Between Two Ferns: The Lonely Island - "Spring Break Anthem" (#WACK WEDNESDAYS)

It's a comedy match made in heaven that I'm surprised Judd Apatow or Todd Phillips haven't thought of pairing up before: The Lonely Island, James Franco, and Zach Galifianakis. Former SNL alum Andy Samberg and comedy partners Akiva Schaffer & Jorma Taccone announced their third upcoming Comedy-Rap masterpiece, The Wack Album earlier this week, which Republic will release on June 11th. It's rumored to feature appearances from the likes of Justin Timberlake, Kendrick Lamar, Solange, Lady GaGa, Pharrell, Billie Joe Armstrong, Adam Levine, and T-Pain; and I'm guessing The Wack Album will most likely re-use previously released Digital Shorts/non-album singles like "3-Way (The Golden Rule)" and "YOLO."

The Lonely Island will release new material every Wednesday from now until June 11th in an effort that the self-proclaimed Frappers lament, "Wack Wednesdays, it's like #GOODFRIDAYS... But way wacker." "Spring Break Anthem" starts out like a web-isode of Zach Galifianakis' infamous talk show, Between Two Ferns and features a disjointed interview with James Franco "from the movie [Ounce] The Great & Powerful" ha. Galifianakis then introduces the musical guest, The Lonely Island, who's janky studio performance suddenly morphs into a Spring Break mega-party. "Spring Break Anthem" is quite obviously ragging on all those orange LMFAO-listening college co-ed tools. But it's done so well that this could very likely become one of Spring/Summer 2013's biggest smash hits, which is fucking great!
