The “Saturday Night Live” Digital Short viral video factory has struck again. This weekend, the musical guest was Pearl Jam, but thankfully we were not subjected to Eddie Vedder rapping about Coco Puffs or anything like that.
Instead, the Lonely Island braintrust (Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer) debuted their video for “Boombox“, the Julian Casablancas collaboration from their year-old Incredibad album. The song might be an extended riff on the dangerous power of the ghetto-blaster, but it still features, arguably, the most expressive and emotional Casablancas vocal performance ever. I went through way too much of the past weekend with the “whaaa–oooh–whooahhh, everyone was wearing fingerless gloves” bit stuck in my head.

Too bad about Jude Law sucking as host, though.
