Justin Timberlake References 'It's Gonna Be May' Meme With A Perfect Punchline

Jonathan Franks

Singer Justin Timberlake has proven over the years that he has a great sense of humor.

He has starred in a growing number of big-screen comedies. He is one of the most popular hosts and musical guests on Saturday Night Live.

Recently, the Mirrors singer proved that he is even capable of poking fun at himself with his own witty punchlines and impressive comic timing. Timberlake referenced a popular meme on Facebook and Twitter that seems to reemerge online towards the end of every April - a meme that simply says "It's Gonna Be May."

Probably not, right?

During the song, Justin Timberlake is the one that clearly sings the line "It's Gonna Be Me." However, when he pronounces "me" it sounds just like "May." Therefore, even though most N'Sync fans and critics know what he is really singing when they hear the 16-year-old song, the fact that he sounds like he's saying "May" is something that you just can't get out of your head once it's in there.

Based on his Facebook post, though, it is clear that Justin Timberlake may somewhat enjoy the meme himself - especially when the timing is right.

However, perhaps the biggest highlight of his post was the hashtag response that he used after referencing the "It's Gonna Be May" meme.

The hashtag #CanYouMemeYourself has started generating its own buzz on Twitter since Justin Timberlake first posted it on Facebook Friday. However, quite a few of the responses to the hashtag just go right back to the original "It's Gonna Be May" meme one way or another.

As long as there are still people that enjoy or at least remember the N'Sync song, the Justin Timberlake "It's Gonna Be May" meme will more than likely live on for many more years to come.
