Andy Samberg - Is Steve in "We Like Sportz" (music video)

The sequel to "Just 2 Guyz" is here!

Taken from The Lonely Island's debut album
In stores 02/10/2009

The Lonely Island is Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone.

This is the Lonely Island music video.

0:57 Andy Samberg is Steve again!!! Andy reprises his guest appearance character, Steve.

Andy's facial expression is amazing!!!

Overall, this video is pretty funny that they are so awkward about sports, but it just isn't the same as Just 2 Guyz. The original seemed better because they seemed to have just met, being two friendless guys who became friends and started a party with just the two of them. That just seemed funnier than two guys who are awkward about sports.

Also, I enjoyed the jump cuts in Just 2 Guyz. This sequel doesn't use the jump cut effect. Instead it uses flash photography effects, which are much easier to do. I'm not sure if they didn't use the jump cuts because they also did them in Lazy Sunday and they didn't want people to think they were using Lazy Sunday effects or what. But Just 2 Guyz used jump cuts masterfully before Lazy Sunday, and I was hoping to see more of them in this video. No such luck.

Jump cuts are when the people seem to jump to new locations in the screen. It's done by keeping the camera still, moving around, and then editing out the sections where you're moving so it looks like you pop into new locations.

Check it out in the original Just 2 Guyz:

I noticed that they do use the camera effect once. The original just seemed funnier with Jorma saying stuff like "you get tossed."
