Between Two Ferns: James Franco, Ed Norton and The Lonely Island Head to Spring Break
Two of our favorite things on the internet are the Zach Galifianakis ‘Between Two Ferns’ and The Lonely Island web shorts. They are equal parts hilarious. But what if we told you that ‘Between Two Ferns’ and The Lonely Island teamed up for one massive video about music, spring break and gay marriage starring James Franco and Ed Norton? It’s hard to describe but you’re just going to have to watch for yourself because it’s hilarious.
What’s better than getting a new ‘Between Two Ferns’ video or a new Lonely Island song? How about getting both in one day…at the same time.
This new video starts out as a classic ‘Between Two Ferns’ with Zach Galifianakis interviewing James Franco. It includes classic lines like, “Of all the art projects you’ve done, which has made people roll their eyes the hardest?” But halfway through, Zach introduces the Lonely Island as the musical guest and that’s where things really take off. Zack and Franco join Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer on their new song “Spring Break Anthem” and they bring along Ed Norton for the ride.
In between all the talk about beer bongs and wet t-shirts, there’s a surprising amount of room left for gay marriage, which you can see glimpsed above.
As we said earlier, this is probably one of those videos that is much better watched than read about, so we’ll get out of the way and just let you enjoy this.
