snl threes company Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake have a three way on 'Saturday Night Live' (It's OK)When Justin Timberlake signs on to host an episode of “Saturday Night Live,” a stand-out Digital Short is something of a given. Lady Gaga was bound to just be icing on the cake.

So we weren’t surprised when reports emerged this week that Timberlake and Andy Samberg were spotted in New York, sporting their “D*** in a Box” costumes alongside “Mother Lover” co-stars Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson.

But it was Gaga who played the leading lady in this latest installment of the chin-strapped duo’s saga, “Three-way.”

Announcing “It’s OK when it’s a three-way” and “It’s not gay when it’s a three-way,” Timberlake and Samberg used Gaga as an excuse for some illicit male bonding. (Really, they’ve already gotten freaky with one anther’s mothers, this was the inevitable next step.)

Does it live up to the high expectations of previous installments? We’re inclined to say that the short makes the best possible use of Gaga and the chorus might even trump “Mother Lover” as a catchy tune. The “Three’s Company” references (“Two Jack Trippers and a Chrissy”) and new Kid ‘n Play-worthy costumes just seal the deal.

Clearly, we approve. What do you think?
