Reggie Watts and Tears for Fears provide a soundtrack to disarmament with “Bomb Song” — watch

on March 12, 2015, 11:15am

Reggie Watts has been known put together some pretty absurd bits of music on Comedy Bang! Bang! all on his own, but this team-up with Tears for Fears blows the rest away. The unlikely trio try to tackle the issue of disarmament, but realize it’s more complicated than they thought. If you want to blow up all the bombs, then won’t you need one last bomb? And then what if that one bomb gets stolen by a badguy? Their final solution is actually kind of a wonderful set up for a dystopian young adult novel (dibs!), and you can hear it below.

Watts’ tenure with Comedy Bang! Bang! is coming to an end this month as he moves on to become bandleader at Late Late Show with James Corden. He’ll be replaced on the IFC program by rapper Kid Cudi.
