    Forgot all about this, watching it now

    The number of people they got involved is amazing and wonderful

    Thank you. Was wondering how this hadn't been mentioned yet. Julian Casablancas really owned that track.

    Also on my list is Ras-Trent.

    That's the line that really got me going at first listen on that song. That and "hitting the chalice Ifi made from a sprite can." Some real satirical genius in that song.

    Yes it is. The song is hilarious on its own but the video sets it over the top. This moment in particular

    Knowing that I could probably look it up on my own to find the answer, which I am affirmatively choosing not to do for the sake of conversation, I've wondered what the division of responsibility amongst them is. I've always assumed it was mainly Samberg as the lyricist, with Akiva acting as producer and Jorma kind of as a utility player, but I have no actual basis for that assumption.

    I've wondered this too. I think Samberg might actually get too much credit as a lyricist because he's the only "star" of the group. I think it's probably more of an even split. And I think one of the reasons the comedy plays so well is that the music is insanely well produced. They could sell half their beats Im for a considerable amount of money.

    No doubt about it. So who is the producer? I can't imagine that they all have those kind of chops. Lord help me if I have to look it up myself.

    Also Roy Rules is on my list of favorite Lonely Island jams, if only for the line "Roy rules! I'd really like to taste him."

    I looked it up. Jorma is the producer mainly and Akiva the director. I get the impression that they all write collaboratively.

    Think they said on the Wack Album commentary tracks (available on Spotify) that most of their beats are made by professionals who aren't part of the group, which they purchase and then add lyrics to.

    Once it got down to the 2 racers it was kinda meh.

    Stuff like the David Copperfield appearing on Kit's shoulders and Will Forte's eloquent description of "a well done pussy eating symbol" was just amazing in 7 Days in Hell
