#2. “Jizz In My Pants” – The Lonely Island
To write a successful novelty song generally takes a generous dose of humor, so it’s no surprise that a number of the artists who have been featured in this countdown have a comedy background to go with their musical expertise. The wacky trio of weirdos known as The Lonely Island is just the opposite… comedy writers who sometimes dabbled in music to accentuate their work. The group was funny enough to be recruited in 2005 as writers for the popular sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live, where they wrote and produced their own skits for the show.
Andy Samberg and crew created many bizarre skits and music videos for SNL that are still cult favorites here in America… like “Dick in a Box,” “I Just Had Sex,” and “I’m On a Boat.” These are all great, but when I was first introduced about six years ago to their video sketch that aired on the December 6, 2008 episode of Live, I knew I had discovered something that will continue to bring me joy and laughter for the remainder of my life, no matter how many times I watch it. And believe me… that’s a lot. Feel free to let it all loose, and enjoy The Island’s masterpiece ode to premature ejaculation, “Jizz In My Pants!”
There are some songs that just can’t be completely appreciated without also viewing the accompanying video, and “Jizz” is one of those songs. The utter absurdity of both the situations and scenes coming together to tell about a subject I’m pretty sure you didn’t think could possibly be sung about at all is a work of twisted comedic genius. The overly dramatic and goofy O faces and gyrations by singers Samburg and Jorma Taccone are good, unclean fun… and the self-recognition about just how awkward the subject is once the song starts spiraling out of control is the perfect bridge to the ending rap containing plenty of “too soon” innuendo while also providing a new and unique way to show your sweetie just how much you think about her…
Yeah, I’ve made the “Cleanup on Aisle Three” reference on my blog a few times in the past. Now you know where it came from!
Be sure to come back next Monday! While we won’t have Dick Clark around to rock your New Years Eve… we will have the greatest, bestest, most awesomest novelty song of all time to ring in 2019 with! Don’t miss the party!
