heavy weights Justin Timberlake, Solange, Lady Gaga, Pharrell Williams, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and T-Pain are set to appear on the upcoming The Wack Album. “YOLO” featuring Adam Levine and Kendrick Lamar (which previously premiered on Saturday Night Live) will also be included in their new effort. The Wack Album is set to drop June 11.
When a lot of people see Zach Galifianakis’ show Between Two Ferns for the first time, they’re not sure if he’s legit being rude to the celebs or if the whole thing is a farce. Sadly, it’s a parody but a wicked one at that. The show was on hiatus for a while but it’s finally back with an Oscar edition, loaded with the most well-respected nominees. On the list: Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway and Naomi Watts to name a few. Let the awkwardness begin.
At times, Zach Galifianakis’ interview with Tina Fey seems uncomfortably real. She calls the host out during his show Between Two Ferns for his cowardly interview style, after he admits she’s pretty funny for a girl and interrupts the interview to eat food.
“There is a level of malice to your whole behaviour and questioning style,” she said. “It’s almost like you’re being willfully obtuse in these question to make some kind of vague point about the fatuous nature of celebrity interviews, which is a pretty well trod observation.” DAYAAM.
The interview is awkwardness at it’s best. They’re such good actors, they almost have us fooled.
