Lonely Island Kick Off 'Wack Wednesdays' with Zach Galifianakis, James Franco

Andy Samberg's comedy rap crew hypes forthcoming album

By |

The Lonely Island's new LP The Wack Album will be out on June 11th, and to stir up buzz, Andy Samberg's comedy crew has started Wack Wednesdays, a YouTube series that will feature new music and videos leading up to the release of the record. Zach Galifianakis leads the first episode, hosting his offbeat fictional talk show Between Two Ferns with James Franco as his guest.

Galifianakis chats up Franco, botching the title to Oz the Great and Powerful, making wild assumptions about 127 Hours and discussing the Spring Breakers star's "sausage." The show also has a special musical guest: none other than the Lonely Island, and the group takes inspiration from Spring Breakers for the expectedly outrageous and boneheaded "Spring Break Anthem."

The Wack Album sports an impressible list of collaborators, including Lady Gaga, Pharrell, Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day, Maroon 5's Adam Levine, Kendrick Lamar, T-Pain, Solange and Justin Timberlake. The Lonely Island have also booked their very first live show for July 15th at the Aragon Entertainment Center in Chicago.
