Ragz To Riches

Anyone can become a celebrity in this instant fame induced digital-Internet-myspace-friendster-youtube-getyourfaceonthenet society we live in. We introduce to you today The Lonely Island Guys. This trio is a group of filmmakers founded by Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone and Andy Samberg. The group was originally from L.A. but now live in NYC.

These guys have created a numerous amount of short films that have been uploaded on YouTube for all the world to see. They even made three full length TV pilots that were rejected.
The Lonely Island Guys' website seen here shows all their short INDIES.

Their funny shorts have generated so much controversy and buzz over the Internet, that NOW the guys all work for Saturday Night Live. Jorma and Akiva are writers and Andy Samberg is a writer AND cast member. They are known for their satirical SNL digital shorts such as Lazy Sunday and
Dick In A Box.

Here's a fun short from one of the TV pilots that is "The OC" spoof called "The Bu'"

Our favorite part is: "U gonna act like a bitch u gonna look like a bitch."
