The Bu

Last year I was introduced to the Lonely Island Boys. The Lonely Island Boys are a comedy/film making trio made up of Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone and Andy Samberg. At one time FOX asked them to film a pilot for their show Awesometown, but the show was canceled. A video spoof of the Ying-Yang Twin's song Wait (The Whisper Song) can also be found on the site. It is called the Bing-Bong Brothers. Recently they joined Saturday Night Live as actors and writers. There have been rumors they are working on their first full-length movie Hot Rod.

My favorite short on their site is the first episode of The Bu. The Bu is a spoof on the show The OC. They describe it as "Young, sexy people that live in Malibu call it The 'Bu, because when you say the entire word, it takes time, and then you wouldn't be young anymore." Many of the episodes also star Sarah Chalke from Scrubs. In some of the following episodes Sarah's character was replaced by a puppet, and then a man in a wig. I heard this is because Sarah was busy with Scrubs and they still wanted to continue the series. The first episode features an introduction to the two main characters, as well as Frazzles the squirrel. It's the only episode that is in 3-D. Hilarity ensues.
