Saturday Night Live's the Lonely Island--the comedy trio of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone responsible for such viral classics as "I'm On A Boat" with T-Pain and "D*ck In A Box" with Justin Timberlake--are back in another awesome Digital Short, this time collaborating with the Strokes' Julian Casablancas on an ode to that pre-iPod audio player of our musical youth, the boombox.
However, unlike the Lonely Island's previous clips, "Boombox" is no light-hearted romp. This is serious stuff, people--in fact, this video almost comes across like a PSA. As Julian intones in the cautionary song, a boombox in the wrong fingerless-gloved hands can be a very dangerous thing.
Be afraid, music lovers. Be very afraid.
