In a "visual poem" on Netflix titled The Unauthorized Bash Brothers Experience, The Lonely Island imagines a world where, in 1988, Oakland Athletics' superstars Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire-nicknamed the Bash Brothers-made an album. It's a project called The Unauthorized Bash Brothers Experience, and it's arrived as both a film and a standalone album. It single-handedly justifies your Netflix subscription for the month. Let's remember, these are the people responsible for Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, which, though not officially named as such by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences following its release in 2016, is all but officially considered one of the greatest feats of modern cinema.
Comedic trio The Lonely Island have returned with a 27-minute Netflix special. Lyrically, they sing about everything from bench-pressing bikini babes on "Bikini Babe Workout" to roid-raging about puka shells on "IHOP", which transitions to the funky pastiche "IHOP Parking Lot" featuring Haim & Maya Rudolph (honestly, a standout bop). Are you starting to get an idea of how odd this is?

This summer, the Lonely Island will set out on their first multi-city tour. The half hour special is full of fake music videos and tunes about taking steroids, "bench pressing bikini babes", and dating Madonna. This is all to say that as much as the Lonely Island are a remnant of the mid-aughts parody video culture, they're also really talented comedians who know how to write some solid bangers.
