Afternoon Links: The Lonely Island and Reggie Watts Kick Off YouTube Comedy Week
The Lonely Island have become grown-ass men. In a new video for YouTube’s Comedy Week, the trio take on the mature subjects of wife sex and cemetery real estate (“wobble-dee-wobble-dee drop into my grave plot”). It goes hard, because it’s #DIAPERCORE. Reggie Watts also debuted a video for YouTube’s celebration with his variation on the Rickroll, faithfully re-creating Rick Astley’s outfits and letting his upper lip dance to ’80s synth like no one is watching.
