Timberlake Finds Funny And Controversy On SNL
Whatever you think of Justin Timberlake as a musician, thereís no denying that the guy kills on SNL. I donít know what it is, but so far heís batting 2/2 with Saturday Night Live performances. Maybe itís just his willingness to completely make fun of himself. He has no problem with getting on there and using his natural talents to poke fun at himself and everyone else. It works, sometimes brilliantly.
They werenít all winners this past weekend when he was there for SNLís Christmas episode, but Timberlake killed in two sketches. The first was a sketch called ďHomelessvilleĒ in which Justin played a dancing cup of soup. Alright, itís not genius stuff, but Justin makes it funny. The second one, and by far the funniest, is drawing controversy.
Itís one of those genius SNL Digital Shorts, another product of the demented mind of Andy Sandberg, the guy who brought you the Chronic-les of Narnia and Natalie Portmanís gangsta rap video. This past Saturday, the SNL Digital Short was a Justin Timberlake/Andy Sandberg music video called ďDick in a BoxĒ. Uptight critics are already screaming; calling it offensive and extreme. It's a gross overreaction, probably prompted by Timberlakeís involvement in the baring of Janetís breast a few years ago. I say, itís just funny. Guys, itís also a great gift idea. Youíll have to see it to believe it.
Iíve posted both ďHomelessvilleĒ and ďDick in a BoxĒ below. Watch, and bust a gut. Every once in awhile SNL does something right.
