Robyn & The Lonely Island’s “Go Kindergarten” Video Features Sean Combs, Paul Rudd & A Lot Of Stupid
The absolute worst, though, is the whole “Ladies, whip your dick out!” bit. It’s horrifying and completely offensive. But also kind of transcendent. In fact, let’s watch that shit again.

Even though “Semicolon” riffs off rap’s current obsession with commas (as in, the number that appears in their current salaries), and chancellor reference aside, the Lonely Island clearly had the ’90s in mind: “‘Did I do that?’ Urkel / Angela, Who’s the Boss? / Merkel.” So when Morissette interrupted to correct them on their use of semicolons, the Lonely Island paused, then fired back with another retro reference.

The rapper, alongside director Baz Luhrmann, compared genres like hip-hop to the Jazz era: “Jazz was this almost underground music at the time, like hip-hop started out.

The premise: It’s a spoof off “The Dating Game,” and the “Dick in a Box” duo team up as Contestant No. 2. (Their rainy day cure for their dream tenderoni: Dry her off with a old rug — “It’s softer than it sounds.”) But the plot thickens, once Steve Martin and Dan Aykroyd appear as Contestant No. 3: the Festrunk Brothers, another famed SNL bachelor duo who exchanges American catchphrases via their heavy Czechoslovakian accents and wears plaid pants to accentuate their, erm, bulges.

In this video, the guys are offering cautionary advice like burying money in your backyard because banks are shady, avoiding loud clubs because they’re bad for your ears, and the best — staying away from kids because “their hair is filled with mad lice.” Musical guest Kendrick Lamar even checks in for a verse on low-risk 401K options and financial forecasting.
