haha....i found this online today, using flock (Which, if you guys aren't aware, is prob'ly the BEST browser is available for "Social Browsing!) So, not only am i staying on top of shit i like to keep tabs on....Digg comes in quite handy!

Anyways, remember that Andy Samberg song with Justin Timberlake? (C'mon...don't try to tell me that you don't remember!) Well - before i start rambling on about it - this is where the story came from:

Also, on that page - Eric Spitznagel, he's got an awesome interview with Samberg, and it's really awesome!

It can be difficult to remember anymore, but there was a time when the words “dick” and “box” weren’t so closely associated. Andy Samberg changed that forever (thanks to an assist from Justin Timberlake) with the digital short “Dick in a Box,” a parody of R&B ballads that first aired on Saturday Night Live—where Samberg is also a cast member—in late 2006. It went on to win an Emmy and log a record-setting 35-million-plus views on YouTube and other Internet sites. “Dick in a Box” has become as recognizable and hummable as Steve Martin’s “King Tut” was in the late 70s. Not too shabby for a song about male genitals.

“Dick in a Box” is just the tip (pardon the pun) of Samberg’s comedy empire. Over the last several years, Samberg and his cohorts—Saturday Night Live writers Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, who go by the collective moniker the Lonely Island—have been churning out songs and videos like a Motown hit factory, except for comedy. There’s been “Lazy Sunday,” a gangsta rap about Magnolia cupcakes and The Chronicles of Narnia; “Natalie Raps,” wherein Natalie Portman promises to sleep with your boyfriend and “kill your fucking dog for fun,” among other threats; and “Iran So Far,” in which Samberg confesses his man-lust for the butter-pecan thighs and hairy butt of Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

It was only a matter of time before Samberg and his pals made an album. Incredibad, the Lonely Island’s debut (available this week), features old favorites and a bevy of new material, including songs with such promising titles as “Punch you in the Jeans” and “I’m on a Boat”. They’ve even assembled an all-star lineup of guest vocalists, including T-Pain, Norah Jones, Jack Black, and the Strokes’ frontman Julian Casablancas. 

It remains to be seen whether Samberg’s legion of fans will pay for what they’ve been getting for free on TV and the ‘Net. But if nothing else, you can be reasonably certain that by the time you read this, Incredibad’s first single—“Jizz in My Pants”—will have been played and replayed a few million times, everywhere from office cubicles to dorm rooms, and whether you want to or not, you’ll probably know all the lyrics just by osmosis.
