Watch: The Lonely Island are mad crazy in new video for “We’ll Kill U”

Pin it

The Lonely Island are back with their latest video, "We'll Kill U," and they mean business. In this one, Andy Samberg takes a back seat to Akiva Schaffer (shedding the specs for more "menace") and Jorma Taccone as two affectless sociopaths who don't have a problem using their guns.

The thuggish Dr. Seuss lyrics robotically delivered, along with the cable-access-like production values hearken back to MTV's infancy. The boys play dominoes and can afford bail, so you know they're not to be trifled with. It's hard not to love these guys; in the guise of satirizing rap, they're really paying heartfelt tribute to a genre they grew up loving.
