Weird Al Yankovic and The Lonely Island dudes present two generations of pop culture bending musical humor. They teamed up in Los Angeles for a photo shoot that appears in GQ's comedy issue for June 2013. The spread includes some images of The Lonely Island guys rocking Weird Al Yankovic's signature curls and other funny scenes.
Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone of The Lonely Island were swamped and the shoot was difficult for them to fit into their busy schedule of prepping for their new album The Wack Album that drops next week. However the trio said they'd ditch all their plans to make it happen. “We had all this stuff lined up,” says Taccone. However to spend time with their hero, “we’ll cancel f***ing everything.”
Weird Al had been in Hawaii, vacationing before setting out on his summer tour, the Alpocalypse tour. He was also prepping for the release of his second children's book. But he also got the call and made the trek to L.A. for the shenanigans. He joked about the shoot: "I actually remember listening to The Lonely Island on my AM/FM clock radio in bed, when I was just a little kid."
Below is a video giving a behind the scenes look at the insanity.
