Last night on Saturday Night Live, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping debuted the music video for “Finest Girl (Bin Laden Song)”. In the tune, Connor4Real (Andy Samberg) relates the story of a girl who wants to get nailed like we nailed Bin Laden. It helps give a sense of humor that we can expect from the upcoming film, which follows a vain popstar as his second album crashes. As we saw from Walk Hard, parodies of musician biopics live or die by the quality of their songs. Judging by “Finest Girl”, The Lonely Island is continuing to crank out hilarious, high quality songs.
Check out the video for “Finest Girl (Bin Laden Song)” below. Popstar opens June 3rd.
Here’s the official synopsis for Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping:
Universal Pictures’ POPSTAR: NEVER STOP NEVER STOPPING is headlined by musical digital-shorts superstars Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, collectively known as The Lonely Island. The comedy goes behind the scenes as singer/rapper Conner4Real (Samberg) faces a crisis of popularity after his sophomore album flops, leaving his fans, sycophants and rivals all wondering what to do when he’s no longer the dopest star of all.
The latest comedy from blockbuster producer Judd Apatow (Trainwreck, Superbad, Knocked Up) co-stars Sarah Silverman, Tim Meadows and Maya Rudolph and many of the biggest names in comedy and music in cameo performances. Co-directed by Schaffer and Taccone and written by The Lonely Island trio, POPSTAR is also produced by Rodney Rothman (producer of Get Him to the Greek, Forgetting Sarah Marshall; co-writer of 22 Jump Street), as well as Samberg, Schaffer and Taccone.
