Andy Samberg Uses a Banana as a Telephone in NSFW ‘Popstar’ Music Video
If you’re a fan of The Lonely Island, then you’re probably pretty stoked for Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, which features a whole soundtrack full of new songs from the musical comedy trio. Leading up to the film’s release next week, we’ve already seen a few music videos featuring Andy Samberg’s fictional alter ego Conner4Real — including an amazing Bin Laden-themed video that debuted on SNL. Universal has released yet another obviously NSFW music video from Popstar, this time with a little freestyle action.
Samberg’s Conner4Real raps about being a weirdo in the new video for the appropriately-titled “I’m a Weirdo Freestyle.” In it, he proudly proclaims his weirdness, using a banana as a telephone and pronouncing “ergot” as “ear-go.” You know, just some things that weird people like to do or whatever.
Popstar hasn’t been tracking very well, and it’s looking like it won’t make a ton of bank at the box office, but that seems about right — The Lonely Island is an acquired comedic taste on the same level as MacGruber, which developed a cult following on home video after a disappointing theatrical run. But if you’re one of those weirdos who love The Lonely Island’s antics, then it’s safe to assume that Popstar is definitely for you.
