The Lonely Island is an American comedy troupe composed of Akiva "Kiv" Schaffer, Jorma "Jorm" Taccone, and Andrew "Andy" David Samberg, best known for their comedic music. Originally from Berkeley, California, the group is currently based in New York City. The group broke out due to their collective work from 2005–2011 on Saturday Night Live. Samberg and Schaffer continue to work at the show, with occasional input from Taccone, though Samberg announced at the end of the 37th season that he would not come back to SNL. Once on the show, they wrote "Lazy Sunday", a music parody video that became an instant hit on YouTube. In August 2007, the group premiered its first feature film, Hot Rod. Following the success of "Lazy Sunday", the group produced the Emmy-winning "Dick in a Box", "Jizz in My Pants", "Like a Boss", and the Grammy-nominated "I'm on a Boat", which have subsequently had huge success both on SNL and on the internet, and prompted the release of the 2009 album, Incredibad. In 2011, the group released their second album, Turtleneck & Chain, which featured songs from such SNL digital shorts as "I Just Had Sex" featuring Akon, "The Creep", and "Jack Sparrow". The music video of "I Just Had Sex" featuring Akon received over 170 million hits on YouTube.
