There are exactly two things the world needs no more of: in order, they are fake rap and autotuned T-Pain cameos. End list. Accordingly this cut from the Lonely Island’s debut album should be a shitshow, except that it’s not, because it’s written by SNL’s Digital Shorties Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer. Ergo it passes muster in that 1) they are funny and 2) they know fake rap and auto-Pain are the worst and did it anyway because irony. “I’m On A Boat” doesn’t bring the sweet ejaculations of the Pet Shop Boys-nodding “Jizz In My Pants,” nor the glory holes of the Color Me Badd-tipping “Dick In A Box,” but T-Pain does confess to fucking a mermaid, so there’s that? Prep yourself for a 2:42 masterclass in stunting. This boat is REAL.

INCREDIBAD is out 2/10 via Universal. Check the tracklist.

  1. Oh hahahaha this is worthy! Thank you!

    Uhm. Which brings up a sad point – there is no difference between production and ironic production.

  2. It’s the fucking catalina wine mixer! Boats N Hoes may have been first, but I think I like this better.

    How is this funny?

  4. That is SO GREAT. Now I’m really glad I pre-ordered this album. I’m pumped.

  5. i’m shocked that this is good, but it really is.

    that kevin garnett line is great.


  8. The comedy rap song about boats has already been done. “Boats N’ Hoes”, in that movie about step-brothers, “Step-Brothers”.

      Well, your gonna, because its everywhere. Unless you just mean autotune that is purposely set too hard in order to get tha t-pain or cher sound.

      Either way, this wasn’t funny. Throw anoher faske rap song on the pile. At 24, I must be getting too old for his shit.

      P.s. fuck irony
      p.p.s. I doubt they knew better

  9. I would prefer not to listen to autotuned vocals, whether ironic or not.

    This is funny in a silly way. It’s amazing how good writing can make racial humor actually funny instead of the garbage College Humor produced.

    Sounds like 3Oh!3. Only they didn’t even try to make the lyrics thoughtful. I hate that Andy Samberg can just toss off some shit and every retard with a bong thinks its hilarious. I can’t wait for that big nosed douchebag to leave SNL for Hollywood, make a bunch of shitty movies and then disappear.
    Of course, he will probably reappear to host the Late Show four years later…

  12. no. please stop.

  13. Everything I’m clicking on today on this site is pretty blah. Maybe it’s me. In any event, the audio was not working on this. Considering I find the ‘digital short’ bits the worst part of SNL (and it’s all been pretty bad since like 1987), I do not think I’ll be getting this album.

    If you think the digital shorts are the worst part of SNL, you are either mentally retarded or being hyperbolic to prove a point. Or maybe both. SNL sans the digital shorts is basically a steaming pile of baby shit and has been for quite a while.

  15. These Lonely Island songs are better as videos. Only Weird Al makes good stand-alone comedy music.

    does anyone know the lyrics when sandberg says “I’m on a boat and, its going fast man and I gotta….something something” I loose that part.

    • ‘m on a boat and
      It’s going fast and
      I got a nautical themed
      pashmina afghan
      I’m the king of the world
      On a boat like Leo
      If you’re on the shore,
      then you’re sure not me-oh

  17. T-Pain Is Tha Besttttt all dayzzz with out T-Pain thiz song will be a shit but those guys knows how to make it work Believe Me When I say I fucked a Mermaid JAJAJA
