The Lonely Island, the oft-musical comedy trio comprised of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, who's responsible for some of the most memorable SNL digital shorts, explained in a tweet today that they had written a parody song/music video for the Oscars, but that it was never produced, because it would've been "a logistical nightmare."
Fortunately, they've released a demo of the song on YouTube, complete with images to help you imagine what could've been. Called "Why Not Me?," the vide would've featured everyone from Thor, to Wonder Woman, to Pennywise, to the four Chris's (Pine, Hemsworth, Evans and Pratt), singing sorrowfully about their exclusion from the Oscars. Even in its raw form, it's pretty hilarious, and certainly would've given the show a much-needed viral component. Check it out below.
