The first song in their “Wack Wednesday” promotion features Zach Galifianakis, James Franco and Ed Norton.

Lonely Island Debut

The Lonely Island teased their upcoming release The Wack Album during a commercial break on the most recent Saturday Night Live. This week, they have kept up the promotional head of steam by announcing "Wack Wednesdays". Each Wednesday, the group will unveil a new music video for a different track off the album until the June 11th release date. 

Even this video was done in the goofy Lonely Island style, with plenty of sight gags, flashing text everywhere and some profanity thrown in for good measure. Check out the announcement below, including Robo-Kiv and the invention of the newest catch phrase "Hold on to your Mom's dick."

Today just so happens to be Wednesday, and Wack Wednesday started off with a bang. The group debuted "Spring Break Anthem," which doubled as an episode of "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis." It starts off like a normal episode of the show, Galifiankis insults Franco with his questions, and then he announces The Lonely Island as a musical guest, where they break into song and cut to the real music video.

The song is amazingly and hilariously dirty as it oddly juxtaposes all of the trashy spring break themes with men marrying each other. The crew raps about women flashing their breasts, getting f*cked up and partying while finishing the lines with "Marry a man." The song then progresses to be more about men getting married, planning nuptials and impressing the in-laws while also throwing in random spring break lines. The video demonstrates the pattern perfectly with wild spring break footage of the guys around scantily clad women with slow-motion footage of them with guys during those other lines.

The men they are paired up with? Galifianakis, Franco and Edward Norton, who was mentioned in the brief "Between Two Ferns" as someone Franco would like to work with. 

The song and video are both outstandingly funny, and it goes to show you can make a raucous parody rap and accompanying music video about both Spring Break and three beautiful weddings between men who are in love. 

After this strong showing, I'm very much looking forward to all of the "Wack Wednesday" outputs from the guys until June 11th. In addition to this first video, the official album cover made its way to the Internet along with the full list of collaborators. People like Justin Timberlake, Adam Levine, Lady Gaga and Kendrick Lamar were already presumed to be included based on their involvement with the group previously. More names include T-Pain ("I'm on a Boat 2"???), Pharrell Williams, Billie Joe Armstrong and Solange.
