The Lonely Island’s When Will The Bass Drop? Absolutely Nails Fake DJ Culture

Forget about going to the gym today, they’ll be no need after you shed pounds laughing so hard at this brilliant spoof of EDM from Akiva Schaffer, Andy Samberg, and Jorma Taccone, aka The Lonely Island. Samberg plays DJ Daavinci who teases out the dropping of the bass to the over-eager and loved-up crowd until the point of spontaneous combustion.

As he plays computer games, fries an egg and rakes in the cash while doing not much at all behind the booth, he eventually unleashes the bass—and it wrecks the place like some occult entity’s eating up the crowds’ souls.
