Justin Timberlake, ‘D— in a Box’ – Best SNL Skits
Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg made history with their now-legendary ‘D— in a Box’ skit, which featured the guys in the personas of early ’90s R&B singers who present their special ladies with their packages inside packages.
The idea came together just four days before the show aired, after SNL creator Lorne Michaels told Samberg to come up something that would allow JT to sing on the show. The song was written in an hour and recorded in two. The ‘D— in a Box’ video aired during the 2006 Christmas special of ‘SNL’ and immediately became a viral sensation. It even went on to win an Emmy for Outstanding Music and Lyrics.
