Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake talk about their Gifts
SAMBERG ''We wanted to do an early-'90s R&B song. I think it was Jorma [Taccone, one of Samberg's writing partners] who said, 'What about giving a gift where you take off the top and your --- is through a hole?' I came up with an idea of the melody. Once we started recording, Justin took the reins and schooled us and made it a much better song. The dude is a hitmaker; that's what he does. Color Me Badd has been brought up more [as an inspiration] because we're white. But we were drawing a lot on Jodeci and R. Kelly.''
TIMBERLAKE ''I remember Andy on set saying, 'No, we need bigger boxes.' [Laughs] Actually, we had trouble shooting it; there were so many takes where we cracked up. I knew it would be well received on the show, but I never expected it to be this phenomenon. I kept saying to Andy that this was going to be bigger than Lazy Sunday. He was like, 'Well, don't jinx it.'''
SAMBERG ''Lazy Sunday was watched over 5 million times [before NBC pulled it from YouTube]. This one was able to take off even more because NBC posted it themselves on YouTube.'' (The "Box'' clip is currently nearing the 12.6 million-view mark.)
Justin never expected it to be a phenomenon, but he said that it would be bigger than Lazy Sunday. Well, Justin, Lazy Sunday put YouTube and NBC videos on the map. It was a phenomenon.
Anyway, it's almost at 15 million views now. It's catching up with The Evolution of Dance (over 40 million, but it's been around a lot longer). NBC needs to put Lazy Sunday, Young Chuck Norris, Natalie Portman Rap, My Testicles, and Harpoon Man up. That would really increase their marketing scope.
