Justin Bieber has a sense of humor about 'SNL' parody of underwear ad

Justin Bieber gets shredded in an 'SNL' spoof of his Calvin Klein underwear campaign -- and he's OK with that

"Saturday Night Live" has delivered an insanely spot-on parody of Justin Bieber's recent Calvin Klein Jeans underwear ad campaign -- and the man himself approves. 

Kate McKinnon out-Biebers the Biebs as she re-creates the moody black-and-white spot that went wide earlier this month. Punch lines referencing juice boxes, tattoos, muscles and of course that big ol' bulging crotch seamlessly pepper the wanna-be-sexy scenario.

"well played. Lol," the singer said Saturday in a tweet directed toward the show's account. 

After the CK campaign launched, the "Boyfriend" singer's legal team reportedly threatened legal action against a website that posted visuals it claimed showed his muscles and his bulge had both been enlarged for the final product.

That said, screen grabs from a video that accompanied the print ad do suggest that some hair was added to Bieber's lower belly along the way.

Check out the real campaign, then watch the video above. Which one's better?
