They do satire and they seemingly do it perfectly. Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, aka The Lonely Island presented their latest twist on modern culture, reversing the meaning of YOLO to heed caution against, well, everything.

Although Andy Samberg has left Saturday Night Live, his return, alongside his cronies to premiere their latest project was welcome. Since then, and at the time of writing, the video has accumulated 8,677,972 hits on YouTube and shooting to the top of the iTunes Top 10 Comedy Songs chart.

For all of Drake's nice sentiments, he must have known that creating an acronym for 'you only live once' was ripe for mockery and japes. Of course, The Lonely Island seized the opportunity, harnessing the talents of Adam Levine and Kendrick Lamar to get their point across.

Of course, YOLO means you should embrace life; do a skydive, go travelling, eat a bug. But TLI's slant on the saying suggests you shouldn't do anything. Ever. Don't travel, go near kids, and make sure you don't have contact with sunlight, as it's bad for your health. Those are just a few of the suggestions, anyway. There you have it Drake and Lil Wayne, you only get Lonely Islanded once.
