According to Andy Samberg, the level of raciness in his famous "D**k in a Box" sketch is about as outrageous as he's willing to go.

If Samberg never did a thing after "D**k in a Box," he'd still be a Saturday Night Live legend, and he admits to Playboy in a new interview that he is "very comfortable" with being remembered for the hilarious 2006 SNL sketch featuring Justin Timberlake.

In fact, he says SNL boss Lorne Michaels jokes it will be on his tombstone, but Samberg vows to never go "the full monty" for a movie.

"I don't think I'd ever do it, because of the internet," Samberg explains. "Once you show your d**k, that's the first image that comes up on Google for the rest of your life. I don't want my d**k on the internet."

Strangely enough, taking his pants off seems to have been a big reason for how Samberg scored his gig on SNL in the first place. The 37-year-old Brooklyn Nine-Nine star recalls his audition for the show, saying, "I went to the flea market and bought this ridiculous pair of super-short Adidas 1980s jogging shorts. I was hanging out with Liz [Cackowski], who already worked at SNL, so I showed her the shorts and we came up with this bit about an out-of-breath jogger making random references to events from 1982."

"It made us laugh, so for the audition I put the shorts on underneath my pants, and in the last part of my audition, I took off my pants to reveal these crazy-tight shorts," Samberg continues. "Lorne Michaels says that was the moment he decided to hire me."
