Justin Timberlake Almost Beat Up Dax Shepard While Crying

Remember that episode of Punk’d where Justin Timberlake almost started crying when the IRS was “repossessing” his property? After the cameras stopped rolling, Justin Timberlake told Dax Shepard, a man who says he doesn’t shy away from a good ass kicking, that he was going to punch him out. What made this more hilarious is Timberlake said all this while wearing a golf outfit. Speaking on the WTF Podcast via Uproxx, Shepard said:

Maron: Did they tell you that you can’t kick anyone’s ass?

Shepard: They did. As Ashton and I became friends, he said, ‘You know, you can’t, if someone gets physical with you, you’re just going to have to take it, which weirdly enough … definitely the most famous bit on the show in all the years was the Punk’ing of Justin Timberlake. What made it so viral, I guess, was that he had cried at one point in it.

And at the end of that bit, when Ashton comes out [and says], ‘You’re on Punk’d’ blah blah blah, and everyone is celebrating … the bit is over, the cameras are off, and [Timberlake] keeps saying, ‘Yeah, man. I was about to f*cking punch you. And I was like, “Hmm mmm, alright.’

‘Dude, I was for real man, I was about to f**king punch you out,’ [Timberlake continued].

And I’m like, OK, that’s number two. I’m thinking how many times can I hear this dude in his golf outfit — he was wearing a golf outfit — tell me he can punch me out before I’m just not going to be able to handle it?

And God Bless Ashton. He goes, ‘When were you going to punch him? Before or after you were crying?’

A weeping man in a golf outfit that looks like Justin Timberlake threatens to kick your ass. You do not A) engage, you B) laugh uncontrollably. There’s a good chance Timberlake even told his friends to “hold me back, bro, before I kick this guy’s ass.”

He didn’t almost start crying. He was blubbering like worse than any little girl I’ve ever seen. Calling for his mommy to come and fix everything for him.
