Comedy trio The Lonely Island have released a parody song originally composed for this year's 90th Academy Awards.  The previously unheard track features hilarious interpretations of notable characters from Hollywood blockbusters who lament on their lack of representation at the Oscars.

"We were asked to write a song for this year’s Academy Awards," The Lonely Island writes a the start of the video. "Unfortunately, it wasn’t chosen because it was “financially and logistically impossible,” so for fun we thought we’d share the rough storyboards of what would have been a fully shot, star-studded music video of exorbitant cost. All vocals and visuals are temp, so please use your imagination and enjoy!"

Titled "Why Not Me?' the silly rough-cut features mock-appearances from the likes of Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Tiffany Haddish from her role in Girls Trip plus many othersThroughout the song, each character reflects on reasons as to why they should have been in the running for the coveted golden statue.

While Thor cites rave reviews at the box office, Wonder Woman discusses the perils of hiding a sword in her dress whilst saving the world. Most humorously, Haddish states: "I peed while hanging from a zip line. Meryl Streep has never done that!" While to our knowledge that might be true, for more outlandish reasons, you can check out the video below.

When you're done, revisit some of Tyler, the Creator's wildest lyrics to date.
