The Lonely Island Brings ‘Popstar’ to SNL With a Hilarious New Digital Short
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.
As we’ve come to expect from The Lonely Island, their latest musical offering is incredibly catchy and sounds like it could be a legitimate pop hit…until you actually listen to the lyrics. Samberg uses his Conner4Real persona from Popstar to sing “Finest Girl (Bin Laden),” a song about an attractive woman who wants him to engage in a little sexual congress — only she wants him to pretend like he’s the SEAL team that “f—ed Bin Laden.” Basically, she wants him to terrorize her…but, like, sexually.
That description alone is hilarious, but the video is (obviously) a must-see. And good luck getting this song out of your head. Even if you do, it’ll get stuck right back in there when Popstar hits theaters next month.
