So you won’t actually see JT for a good six minutes or so into the clip (before that it’s people old and young dancing around or something), but when you do it’s pure 20/20 Timberlake, dressed in one slick black Tom Ford topcoat and turtleneck and sporting some hardware wingtips courtesy of Christian Louboutin. Then some Cirque du Soleil-type ladies come out and we get a bit lost again. The takeaway: Timberlake is still killing it in the style department, perfectly sculpted hair included.

Our second 2011 Men of the Year features the funniest, goofiest, sing-songiest entertainment duo since Martin and Lewis, and raise your hand if you saw that coming three years ago. GQ’s Lauren Bans interviewed the two pals together for our December 2011 issue, and we especially enjoyed this exchange about JT’s old boyhood showbiz buddy Ryan Gosling. Click here to read the full conversation. And click here to see more of Peggy Sirota’s classic photo shoot with the pair.
Timberlake: The first job I ever had when I was ten was on a television show, and that show was the same format as SNL, it’s just that the writers were writing for kids.
GQ: The Mickey Mouse Club, right?
Timberlake: Yes. That’s what it was called.
Fallon: Dude, I was just talking to [Ryan] Gosling about that. Did Gosling really live on your couch when he was a kid?
Timberlake: So he tried to make it seem like he was bohemian even back then?
Fallon: Definitely, man. He said he was struggling and you helped him out.
Timberlake: Ryan’s mom had to stay back in Canada and my mom was his guardian for a year so he could come down and be on the show. But Gosling got his own bed. He didn’t sleep on the couch. He said that?
Fallon: It’s a better story!
Timberlake: I’m picturing a ten-year-old Gosling bumming Marlboro Reds off some bum, growing hipster facial hair…
Fallon: “All I got is this one pair of Underoos, man! I got nothing, man!”
