The Lonely Island fear. Michael Bolton “Jack Sparrow” Video

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

The tracklist to the Lonely Island’s upcoming sophomore release Turtleneck & Chain looks like one gigantic 19-track joke; which is good because, well, it’s actually supposed to be one gigantic 19-track joke. The comedy troupe, comprised of Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone and Andy Samberg, have taken on ridiculous levels of cheekiness for the new album, including many Saturday Night Live pieces including Akon’s “I Just Had Sex,” Rihanna’s “Shy Ronnie 2: Ronnie & Clyde” and Justin Timberlake’s “Motherlover,” in addition to a wide range of additionally odd inclusions. Take a selection of tracks featuring grimace-inducing titles the likes of “Japan” (too soon?) and “No Homo” (still, really?) and this new offering which debuted as an SNLDigital Short last night, “Jack Sparrow,” which features Michael Bolton. The premise: The Lonely Island crew is set to record a club-stopmer with Bolton; Bolton is obsessed with Pirates of the Caribbean and takes things in an unexpected(ly hilarious) direction. “Turns out Michael Bolton is a major cinefile” is about all that can be given away without ruining it. Turtleneck & Chain will be released May 10 via Universal.
