The Lonely Island released a video today for their new single "Spring Break Anthem," a video that mixes spring break hijinx with same-sex marriage and wedding planning.
In a sneaky swerve the video starts off as a new edition of actor Zach Galifianakis' Funny Or Die "Between Two Ferns" series. In it the Hangover star interviews James Franco. After some quick questions about Franco's film "127 Hours" ("127 hours, is that how many hours you look in the mirror every day?") and other bizarre inquiries ("Your face resembles James Dean's, is it safe to say your sausage resembles Jimmy Dean's?") and hosting the Academy Awards, Galifianakis stops the interview to introduce The Lonely Island.
The band is then shown introducing the video, directed by the band and Scott Aukerman, which starts showing a typical college crowd partying hard interspersed with shots of three gay couples planning weddings — one featuring The Lonely Island's Andy Samberg, another with Galifianakis and the third with Ed Norton.
The actual song continues the video's theme of combining spring break and gay marriage, including lyrics like "giant sombreros, show us your titties, creatine shakes, marry a man!"
The single is from the group's forthcoming album "The Wack Album" which comes out June 11. According to the band's site, the album will feature Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Adam Levine, Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, T-Pain, Solange and Pharrell Williams. Each Wednesday leading up to the release the group is releasing either a song or a video for a song off the new record.
