If you haven’t heard it yet, the Lonely Island (those guys on Saturday Night Live who gave us ‘Lazy Sunday,’ ‘Dick in a Box‘ and ‘Jizz in My Pants‘) debuted their latest music video, ‘I’m on a Boat’ on last week’s episode of SNL.
As would be expected, The Dudes have put out a ridiculously silly (and funny) song full of fake machismo. But what sells it is the addition of T-Pain, the auto-tune rapper that seems to be in every other hit featured in regular rotation on Top 40 Radio. I’ve never been a big fan of T-Pain, but his easily recognizable voice lends this rap-track a credence that puts it all over the top. His line “I never thought I’d be on a Boat” is too hilarious to even try to explain. You just have to listen to it.
The track is also the first single of their new album, which came out this week.
