In Friends With Benefits, Justin goofs on tween rap duo Kriss Kross’ 1992 chart-topping hit “Jump” by belting out the song.
“That came from a very real place,” Timberlake told O’Brien. “We were trying to think of a song that could be funny but also a great pop culture reference for when I was, I don’t know, 12 or 13. And that song was like the song. And funny enough, I gotta say, when you go back and listen to it, it’s still a pretty awesome song. It’s still pretty jammin’.”
For the record, Justin, who turned 30 this year, would have actually only been 11 when “Jump” was released — i.e. younger (by at least two years) than the members of Kriss Kross themselves.
This in absolutely no way makes us feel old or anything. No, not at all… *sob*.
