In a Box

My peeps are letting me down.

I gave up on SNL a few years back. Too much dreck. But at least one jewel came out of last season, and I only discovered it yesterday:

Justin Timberlake on SNL: My D*ck In a Box

Add this into a new blag category: Videos You Should Know About (V.Y.S.K.A.) I've not found anything at'all interesting about Justin Timberlake. But this is effing hysterical, and I've a newfound respect for him. Well, for his sense of humor.

But wait. It gets better.

Those in the know on this video were tickled, make-me-pee-my-pants pink when two college girls made their video response to the SNL piece, dubbed My Box In a Box:

The sight gags might be better in the SNL vid, but the lyrics in the chick vid are a skosh funnier. To me. And these girls aren't paid comedy writers.

But wait! It gets even better!

The SNL piece has been nominated for an Emmy. I sh*t you not!

Timberlake may be older, and even funny, but he'll never excape his boyband past. Y'all might recall my previous post wherein I introduced you to DaVinci's Notebook and their Grammy-deserving song, My Enormous Penis.

The also crafted Title of the Song, deconstructing the boyband song structure at its finest. You, too, can be a young Justin Timberlake. Too bad the vid below is only scored by DaVinci's Notebook - guess these are some college blokes who were inspired to make their own vid. But worthy of a listen, nonetheless.

"Dick in a box" is one of my all time fave SNL Christmas bits (pun fully intended : ) I especially lose it over the instructions. Absolutely the perfect send-up of the heart and soul of boy band music : )
