Justin Timberlake Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction During Halftime Show, Accidentally Exposes His Own Penis
February 4th - Due to an unfortunate mishap during Super Bowl LII’s halftime show, millions of viewers were subjected to much more of Justin Timberlake than they bargained for when they tuned in. The former *NSYNC member experienced a wardrobe malfunction about five minutes into his set that exposed his entire penis to the audience for a full 45 seconds.
The wardrobe malfunction appeared to be caused by a poorly sewn flap covering Timberlake’s genitals that unraveled and fell off during his performance. The gaffe comes 14 years after a similar malfunction during the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show, when Timberlake accidentally tore off a piece of his co-performer Janet Jackson’s outfit, revealing her bare breast.
Timberlake said he didn’t know how it took him 45 seconds to notice that his entire penis was visible.
“I’m a performer. When I’m up on stage I have one thing on my mind, and that is to put on a quality show for the people,” said the singer. “I don’t have time to think about what my penis is doing, or how many people can see it. All I can say is that this was not intentional.”
When asked why it took almost a full minute before the live television feed was cut out, NBC executives feigned innocence.
“We honestly just thought it was part of the performance,” said one exec. “JT has a way of hypnotizing you...you start to believe that everything on stage is happening for a reason, and that includes Justin’s penis hanging out of his pants.”
Despite thousands of complaints, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai ignored a request for comment, claiming he was busy organizing his collection of children’s tears.
