Justin Timberlake Wishes You A Happy Mother’s Day

Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake, the duo responsible for Saturday Night Live ‘s viral video ” Dick in A Box ,” were at it again this weekend, pasting on absurd facial hair and recording ” Motherlover ,” a spoof song in honor of Mother’s Day about two friends who really want to love each other’s mothers (played, in the video, by Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson). Like really, really: “We both love our moms, women with grown women needs/ I say we break ‘em off/Show ‘em how much they really mean/’cause I’m a Mother Lover/ you’re a Mother Lover/ We should fuck each other’s mothers/ ‘cause every Mother’s Day needs a Mother’s Night,” and so on.

Written out, the lyrics read raunchy, but the overall effect was… sweet. (Not so sweet that you would actually send this to your mother, but sweet enough that you theoretically could). These are two absurd dudes trying to do a solid for their moms, and sometimes that means considering, as they say, “that place that you came out as a baby,” which, let’s be honest, very few children willingly do. Happy belated mother’s day!
