I'm pretty sure we're required by some sort of cosmic law to post this info. You see, The Lonely Island (Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer) -- the dudes behind the hugely popular SNL Digital Shorts -- are releasing an album on February 10th. And if you've been to our site over the last couple years, you know they've been very kind to us since we launched in 2007, doing various interviews and comedy pieces with us about their 2007 movie, Hot Rod, their time on Saturday Night Live, and their online comedy before all that.
Plus, a CD filled with comedy songs made by guys who work on television and in movies (besides Hot Rod, Samberg was in Space Chimps and the upcoming I Love You, Man; Taccone had a brief part in last year's Role Models and will be co-starring with Will Ferrell in Land of the Lost) covers all four of our sections all at once! It's like serendipity or something. Anyway, the details for the CD/DVD release are below.
The Lonely Island's Incredibad will be released on Tuesday, February 10th from Universal Republic. You've got the recent massive hit (15 million views and counting) "Jizz in My Pants", plus a bunch of other Digital Short tracks and a host of new songs, many featuring some of music's biggest names. Take a look for yourselves.
Take a look below at the pre-SNL "Just 2 Guyz" (my personal all-time favourite piece of theirs). That song's brand new sequel, "We Like Sportz", is disabled from embedding, but can still be viewed directly on YouTube (in HD!). And be sure to pre-order the album so you can be listening to these sweet tunes that will take you to Awesometown on February 10th!
