Justin Timberlake stars as a talking lime in a hilarious new TV ad for Sauza 901 tequila. The commercial features Timberlake covered in thick green makeup as a half-human, half-lime named Rick “Sour” Vane. See the TV ad below.

In the commercial, Timberlake’s lime man reminisces about the glory days of limes and claims Sauza’s brand of tequila put him and his friends out of work. He laments that putting limes in drinks has gone out of style since the Sauza’s tequila’s tag line is “No limes needed.”

“It was like you couldn’t drink tequila without one of us!” Timberlake’s character exclaims. “When we walked into the club, it was like everything was in slow motion. Literally. It was like we were rock stars!” He adds, “Oranges? Dead! Maraschinos? Dead!”

Timberlake and his buddies then protest Sauza tequila at various bars, but unfortunately it’s too late for limes. He and the other limes eventually come up with a strategy for other uses of the citrus fruit, including using them for caps on the bottom of walkers and as back massagers.
