On this week’s Saturday Night Live Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake wasted no time giving the people what they wanted: a rap medley.

Or should we say “wrap" medley?

Timberlake dressed as a roll of wrapping paper, while Fallon dressed in a gift bag, with the pair performing wrapping paper-themed rap songs to drum up business for their gift wrapping business.

They sang tunes from Michael Jackson, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and (though it's not rap) Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know."

The two competed with Aidy Bryant, whose sang traditional Christmas songs. Explaining how the two became friends, Timberlake said he used to compete with Fallon and his gift-bagging business, until one day Timberlake needed a gift bag for a deck of cards he’d bought his uncle.

“He sacked my deck,” Timberlake said.

“He’s actually a very skilled deck sacker,” added Fallon, unaware of how that sounded.

"I’ve been divorced for seven years, so I haven’t sacked a deck in a long time,” Bryant said, angering the men.

SNL airs Saturday at 11:30 p.m. on NBC
