It appears that comedians Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are giving their fans something no one on Earth wants; a Step Brothers inspired rap album! The director of the original film, Adam McKay, tweeted that the duo were working on a rap album based on the comedy film and that he was, indeed, serious. It is not clear yet how this album will factor in to a possible sequel to the film or if the album will be a commercially released disc.
Despite being a stand-out on Saturday Night Live, Ferrell has quickly soared to the ‘most insufferable comedian’ title with his string of obnoxious films that feature him shouting and exposing his bare chest. This project sounds like another misguided attempt on his part to appeal to the lowest common denominator of comedy fans and it is particularly sad to see him drag the much more talented Reilly down with him. The duo should add Jack Black to this mix to ensure maximum banality.
Do you want a Step Brothers rap album or do you think this is a bad idea?
