Watch the Lonely Island’s Uproarious ‘Spring Break Anthem’
Zach Galifianakis and James Franco co-star in "Wack Wednesdays" inaugural video
One of the beauties of hip-hop is that parody and references to other songs are already built into the form, but if you’re looking for straight-up comedy-rap, the Lonely Island will still keep you cracking up. The Saturday Night Live-spawned troupe releases its third LP, The Wack Album, on June 11, with a track list impressively including Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” star Pharrell Williams, T-Pain, and Solange. Until then, they’ll be releasing a new video every “Wack Wednesday,” echoing Kanye West’s “GOOD Fridays.” Stereogum points to today’s clip for “Spring Break Anthem,” which interrupts Zach Galifianakis’ Between Two Ferns talk-show chat with Spring Breakers actor James Franco to give us, what else, a send-up of spring break culture. It wouldn’t be sporting to reveal the gags or any (hypothetical) cameos, but let’s just say it’s all funny enough to make you forget nobody’s on spring break anymore.
