The Lonely Island Stand Up for the Humble Blockbuster Movie with New Oscar Song
Published Mar 05, 2018A whole bunch of stuff went down at the Oscars last night (March 4), but despite some hit-and-miss jokes from Jimmy Kimmel, the show certainly could have used some more comedy. As it turns out, the Lonely Island wrote a hilarious song for the show, but it was deemed "financially and logistically impossible to complete."
Fortunately, the three comedians have shared a demo of the song. Immediately, its implausibility becomes clear — the track is an anthem about how it's unfair that blockbusters aren't given the same respect as highbrow Oscar movies.
As such, the track includes would-be vocal performances from the stars of Thor, Wonder Woman, The Fate of the Furious, The Last Jedi, Girls Trip and many, many more. To get all of these people singing would have cost a damn fortune.
Either way, you can enjoy a demo of the song below.
