Lonely Island’s Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping and the story of Conner4Real (Andy Samberg) is not unlike the great hero tales of old. It is a song of redemption about a fool who finds wisdom, but like all recovered fools, Conner must fall before he rises.
In this exclusive deleted clip from Popstar called “Downward Spiral,” we get an extended look into Conner’s embarrassing fall from grace and the hardship that he had to endure after he was shown to be Buffalo Bill’ing it during a concert and was revealed to be shockingly good at junk tucking. The clip also demonstrates why a dope chain matters more during a TED Talk than powerpoint skills and how the Kid N’ Play dance from House Party, a bunch of cocaine, and easy access to social media make for a ruinous party.
Whether you love Popstar with your whole heart and want to share it with your friends like some kind of Lonely Island evangelical, or missed out because you were on house arrest when the movie came out due to a total misunderstanding, you should know that the film is available on Digital HD on August 16 and on Blu Ray/DVD on September 13.
