Watch: Andy Samberg Handles Fame in ‘Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping’ Trailer

Andy Samberg and the Lonely Island’s Judd Apatow-produced mockumentary finally has a trailer.

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping” follows the fluctuating success of Samberg’s Connor4Real. The trailer includes the jokes and music that fans of the Lonely Island have come to expect, in addition to a roster of A-listers. Usher, Carrie Underwood, DJ Khaled and Simon Cowell make appearances, while a hologram of Adam Levine, which as Connor points out was “so expensive,” performs on stage with the singer.

“I’d love to get Connor to the point where he’s kind of like everywhere,” his publicist, played by Sarah Silverman, explains. “Kind of like oxygen or gravity or clinical depression. He’s just everywhere.”

The clip shows Connor spending an exorbitant amount of money on the 32 people who make up his personal staff.

“Sure, Connor surrounds himself with people who are agreeable,” Silverman says.

Some of the star’s other staff members include his roadie (Bill Hader), his girlfriend (Imogen Poots), his bagpiper (Will Forte) and his Dogg Father (Snoop Dogg). Connor also has a nemesis played by Martin Sheen as well as a wolf trainer, unicorn handler and umbrella wrangler.

Connor later explains why he has so many people on staff and spends so much money to please his fans (called Connfidants): “It takes a village to make me look dope.”
