The Lonely Island: Incredibad

The Lonely Island
Republic Records [2009]

Fire Drills Review:
The Lonely Island is the comedic collaborative of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer and Incredibad captures the music and videos from all of their SNL digital shorts and instant YouTube hits. SNL hit its most creative peak in years during the election season but part of the ramp up included these digital shorts that were absolutely hilarious. From "D**k In A Box" with Justin Timberlake, to the Chronicles Of Narnia spoof rap "Lazy Sunday" and the hardcore side of Natalie Portman in "Natalie's Rap" all sound great and are funny every time you watch. This CD/DVD release of course will only appeal to those who have seen the clips or into comedy but with millions of hits on the Internet I would say there is an audience.

Key Track: "D In A Box (feat. Justin Timberlake)"

Band With Similar Fire: Tenacious D
