When Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg sang about a very special “package” back in 2006, it quickly became one of Saturday Night Live’s most memorable moments. But as iconic as “Dick in a Box” still is today, Samberg has one experience with the song he’d like to forget — so naturally, he shared it on a podcast. 

The comedian appeared on The Lonely Island and Seth Meyers to discuss the viral digital short, and in the process, he opened up about bombing at a live performance of the song. He shared that in 2007, Timberlake invited him to perform the song as a surprise encore during the Madison Square Garden stop on the singer’s FutureSex/LoveShow tour. Unfortunately, when Samberg hit the stage, his in-ear monitors fell out, which meant he couldn’t hear the beat, and so, he started “five octaves higher” than intended. Worse yet, he botched all the “funny choreographed moves.” At least he’ll always have the pitch-perfect digital short to look back on. 

While Samberg has one specific performance he doesn’t want you to see, Nicolas Cage has one that he implores you to seek out. The actor has appeared in critically acclaimed comedies like MoonstruckRaising Arizona and Adaptation, but believe it or not, in his humble opinion, none of those are his singular, must-watch performances. Instead, Cage told The New Yorker that the first movie of his that a new viewer should watch is the 2021 truffle-hunting thriller Pig. The eccentric Coppola family member explained that it’s a movie “people can get something out of” and the “polar opposite” of the high-octane characters he’s portrayed in the past. 

For its part, the timeline has much more than just one tweet worthy of taking in. Today’s funniest include those about a Parisian lunch, the pop singer who is going to be okay and the current Millennial outlook on life.
