Dick In A Box (Uncensored)
This is without a doubt the most buzzed-about Saturday Night Live digital short ever. (Followed closely by Natalie Portman's profanity-laden rap.)
When "Dick In A Box," featuring Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg, Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig, originally aired on SNL (in December 2006), the word dick was censored 16 times.
An uncensored version was put onto SNL's website shortly after the show aired, and subsequently landed on YouTube, where it scored more than 28 million views (and even won an Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics).
The viral video hit went on to spawn parodies including "My Box In a Box," which was good, but lacked one vital ingredient: Justin Timberlake and his dick...in a box.
