The fake footage starts off with the 43-year-old “Cry Me a River” singer staring down the camera lens when his mugshot was snapped after his alleged drunk driving bust in the Hamptons last week.

Timberlake then raises the pint glass and slowly downs the beer, the video shows.

“We’ve come to a state we can easily fake video REALLY easy now, and as this good?” Yang noted as he shared the clip on LinkedIn.

“Where do go from here?” he added, noting the video was compiled using the Kling AI app. “We have to talk about this.”

Some on social media were quick to hail the original poster’s creativity — down to how strangely real Timberlake’s hands appeared.

“Wild. The hands are really good!” one person wrote on X.

Another chimed in, “I’m f—ing dead.”

Timberlake was was pulled over and booked on a DWI after leaving the posh American Hotel in Sag Harbor, LI, on June 18.

He’d allegedly blown through a stop sign and swerved out of his lane just prior to being stopped.

The “SexyBack” singer then told arresting officers he’d only had “one martini” while refusing three times to take a Breathalyzer test, court records show.

His bloodshot-eyed mugshot quickly started being shared widely online and has become the basis of countless memes and AI-generated videos.
