When Step Brothers director Adam McKay tweeted earlier this week that Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly would reprise their characters on a forthcoming rap album, it was reasonable to assume that it was some kind of weird joke. But as it turns out, it’s a weird joke that’s actually happening.
McKay has since confirmed the project, tweeting, “I wasn’t kidding about Step Brothers rap album. And we just found out we have a crazy big time producer.” No further details have surfaced.
In Step Brothers, a deeply strange and generally underrated comedy from 2008, Ferrell and Reilly play grown men who clash when their parents get married. After the two bond, they form a rap duo known as Huff N’ Doback.
If you are unfamiliar with Ferrell and Reilly’s rap style, here is a clip of the two performing their absurd song “Boats N’ Hoes” in Step Brothers.
