Dick In A Box 1st Anniversary

"Dick in a Box" (also known as "A Special Box" and "A Special Christmas Box") is an Emmy-winning Saturday Night Live digital short featuring Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg that aired on December 16, 2006. Following its debut on network television, the skit became an example of viral video after massive exposure on sites such as YouTube. The song featured was written and produced by Samberg, Timberlake, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone of The Lonely Island, with associate music director Katreese Barnes. The video is a parody of R&B sex ballad videos from the early 1990s by acts like Color Me Badd, Jodeci and R. Kelly.

On September 8, 2007 the song won a Creative Arts Emmy Award for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics. After being notified of his Emmy win, Timberlake performed the song at his concert at the Tacoma Dome in Washington.
