If ever you caught Andy Samberg’s hysterical HBO tennis mockumentary 7 Days in Hell, you’d know the wealth of celebrities along for the ride. Followup cycling movie Tour de Pharmacy already has major names like John Cena and Phylicia Rashad, now joined by Orlando Bloom in a mystery role.

Surely, you didn’t think Jon Snow and Andy Samberg’s mullet playing tennis for seven days would be the weirdest thing HBO could come up with. Samberg and Murray Miller have already begun working on another sport mockumentary focused on the Tour de France doping scandals, this time starring Will Forte, Dolph Lundgren, John Cena and more.

The Lonely Island, the comedy musical trio behind great American classics ‘Dick in a Box,’ ‘I’m on a Boat, ‘and ‘Jizz in My Pants,’ are now movie stars. Or at least they star in a new movie as fake pop stars mocking celebrity culture and the music industry.

‘Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping’ Review: The Lonely Island Makes ‘Spinal Tap: The Next Generation’

by Matt Singer June 1, 2016 @ 10:04 AM
It’s been more than 30 years since This Is Spinal Tap hilariously mocked the pop music scene and launched the mockumentary subgenre. If there can be such a thing as a “spiritual remake” of an old movie, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is it. It takes the same basic structure as Spinal Tap (a fake documentary about life in the music industry) and its narrative framework (a formerly hot pop acts fall from grace) and layers in a whole new generation of jokes about dopey celebrities in the age of social media. It doesn’t break any new ground, and it might not even be its creators’ most effective satire of this subject, but it is funny.

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.

There were plenty of fantastic moments in SNL’s Season 41 finale, and while the last sketch of the night might not have been the most laugh-out-loud funny among them, it was definitely the most wonderful. Host Fred Armisen brought a few of his fellow SNL vets together along with a couple of special guests to form the perfect, subtly quirky ’70s southern jam band, complete with 20-something members and a tambourine or two.

The Lonely Island Brings ‘Popstar’ to SNL With a Hilarious New Digital Short

by Britt Hayes May 22, 2016 @ 8:41 AM
It may seem like it’s been forever since The Lonely Island delivered a new Digital Short on SNL, but it’s only been a little over a year (which is like, eight years in Adult Time). In any case, Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone are back with their latest music offering, this one taken straight from their upcoming film Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping — which also happens to be an early contender for the best movie title of the year.
