Guests at Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel‘s extravagant wedding festivities last week were treated to a gag video featuring homeless people sending the star couple their best wishes.
An excerpt of the video, produced by Timberlake’s longtime friend, real estate agent Justin Huchel, was leaked online on Gawker, along with a letter from Huchel’s lawyer threatening legal action against the website for posting the video.
In the 20-second excerpt, which begins with the caption “Greetings from your Hollywood friends who just couldn’t make it,” a toothless man says, “Justin and Jessica, I haven’t seen you for a long time. My gift is in the mail.”
That’s followed by a transsexual man who offers, “Good luck and watch your man.”
A bearded man with no shirt says to the camera, “Justin, Jessica, it’s me — Robert,” as if he knows them.
The gag video ends with a written message, “Love Huch and Rachel.”
Timberlake’s rep did not respond immediately to ABCNews.com’s request for comment.
But Huchel’s attorney, Michael J. Saltz, made it clear that the video, which he said was stolen, was meant as a private joke.
“Mr. Huchel made a video to be used and exhibited privately at Justin Timberlake’s wedding as a private joke without Mr. Timberlake’s knowledge,” Saltz wrote in the letter that was also posted on the Gawker site.
Timberlake and Biel’s nuptials took place under the stars last week at a resort in southern Italy. The couple exchanged handwritten vows and custom-made gold bands, which they helped design, while Timberlake serenaded his bride with a song written specifically for their big day.
