Andy Samberg and Lonely Island Debut ‘Turtleneck and Chains' – Video

Fans of Saturday Night Live and Andy Samberg should be happy today.

Samberg and his two comedy partners, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, have released their latest comedy album “Turtleneck & Chains”.

The album is available on iTunes and Amazon and features collaborations with Akon, Justin Timberlake, Snoop Dogg, Rihanna, Michael Bolton, Beck, Nicki Minaj, and Santigold.

Okay, for those of you who don’t know about Lonely Island, you may be surprised to know that you may have already seen them.

In fact, last week Samberg and company unleashed their power on Saturday Night Live with their video featuring Michael Bolton on “Jack Sparrow”.

And even if you didn’t watch SNL last week I know you have heard about the Justin Timberlake collaboration a couple of years ago with Samberg called “Dick in a box”. Sound familiar?

Samberg and company have done other tunes including “I just had sex”, “Jizz in my pants”, “Bing Bing Brothers”, “Mother Lover” and others.

The music videos started as digital shorts on SNL and have grown into the full blown comedy group known as the “The Lonely Island”.

Samberg credits his arrival on Saturday Night Live to late night host Jimmy Fallon. Andy was writing jokes for Fallon who asked him to audition for Lorne Michaels – and the rest is history.

Anyway, their new album is available today and the following video is from the title track “Turtleneck & Chains”
