Justin Timberlake knows a thing or two about making a good video.

“SexyBack”? Totally Sexy. “Rock Your Body”? Fun with light bulbs! “Cry Me a River”? The best eff you to an ex of all time!

But on Sunday night, when Timberlake receives the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards, it’ll be his costar in a different kind of video who presents him with the honor.

Jimmy Fallon, whose “The History of Rap” skits on his late-night show immediately go viral, will be the man handing Timberlake his Moonman on Sunday.

And who knows, maybe ‘NSYNC will show up, too!

Past recipients of the Vanguard award include the Beastie Boys, Madonna and Britney Spears.
