On Dec. 16, SNL aired a funny-but-juvenile skit called "Dick In A Box" staring Justin Timberlake and SNL cast member Andy Samberg.
The problem, of course, is that no one watches SNL anymore.
But thanks to YouTube, the skit has been viewed over 11 million times.
A young woman from Philadelphia who calls herself "Bunny" has tried to one-up the Justin Timberlake performance with her own box-related ditty titled "My Box In A Box."
Bunny told me that Timberlake feels threatened by her version. She also said Donovan McNabb should remain the Eagles starting quarterback, no matter how well Jeff Garcia does. And she came up with a great idea for the USC Song Girls — they should make a video called "My Cans In A Can." Below is my full interview with Bunny:
Thanks for taking my questions, Bunny. If that is your real name. Which it isn't. Say, is your name Melissa Lamb?
That's my twin sister's name.
Justin Timberlake said he's not sure how he feels about your song. Do you think he feels threatened that people like your version better?
JT is very, very threatened. His sketch was OK but it was funnier the first time (when Mr. Show did it with 3 + 1 - 1) and the third time when I did it ;)
Do you think it was appropriate for Britney to show the world her box?
It must be nice to have your song played on the radio. And on YouTube. And on iPods. And cell phones. But how does that make you any money?
It's so cool people are listening to it! I heard today people are making ringtones out of it. And apparently they are playing it at college parties. But I'm making NO money on this thing. Thought I might make $ on Revver — but nobody really watched it there. And there's a tip jar on my site but it's been kind of empty lately. My Box is on eBay now.
What are you going to do with the money you make on this project?
Uh ... not really rolling in cash right now from this. But it's been fun. If I do make money, I'm going to shoot a new video! Of course!
What do you think you'll be doing in five years?
Yikes, I don't think that far in to the future. Trying to not get "boxed" in by a five-year plan.
What was your favorite box to open this past holiday season?
Well the Eagles win was fun.
If the Eagles beat the Saints on Saturday, do you think Jeff Garcia should become the permanent starter and not just a guy keeping Donovan McNabb's seat warm?
McNabb's our starter. The guy was on his way to league MVP when he got hurt. But it'd be great to hang onto Garcia next year.
Should the USC Song Girls put their butts in a box?
Hmmm, their cans in a can? Something tells me that might be a YouTube hit as well.
