There’s no comedy bromance like Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon, the slapstick duo who’ve been rolling out hilarious sketches on late-night TV since the early 2000s. The two continued their streak of collaborations on Tuesday (Aug. 8), bringing back their now-classic “Camp Winnipesaukee” sketch for Fallon’s Tonight Show, but it’s hardly the first time they’ve joined forces in the name of comedy.
In fact, it’s been more than a decade since Jimmy and Justin took on their first comedy collaboration with SNL?’s “Barry Gibb Talk Show” sketch. And while many of the duo’s earlier videos are unavailable online, we couldn’t help but take the opportunity to revisit some of their best recent work.
Check out these 10 ridiculous Timberlake-Fallon sketches guaranteed to make you crack up:
“The Barry Gibb Talk Show”
After meeting backstage at MTV’s 2002 Video Music Awards — where Fallon was hosting and the ex-‘N Sync member was making his debut performance as a solo singer — the two inaugurated their comedy partnership with SNL‘s “Barry Gibb Talk Show” in 2003. The parody talk show aired six times — its last edition, in 2013, featured cameos from the real Barry Gibb and Madonna.
“Real People, Fake Arms”
Fallon’s “Real People, Fake Arms” series lent a hand — literally — to JT in this gut-busting 2013 sketch, which takes place at a suit shop. Watch above as Timberlake gets roasted on his boy-band days alongside Fallon and guest Steve Carell. (And yes, you can absolutely expect a reference to Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience track “Suit & Tie.”)
The Ragtime Gals: “SexyBack”
You can count on Tonight Show barbershop quartet The Ragtime Gals to make any song sound innocent, even Timberlake’s signature promiscuous 2006 hit. Skip ahead to watch Fallon take the spotlight for his own solo during the a capella performance.
Timberlake and Fallon make a mockery of people who over-use hashtags in this sketch, having an entire conversation based around hashtags about everything from cookies to Duck Dynasty. It’s The Roots’ Questlove who finally gets the two to quit, kindly asking, “hey guys, hashtag, shut the f–k up.”
“Evolution of End Zone Dancing”
Timberlake and Fallon take a break from their history of hip-hop videos (more on that next) to groove their way through the history of NFL touchdown celebrations in this parody of Judson Laipply’s viral 2006 “Evolution of Dance” video. Okay, maybe most of these are made up, like the “taking a selfie” and of course, the “Justin Timberlake (From ’N Sync).”
“History Of Rap 6”
We’re up to chapter 6 of Fallon and Timberlake’s “History of Rap” sketch, where the two run down a medley of hip-hop classics in attempt to eventually cover every iconic track and artist in the genre. This time around, that includes songs like Nelly’s “Country Grammar,” Salt-N-Pepa’s “Let’s Talk About Sex,” Kendrick Lamar’s “B–ch Don’t Kill My Vibe” and Drake’s “Know Yourself,” with 23 tracks total.
The bromance gets real in this hilarious Tonight Show sketch, where Timberlake and Fallon communicate only through longing gazes and serious looks. It’s all set to the tune of Rogue Wave’s 2006 “Eyes,” pun definitely intended. Comedy legend Will Ferrell hops in near the end with a “look” or two of his own.
Out of all Fallon and Timberlake’s comedic ventures, the recurring Camp Winnipesaukee sleep-away camp sketch is one of the best. This time around, the two throw it back to offer a brace-faced rendition of none other than Alanis Morissette’s “Ironic.” Shh — it’s after lights-out.
“Cold Open – SNL 40th Anniversary Special”
In maybe their most impressive musical medley yet, Fallon and Timberlake offer a five-minute cold open to SNL’s 40th Anniversary using catchphrases from, yes, all 40 years of the show’s history.
Okay, this one isn’t exactly a sketch. But the image of Fallon and Timberlake riding through the Hamptons together on Fallon’s two-seater bicycle — a gift from the comedian’s wife — is too hilarious to leave out. In the episode, Fallon explains that Timberlake took a liking to the bike, and asks to take a ride every time he visits Fallon’s house. “I have it in my garage for when Justin Timberlake comes,” Fallon explains. Thus, the “Bro Bike” was born.
