Andy Samberg has joked that he will always be “inextricably linked” to Justin Timberlake because of their ‘D**k in a Box’ sketch.
Both actors debuted the faux music video on Saturday Night Live and later reprised the characters for sequels featuring Lady GaGa, Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson.
Discussing SNL with Playboy, Samberg said he knows that ‘D**k in a Box’ will likely overshadow all of his future work.
“I consider Justin a friend, but those [‘D**k in a Box’] guys are inseparable,” he joked. “The funny thing is, Justin and I have become inextricably linked because of those videos. We’ve come to terms with the fact that in every interview we ever do for the rest of our lives we’re going to get asked about ‘D**k in a Box’.”
Samberg next lends his voice to Hotel Transylvania, opening on September 28.
