ICYMI: NSFW video of Blangalangalang and DJ Footy PJ

04/15/2009

ANIMOSITY PIERRE is set to debut a new show tonight, and it’s got me excited about what they’ve got up their sleeves. Thinking back on all the shows I’ve seen them do, my favorite of their characters has probably been the rap duo Blangalangalang (aka Balal) and Footy Pajamas (aka DJ Footy PJ).

My first encounter with these comic OGs was back in January of last year at Die Actor Die when they debuted their very NSFW single, Lick That Asshole. ICYMI the first time, Comic vs Audience was kind enough to catch it on tape.

SERIOUSLY NSFW:
