Clip of the Day: Barry Gibb Talk Show

About a week and a half ago, Robin Gibb of the popular disco group The  Bee Gees fell into a coma.  He was being treated for cancer when contracted pneumonia.  While in the coma, his brother and co-Bee Gee Barry Gibb and other members of his family sang to him in hopes that he would eventually wake up and regain consciousness.  Well, good news!  Yesterday, Robin Gibb did in fact wake up from his coma and is showing signs of recovery!  What better way to celebrate than with the classic Jimmy Fallon SNL sketch, The Barry Gibb Talk Show featuring Justin Timberlake as Robin Gibb!  

Also, a fun fact about this particular Barry Gibb Talk Show sketch.  Of the 5 people in the sketch, Horatio Sans is the only who was actually a cast member at the time.  Cameron Diaz was the host.  At the time, she was dating Justin Timberlake, so she got him to come on the show, and Jimmy Fallon, who had recently left SNL, came back to reprise the popular sketch with Justin Timberlake.  Drew Barrymore was co-starring with Cameron Diaz at the time in Charlie's Angels, so she made a surprise appearance on the show too.
