“D**k in a Box,” last December’s music video performed by Justin Timberlake and “Saturday Night Live” cast member Andy Samberg, was honored at the Emmy’s creative arts ceremony.
“I think it’s safe to say that when we first set out to make this song, we were all thinking ‘Emmy!'” Samberg joked in accepting the award Saturday for best original music and lyrics.
“The other thing we were thinking was, ‘Hey! Here’s this young up and comer, Justin Timberlake, who is clearly very talented and could clearly use a break,'” Samberg said. “So, Justin, if you’re out there, congrats to you, kid.'”
The video, which beat out competition that included two songs from a musical edition of “Scrubs,” became an Internet sensation. It garnered millions of views on YouTube and NBC’s website, which posted an un-bleeped version.
The Creative Arts Emmys, which recognize technical and other achievements for the 2006-07 season, will air Sept. 15 on E!, the night before the Primetime Emmy Awards on Fox.
