Justin no to comic song hit.

Byline: By PAUL MARTIN

JUSTIN Timberlake has scuppered the release of the comedy song hit of the year.

FM104 DJs Colm & Jim- Jim have had Ireland in stitches with their spoof version of the US singer's Sexy Back hit which they renamed Sexy Joe.

The hilarious song mimics DJ Joe Duffy singing about getting a sack, back and crack wax.

But plans to make it Ireland's Christmas No1 have been wrecked because Timberlake won't give them permission.

FM 104's Jim-Jim Nugent believes the pop star is still fuming from a prank call he made to him two years ago.

He said: "I rang Justin in his Dublin hotel and pretended to be Colin Farrell.

"They put me through to the room and I, as Colin, invited Timberlake for a tour of Dublin after his show.

"Justin agreed to this, so then I mentioned Britney Spears and asked him if he knew, 'I'd given her a right aul rattle?'

"At this point Timberlake became furious and shouted, 'Screw You' before hanging up."

The station said all attempts to contact the singer and his Florida management were met with silence.

Colm Hayes added: "I'm thoroughly disappointed and gutted that we can't release this, it is the No1 that got away."

Despite the setbacks, the lads intend to give out copies of the song with their new CD.

Proceeds from The Strawberry Alarm Clock Just Havin A Laugh album are going to Help A Dublin Child appeal.
