Justin Timberlake Serves Up A Minestrone Of Pop-Rap Hits

May 11th, 2009 // 6 Comments

Sure, the Christmastime setting of Justin Timberlake’s Saturday Night Live skit in which he dresses up as a cup of soup and retrofits “Shoop,” “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” and “Whoomp! There It Is” for the purposes of collecting cash for a charity–and out-hipping the sad-sack Salvation Army Santa who only knows moldy old carols–seems a bit odd, given that the calendar was just flipping to May 10 when it happened. But you have to admit that even while in instant-lunch drag, his performance doesn’t come off as foam-handed in the least. (EDIT: Oh, it did air in December; this is what happens when you watch TV via online “Recently Updated” lists, ha ha. The sequel clip, in which JT dresses up as a breast implant and invites people on down to “Plasticville”, is below.) Meanwhile, if you somehow didn’t have “Motherlover”–Timberlake and Andy Samberg’s Mother’s Day-themed sequel to “Dick In A Box”–e-mailed to you 10 times over the past 36ish hours, it’s after the jump.

  1. I’m pretty sure the first video was from JT’s hosting job like 2 1/2 years ago. The same one with the “Dick in a Box” song (and, in fact, that WAS a December episode). Either we all know that and I’m pointing out the obvious, or someone’s mixed that video up with the similar one from the other night where he’s dressed up as a silicone breast implant, singing “Give it on up for Plastic-ville!”

  2. @eltedioso: I am never watching TV via the Internet again.

  3. I think the very first clip was even before Homelessville. It was Chris Parnel and JT as bacon and eggs, and JT singing about visiting Omletville.

  4. Goddamn… Susan Sarandon is 62?!

  5. @bladerunner11: That’s how you know it’s old — Parnell’s been off the show for three seasons now.

  6. Wow. I didn’t realize how very, very much of this episode was recycled from his last 2 turns hosting. Feels kinda cheap.
