There's a high-quality mpeg out there on the various Gnutella peer-to- 
peer servers, and presumably BitTorrent, for those who care, but the  
legitimate title is definitely "Lazy Sunday". The rap's premise is  
pretty simple, dealing with the two performers whose work week ends  
after a live TV broadcast at 1AM Sunday mornings, sleeping late and  
going to the movies with a sack full of contraband snacks (since  
movie theaters tend to prefer you buy them there). There's also a  
very strong implication of other forms of substance use/abuse,  
particularly one notorious for inducing huge food cravings.

The same people did a similar video with Natalie Portman which was  
excellent, although no cupcakes are eaten... ;-)
