Justin Timberlake gets boxed in on 'SNL'

144041__dib_lIf you havent yet seen "D–k in a Box" (pictured, featuring digital clip master Andy Samberg and guest host Justin Timberlake), the genius new digital short from this past weekend’s Saturday Night Live, please click here for the unbleeped version. (Clip is very NSFW; children and others with more delicate sensibilities ought to pass.) Everything about this clip is amazing: the dead-on send-up of Color Me Badd (down to the goatees, ridiculous suits and even the way the last syllables of the chorus go increasingly up), Timberlake hanging from a basketball hoop with a box on his crotch, and the simple, yet necessary instructions ("One, cut a hole in the box. Two, put your junk in the box."). What a way for JT to cap off what has been a fantastic year for him. Can SNL just focus on digital shorts from now on? We’re in the aughts now; kill the "live."

    That was so disgustingly funny. oh man. We recorded that episode, and I wouldn’t let my parents watch that. Heck, I probably shouldn’t have been watching it myself. Oh Lord, that was funny.

    I haven’t laughed so hard at SNL in a loooong time. I was dying watching this, I laughed so hard I cried, it was so funny. I’m glad it’s up on YouTube, it certainly bears repeat viewing.
    The Barry Gibb Talk Show was funny too, I love the theme song.

    I have watched this video five times and am still laughing. This will definitely be on my New Year’s party playlist!

    Much as I hate to take Alec Baldwin down a peg (he’s still my pick for Entertainer of the Year, though, although Sacha Baron Cohen probably has him beat), the Timberlake show was probably the best SNL of 2006. JT was hilarious all the way thru, in the D–k In a Box short, as a lip-challenged Target clerk, and busting a move in a Cup O’ Soup suit.

    Boy when I saw it Saturday, I really thought it was c–k in a box. Can I still pretend that’s what it is?

  • Daniel

    I agree with Cruz, Kill the Live! This is what the people want. I want Portman and Timberlake to do one of these together. lol

    I thought Justin was fantastic on SNL. I hardly watch the show anymore but happened to tune in on Saturday. D*ck in a Box was HILARIOUS. So was Justin as the rapping cup of soup. And the Gibb brothers skit. And the Target skit. All very funny. Good stuff. I’ve been sort of ambivalent toward Justin, but he earned my respect on Saturday.

    I agree wholeheartedly with everyone. This episode was hilarious. My sister and I were hoping he’d do a sequel to the “Bring it on down to Omeletteville” sketch and we were so excited when he did the “Homelessville” sketch. It was a great way to start the show.

      Tim,If you are unaware (and I am the hyhtcpetioal pastor), then to make the information available is loving. If you are aware, then to reiterate the information or expect compliance is not.fishon,I’ll leave open the possibility that I might be a better man than you, but I doubt it.When someone is wrong we tend to put them into boxes based on which of the categories we think they are. Sure, we can leave them in limbo for a period while we try to figure out which one of the categories they are, but eventually we’ll think of them as one of those categories. Are they lying? No there does’t seem to be an intention to deceive there. Are they deceived? Well, possibly, but they don’t seem to have swallowed any lies, they just see a different meaning or outcome. Not being the other two they must therefore have missed out on some information that I have, so I’d better tell them everything I know so they can see things my way. If that doesn’t work then its back to the first two categories depending on how much we like the person (if we like them they must be deceived, if we don’t then they are deceptive). Of course us religious folk have another category to put the leftovers’ in. If they are wrong, and we can’t honestly put them in the first 3 categories, they must just be sinful (depraved). There we go, all neatly categorised into what sort of wrong they are, and we can relate to them as their category befitsI’m not saying that the categories should be done away with. As is easily shown, there are those for who the shoe undoubtedly fits. I’m saying they are inexhaustive and we should try to create for ourselves the possibility of relating to someone who, being wrong, is not deceived, dishonest, dense or depraved because, IMO and experience, they aren’t any of these.

    JT’s SNL was the funniest of 06 so far. JT and Alec Baldwin are my favorites on SNL. They are so versatile that they always find the best skits for them.

  • bma

    I also thought it was “C–k in a Box”, and that sounds funnier. But I still laughed both times I saw it!
    Also loved the sketch where JT auditioned to be an elf (in drag, with Keenan Thompson as his mom) — does anyone know if that was also a repeat character from when he was on before?

  • Alison

    I still watch Justin’s first SNL episode on a very fuzzy VHS tape, so I was extremely excited to see him host on Saturday. Every sketch he was in was hysterical. I think people forget that Justin got his start on a variety show, (Mickey Mouse Club, anyone?) so he feels comfortable in this type of comedic acting.

    That is truly the only gift I am giving this year, so if it’s not appropriate, you’re not getting a present. Sorry, Mom.

  • susan

    I agree this episode was the funniest snl this year. I laughed till I just about peed my pants over the d— in the box film. I also really loved the alvin and the chipmunks opening the homelessville skit and the barry gibb talk show. But now that I’m thinking about it every skit Timberlake was in was good. But the d— in a box is just hilarious. I loved his perfomance also of what goes around. Timberlake should really do a comedy. He’s a great comedic performer.

    this digital short was in fact funny, but if you go back and look at them all it is a bunch of junk punctuated by the occasional lazy sunday hit. so making it just a bunch of digital shorts is in fact a terrible idea. actually now that i think about it the show would be exactly the same…a bunch of terrible with a small beacon of funny here and there.

  • joe

    I never knew that JT did anything other than sing. And that target episode was a riot. Does the Target company mind being poked fun at on national TV? Maybe it is good advertising for them. The latest I have heard is that JT and Nicole Richie are the newest couple. Hopefully JT will do another episode of SNL.
